Sunday 29th March



Back in Mother Essex I miss the tour already, the team around us,
the venues, the house crews, caterers, traffic cones, debris,
the signature sounds & the charismatic odours of the cities we visited,
the buses that were our home-from-homes, the fresh towels 7 the shower
stalls we scrubbed in every morning behind stage & the trucks that
were loaded-unloaded every day, carrying our heavy metals as delicately
as hens eggs. I miss mapping unfamiliar streets, scraping words,
snapping sight-specific works off pavements,
notebook & camera, notebook & camera, capturing the cracks, the marks,
the beautiful dirt you left for me to find. The energy that’s gone
into this run of shows was enormous, made good people ill & yet
produced results that gave thousands of people happiness & left me
with one clear thought, that, of all tours that I have ever been on
this one was my favourite.
