I am going to fall off the edge of the world and I will not scream out your name.
I will not give you that attention, you are so very vain!
I am falling for me, because as I fall I am free
As I get to ignore you and your ways
As I keep falling into place
My fall is part of the jigsaw of life
I ignore you and your drama and strife
Because I have to take care of me
Because I can and you will see!
Anne Stokes is one of my favourite Gothic artists; if I had money I would try and decorate my house with more of her work. As a Christmas present in 2012 my nephew Carl and his daughters gave me a 1000 piece puzzle of Aracnafaria, one of Anne Stokes masterpieces. I finished the puzzle in just 10 days. I am so proud of it, it’s still wrapped in cling film around a board that I had intended to use as a backboard in order to eventually frame it, but I have never got around to doing that and it’s stored on the top of my wardrobe.
As an artist I aspire to do work as great as Anne Stokes, however, in my own opinion it’s just an airheaded dream, because I am nowhere as good as Anne Stokes and I specialise mostly in what I think are cartoon dragons and animals.
