I pity inanimate objects (because they can’t move)*
3rd Feb to 29th March
In their 1979 song* Godley & Creme posed this question, going on to ponder the happiness of objects around us by asking “is a tree as a rocking horse an ambition fulfilled, and is the sawdust jealous?”
What of the unrealised ideas and thoughts we have? Wonderful as they are and as good they feel to revisit many never see the light of day. What sympathies do we need to extend their way for their looping paths through the eddies of the mind? How do we let them go? Who gives a shit?
As an automatic collector/hoarder of interesting things all of the components in this collection have been around me for years without me knowing why. Plucked from the corners of my flat and combined automatically without judgment these items without use now meet ideas longing to be somewhere. Hopefully to play a silent Godley & Creme cover for passers by to hum along with.
They’re now out of my flat/head and I’m glad for them.
