APPARENTLY I AM WEIRD / 26 August 2008

Yesterday I had very long-term friend say to me, 'Dolly, you have the strangest brain of anyone I have ever met. You must tell the readers of your blog about your freedom pass art intervention." Well, readers, you no doubt have realised my strangeness by now, but what my friend was talking about was this: In London, the disabled travel pass comes in a nice bright orange pass holder, and I got to think there are some people who deserved a pass but didn't get one. So I made one for Frida Kahlo, Vincent Van Gogh and Virginia Wolfe, then I handed them into London Transport's Lost Property dept. You never know, they might get reclaimed!
