“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

That's George Grainger Aldridge's ear rising above the horizon of his busy head. It continually confounds me to see what that tireless brain conjures. 

It listens as well as watches.

He just sent me this snap of his his latest sculpture: God Is With You:

... taking a malt break in the studio:

... and one of his precious crayon boxes:

God is with you by George, other photos by Philip White
