The When I Wheel …….
I made this as a gift for my husband….. I found the ferris wheel in a lovely gift shop www.imiloa.co.uk ….and made all of the figures with pipe cleaners, apart from a couple of vintage characters that I picked up on etsy in the states.
In one of my children’s books ‘The Angel of the Seven Shards’ … I write about the ‘When I wheel’……..Time is a man- made monster and he steals slivers of humans that are left vulnerable as they wait for their life to begin … . ‘when I find the perfect man, house, job … etc … they become shadows of their former-selves … walk around never fully present …. easy bait for The Time Bearer – Monster of Time …..
His assassins ‘The Hours’ do the dirty work for him – they snatch layers of humans … place them on the ‘When I Wheel’ inside the Kingdom Of Time.
Round and round they go ….. the more of them they steal … the less of them remains on earth – until sometimes they disappear all together ….
Here my husband and I are jumping off the ‘When I Wheel’ and onto a boat headed for France with my cats and trunk of Ewa I Wallas …. www.ewaiwalla.se ….. and into a brand new life…. with no more ‘when I”s’ ………… and only ‘Nows’ …..
