They Sleep We Live
I think the title and the face says it all!! ‘They sleep we live’ is a mantra I’ve repeated to myself from time to time. Despite his pretend sad face you can see his smiling eyes emitting their intensive glare. There’s even a small bluebird of happiness in shot. What more could you want?

Love don’t live here anymore
So there I was minding my own business and quietly walking down the street when I see an abandoned mattress laying against the park railings. I’m sure it’s not the same for everyone but I have always had a compulsion to write ‘Love don’t live here anymore’ on an abandoned mattress. It just seems so fitting. Abandoned mattresses aren’t the most common item of street furniture but whenever I’ve seen them they are either nowhere near home or I don’t have any paint on me. Until today.
As this was being discussed with the other half of id-iom we came up with the notion that this one is too obvious and must have been done before elsewhere. A quick internet search hasn’t revealed anything but I think I came up with it myself and i’m sticking to that. It is possible however that I have just subconsciously stolen the idea and then passed it off in my brain as my own. Who knows?
