Oh Joy!

(Photo courtesy of the Melbourne Age)

I had to pinch myself.The day after I visited the Keith Haring wall in Collingwood,this appeared in the Melbourne Age. At the bottom of my photograph is a small access space with the hatch missing. This was stolen,over thirty years ago,within weeks of the mural being completed. Well, look what turned up in the post,just last week!!!!! Oh happy joy.
This is one of my favourite books, written in the days before the webs, when people still kept journals.His heartfelt observations on friendship,love,travel and art.

Thanks for that Link, MG. and thanks also, for your comment. The internet is tops and I'm sure Mr Haring would have loved it.

cheers and happy Sunday
