A Year in the Mud and the Toast and the Tears by Georgie Brooks
2020 – Release
A laugh-out-loud account of a young family’s misplaced confidence in themselves to become hobby farmers in rural Adelaide Hills, where their fantasies about life in the country are progressively destroyed and their almost total ignorance about everything agricultural is revealed…
“Drawing, indeed, transforms the secret passageway between the eye and the heart into a two-way street — while we are wired to miss the vast majority of what goes on around us, learning to draw rewires us to see the world differently, to love it more intimately by attending to and coming to cherish its previously invisible details.”
How true that is! Over the years, painting and writing have played a similar role in my own journey with love, loss and the process of reinvention.
