Lists 2015 – 2018
An archive of the spaces between the events in the life of a middle-aged woman. A life that is both as ordinary and as extraordinary as the next person. Much that is referenced is quite ridiculous; these are affluent first world lists of abundant food, after school activities and home improvements.
However, it is a human universal fear that none of us know what is going to happen tomorrow. Are my lists an attempt to construct the pretence that I have some sort of control over events? And so, as the unimaginable happens, the lists become a record of resilience - of just doing one more thing, one more thing; until another week has passed, another month.
Keep going, just keep going – shower and wash hair, blitz the bathroom, put the compost out, trim the dog, worm cat.
