What's Inspiring Me Right Now

I was recently in Bournemouth for a few hours, and made a flying visit to the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum. It's wonderful and amazing and I definitely need to make a return visit, but what I loved most about it was the building itself. It's a rather Gothic looking Edwardian building, with absolutely sumptuous decor.

The Forest Mermaid

I've realised that in all the time I've been using this name, I haven't properly explained what a forest mermaid is, or what it was supposed to mean. 

The Forest Mermaid came to me in the middle of the night. I was lying awake, worrying about the future, and trying to think what it was that "defined" me. "The Forest Mermaid" floated into my head, and although it didn't make sense at the time it seemed perfect. I drifted off to sleep, and by the time I woke the next morning, The Forest Mermaid was starting to make a lot of sense.
