The whole kit and caboodle

This is the collection I will be taking on holidays with me
i have tried very hard to keep it down to a dull roar
Their is a part of me that wishes to wing it
and just see what I find when I get there
But the bit of me that says I must take stuff
is winning
Besides I wont be taking my computer
so I surely need all of these little treasures
plus what I find over there
See you on the other side

dont you find that winnowing down to bare arty essentials is harder than working out what clothes to pack? (or maybe its just me!)

trace, enjoy paradise and explore and enjoy some more. well earned time out of time, i'm thinkin'.

Don't worry Lynda all sharps will be concealed in my checked luggage.
And yes Ronnie clothes are easy esp when there is so much shopping on Bali. Art supplies I agonised over, I must admit I have now added a small tube of white goauche and a cotton rag. Thanks everyone for your well wishes. xte
