@Churchills Pontypridd art supplies closing down! This is such bad news. Even Cardiff doesn’t have such a good art supply shop as @Churchills! What can be done?
Thinking all day of the going on of a friend so long ago. Course its that aniversary thing!
Who is Liu Xia?
I live like a plant in the day
With no voice and no human interaction
Or like a corpse at night…
I curl into a ball
As somebody knocks at the door
My neck starts to stiffen
But I cannot leave…
I speak to myself too solitary
I have not the right to speak, to speak loudly!
I live like a plant
I lie like a corpse!
