Cooped up

This is the latest blog entry to be converted into an animation, based on Fettered.

I wrote this during a train journey, returning from London to Leeds. A number of railway metaphors seeped in, as the feeling of being cooped up in the carriage reminded me of similar emotions during cancer treatment.

This is your life (the animation)

I have begun a new project, taking some of my blog entries and turning them into animations. This is the first, based on Retreat.

When I'd finished it and watched it through, I had an uncanny moment where I almost expected Eamonn Andrews to come in with a red book and say "Harry Caper, this is your life!"

It is strange to think that I wrote Retreat over two years ago, about events that had happened two years earlier than that. It highlights to me just how far I've come since then, and yet serves to remind me how immediate and powerful those emotions still are.
