If you’re getting neck ache trying to read that, it says: I don’t have to write in only one colour and I don’t have to write in traditional lines from left to right. There are advantages to the traditional way of doing things.

You can easily experience a different landscape every day for a week. “The Dead Sea” I’m standing beside a grid of square, shallow ponds, each one maybe a metre across edged with stone. The water in each pond is a pale coral pink, with a lacy white edging. Some have white mounds in the centre….
