Only just starting my reading for the day. I'm 'enjoying' Angelou's 'I know why the caged bird sings' - I say enjoying in quotation marks because what she's writing about is incredibly harrowing in places but it's so powerful and written in a way that it feels like I'm right there.
The reason I'm only just settling down to read is because I was having a great evening at IKON Gallery's "Foot In The Door" event tonight, learning about all the roles and opportunities available in the gallery and the arts sector more widely. All the staff are so lovely, and they come from all sorts of life and career backgrounds. Their love of their work and the gallery just exudes from them, and it's definitely motivated me to start applying for various roles. I can definitely see myself there (and in similar settings). For tonight though, back to my book.
Have a wonderful evening everyone!
