waiting for the man

Posted: April 28, 2015 by Mo Crow in It's Crow Time

bathroom-windowthe house and garden are as clean as they can get so now we’re just hanging around waiting for the man  from the real estate agency to do the routine house inspection (for the first time in 2 & 1/2 years) he should be here any minute
here’s the guardian angel in the garden
Old Man Crow having a first look through the freshly bound second draft of The illustrated lyrics of Old Man Crow

    I like the garden guardian.

  2. Carol says:

    Hoping he’s been by now and all is well. Great excuse for getting everything sparkling – I need a similar push. Love your garden guardian, perfect for gardeners such as you and Rod. Isn’t it such a delight to see Rod looking through the book? Can’t wait to see the end product.

      It does feels good having such a clean space, the real estate fellow was polite, sharp and respectful so x fingers we will be here for a good while yet, had lunch at Banks Thai to celebrate and unwind. Looking forward to seeing what our artist/editor friend Richard has to say about the second draft, will hand it over to him on Saturday, the year is rolling right along!

    the vibe you two put out would be enough reason to keep you on as tenants. You give the old lady love & an extension to her
    life……but a good spit & polish always feel good… what a wonderful reason to shout yourselves lunch……a clean house and a new book. Well done.

    Is it hard for old Man to believe? (A lifetime of lyrics, not the clean house)

    • Mo Crow says:

      it is, he couldn’t really look at the first draft for about a week, it was taking him back in time to when each song was written like a surreal crow version of ‘This is your life’ but he has his producer hat on now and picked up a typo straight away on the contents page!

    ooooooooooooooo. the blue, and the tracers of blue. i could stand there for hours. and just imagining how he feels, studying what represents a life time of music and love. such a gift. such a collaboration. such a wonder.

  6. deemallon says:

    Hi Mo. No wonder you liked my blue bottle tree! Hope your home will remain so for as long as you need… There is something thrilling about seeing all your work bound like that!

    • Mo Crow says:

      I love your bottle tree Dee! those blue dragon tears are by Eric of Dragonglass, we had some red ones too but they exploded on a dangerously hot day last century when the temperatures soared and the bathroom under the low tin roof was cooking it would have been close to 50˚C (122˚F) looking forward to binding the final draft in the fine black Italian glove leather I bought last month and then taking it to the printer to see what kind of magic we can make!

  7. So he’s been and gone. Visited the Old Lady in her finery, you too in your boots of leather. You’re all happy all round I guess . . . you and the angel have done your work well.

  8. handstories says:

    That’s great that you took a photo of him being with the book, imagining all of your crows looking back at him. LOVE your glowing blue in the window. Ha- I used the word “sloppy” to describe myself today (everyday). Regarding your last post on weather changes- yesterday it got to 79 here & today it’s 56 & rainy, it makes me dizzy.

  9. grace says:

    L O V E and love just all of this…love your life, your work, your happiness with your boots, your housekeeping, the beauty Full Man looking softly yet Care fully. All so Good and the goodness flows across to my own day here so farawaynearby. Thank you for Existing and finding Us

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Grace))) had to spend the day curled up with a good book yesterday to recover from all the cleaning & the invasion of privacy & the sadness about the death and destruction in Nepal

  10. Julie Banks says:

    Hope you have recovered, Mo! By the way, went to Glebe today to see the Tarkine exhibition and a lady I met in the Glass Artists’ Gallery asked to be remembered to you. Her name is Maureen Cahill. Small world, isn’t it? xxx

    • Mo Crow says:

      Maureen has given her life to glass & is one of the most passionate artists I have ever met, a great inspiration (but must say we clashed horns quite often back in the 80’s when she was head of the glass department at Sydney College of the Arts & I was a mature age student !)
