Activity 10 - Make it your own

I'm feeling reasonably well today, so thought I'd crack on with Activity 10. Yesterday, I took notes in my local park, while walking my dog 'Lottie', but wasn't inspired by what I came up with. So I thought of a place I felt strongly about; the dentists when I was a young boy. It was a hateful experience and after much research on google and YouTube to find stuff I could relate to, here's what I came up with:

Activity 10 - Make it your own

1. Colour: Cream

4. Contrast to ‘tension’

REM. ‘Everybody Hurts’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rOiW_xY-kc

I hope it's okay to post such stuff on my personal blog but I don't have much else to write about. You might be interested in a couple of poems I wrote before starting this course:-
