More Art please

I am at my parent's place trying to do some watercolours on a miniscule work desk obviously made for a child. The desk is stuffed with bits and pieces of my various pasts and I have discovered a postcard...Back in 2005 I went on a solitary working holiday to St. Michael's printshop in St. John's Newfoundland. I was sad and trying to repair a bleeding heart. It was just what I needed, a trip steeped in fortitudes. I took my mother's fiddle and printing supplies and set to work. At the printshop I met Tom Hammick, what a great artistperson! He ended up writing me the most amazing letter of recommendation and I was accepted into Camberwell's awesome MFA print programme. I didn't go because I ended up being offered a sweet deal at Concordia in Montreal. And here is the postcard that has triggered my nostalgic remembrances.
