Sally Kindberg and the New Year

2024 started with a bit of a drama.  Laryngitis turned into a rather vile throat infection (epiglottitis) which meant I couldn’t breathe/swallow/speak.  After a difficult night I managed to get to A&E early in the morning – can’t remember how … Continue reading

Sally Kindberg and more notes for Stranger, a graphic work in progress

 Early events were disturbing: gaslighting, mysterious letters, a bit of levitation, the occasional exorcism.  And a missing father.  Later, after happier times, when the person you trust the most says ‘I’m not who you think I am’, you start asking … Continue reading
