My idea of hell

19 Apr


I often fill my Sundays with music.

Usually a rich and eclectic mix of sounds from all over the world.

Different genres, different, times, different countries.

I long ago realised that I like music the way I like people.

Diverse in age, sex and sexuality, ethnicity, colour, language and culture.

I realised too that my idea of hell is a place entirely populated by straight white people.

Like me.



NB  Obviously the painting represents more my idea of heaven than one of hell.

    I adore every piece you write, but alas I cannot read your book(s)!

    Music and all types of art is universal. Defining them with a particular type would be unfair. Love this piece as always. ♥️♥️

    Man wakes up to find himself trapped in a vanilla world. I think that’s a real fine movie plot. 😄

        Now that I think of it, most of us do live that life. Or maybe it lives us. In any case, you escape yours with words so very well!
