James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Marcel Proust are among its notable early exponents. "a stream-of-consciousness monologue

I love this word. "braindrops" It brings to mind the way my mind wanders, occasionally spitting out onto paper and canvas all of the stimuli it takes in, then moves onto the next big thing to catch my attention. My son, Declan, shared it with me. It really sums up my idea for the blog; drops of whatever falls out of my brain. I'm easily distracted, lack discipline most days, and I'm always on the quest for some aesthetic inspiration which i intend to share here. Hopefully once a week. Apparently it is also the name of an album by the Aussie punk group Tropical Fuck Storm, which given the current pandemic apocalypse weirdness we are all collectively living, I am oddly feeling connection.

So. Sit back. Enjoy. If you'd like to comment you're going to need to create an account and join. Because trolls and bots suck. Peace
