The Committee

My committee is made up of ideas and behaviours rather than actual people. I don’t think this is it. I’m sure there are more lurking around in my life. I will add them to the list when they chose to reveal themselves. In order for me to attempt to get rid of them I have turned some of them into characters. Yes, these will have come from real people years ago, “what can you do with art?” said my dad when I was 16 years old and got an A for art but epic fail for my maths exams (I still can’t add up very well). The mantra of get a job get a job has obviously come from my parents and family but now they acknowledge my talent (ooooh hark at me getting above my station) and want me to actually do something with it. I have dealt with the people but not the legacies as they run deep and aren’t always that obvious. I feel as if they are in the very DNA of me.
