The politician, the actor, the businessman, the student, the housewife… Everyone wants 
to have their own blog. To share their opinions, experiences, and dreams with others. 
To speak of the day that’s gone by. To criticize and to praise. To interest others in their life…

Stories both ordinary and extraordinary. Compelling tales and boring ones… The Internet  
is increasing full of blah, blah, blah…                                             


I like Krakow for many reasons.

The people are the main reason, Krakow is so easy, small compact, so much in such a small place, I feel at home there. Life here is not so nice, the UK is not the place I grew up in, so much has changed and not for the better.

Had a coffee outside today, very warm and sunny here in Wales. It is not always like this, it often rains.

Take care.   Frank.


Dear Anita
Thank you for the invitation to Marek´s exhibition. He and his wife Jolanta (who is a wonderful graphic artist) are my best friends in Poland. We have often visited each other, have had exhibitions together and Jolanta and I have been on int. workshops together several times.  
We have known each other since the 1980´s. So its many years of friendship.
I have still not heard anything from Elzbieta. I dont know where she is at all and would hate to lose my connection with her.   

1000 autumn greetings from Lis Gram.

Hi Tom and Anita,

This afternoon the chair finally arrived. everything is okay! It is wonderful, and I’m very happy that I’ve taken it!!!
I have only to put the silicon on the two glasses to fix them again, hoping, that it will keep!
The candleholder is perfect too!

Best regards from Bolzano


Hello Anita,

I hope you are well and staying on top of your busy lifestyle. I am living a healthy life in Wales, getting plenty of exercise everyday in the sports center and walking in the hills: no cigarettes  
or beer! I have time to read, watch DVDs, and think.

Once again, thanks for taking me out on that nice trip to Tyniec.

I enjoyed my visits to the gallery, it is my favorite gallery in Krakow.

I will be back in Krakow 1st September, I hope we can have some interesting conversations  
and good food together.

Kind regards,


I continue to look for inspiration for my new series (surroundings).
Spring walks around my neighbourhood are fantastic.
