This is a memo that I will be quiet for a while, and includes some slides I haven't as yet used in a cartoon.

  1. 1. I’m taking a short break, but have a look at this:-
  2. 2. <ul><li>(This is a message </li></ul><ul><li>for summer 2010) </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>I’m using some time to write up the history of our digital art group here in Sussex, England. </li></ul><ul><li>The group’s been going for four years or so. We’re a self help get-together, we are mainly based in the mental health community, and we’ve had maybe a dozen people at our group over the time. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Also I’m going to write up the history to date of a committee who have been arranging music events in the mental health world in Sussex since 2008. </li></ul><ul><li>It will be good to get things down in print while memories are still fresh. We’ve organised maybe 15 or so events in the time. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>So what’s the purpose of this diarising? The main hoped-for outcome is that it will assist in the establishment of a social enterprise to provide art and creativity in this part of the South-East of England. A social enterprise is half way between a hard nosed business and a charity. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Another thing is that my therapist has said it might be a good idea to write something about my life history, which she says is unusual. For me, it would go to help give those I know an understanding of where I am at. I’ve done something similar by describing some psychotic episodes in a book published by Chipmunka entitled </li></ul><ul><li>‘ The Durham Light and other stories’ </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>So this will not only take some time, it will need a focus. I have accumulated a number of slides for cartoons that I have not gotten round to using and I’ve put some of them together at the end of this text. I fully intend to come back to complete some embryonic ideas, such as ‘The Road Gang’ </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>I intend to have a break from writing sometime in the late summer, and I will give myself some variety by posting another slide show onto slideShare then. That offering will be a text and visual version of a talk I have given a few times to Mental Health First Aid, an initiative in London. It’s about what has worked for me in mental health and what hasn’t </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>So right now, here are a few connected slide show anecdotes that I haven’t found a use for as yet in my cartoons </li></ul>
  10. 23. <ul><li>Cheers and best wishes, </li></ul><ul><li>Andrew Voyce MA </li></ul>
