a home for the leaves


666 Day XL

I have had this perspex box for a number of years and always wondered what I could put into it. Since I have been reluctant to say goodbye to the leaves, today they found a home and the box finally has a purpose.


Families Belong Together

666 – the final 15


666 – Day XXXVIII
The final fifteen together with their neighbours.



The final fifteen leaves in position at 7:30 this morning.

Tomorrow, look for the completed piece and a few final words of appreciation.

17 new leaves and remembrance

666…in progress – Day XXXI

17 new leaves, on a day on which I remember as if it were yesterday, like some of you I suspect, as a 17 year old schoolboy where I was when I heard that President Kennedy had been assassinated. These inspiring words from his inaugural address could not be a more relevant call to action today.

“Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”

12 new leaves

666…in progress – Day XXVIII

534 leaves completed on a day when we learn that the White House killed a deal in October 2019 to pay for mental health care for migrant families separated at the border.
