Ghostly Galleon - m.joy


The Highwayman

The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor

And the highwayman came riding—
         Riding—riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.

Hooked is a project to use Art to express answers to questions about Addiction around themes.

  • The addiction cycle – craving, harm, recovery, relapse
  • The addicted brain – adolescent brains and brain plasticity
  • The addiction experience – life as an addict, friends or family
  • Stigma – associated with being an addict, wider society
  • Individual and social ‘recovery’ – how do we recover from addiction?
  • Geography – what would an addiction map of London, the UK or the global picture look like? Does place influence addiction?
  • Policy – throughout history, evidence has often been made to fit policy, rather than the other way around. How do we build a society where people can form healthier bonds?
  • Causes of addiction –What makes people vulnerable to addiction?

There are no easy answers – but some information here: Overcoming drug addiction.

this morning..

woke up and saw a heron loving the morning sun, perched on very top of tallest fir tree – then opened its wings and flew away

Meteor Shower

Last night and night before – looked for shooting stars, the first night saw 7 and last night 5 – and waited and waited for one more – but it never arrived that i could see but feel very lucky for those i saw and understand there are hundreds passing over our heads right now – so make a wish, maybe, who knows..

“Ships at a distance have every man’s wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the same horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his eyes away in resignation. That is the life of men. Now, women forget all those things they don’t want to remember, and remember everything they don’t want to forget.”  Zora Neale Hurston

Stories from Sweden

“In the very same countryside that has been left behind, there are whole populations that grow, build, bake, sew, print and generally fiddle about in full hipster fashion – and it’s not a lifestyle. They are just doing their jobs” … story by Peter Hammarbäck
