I lived in Belgium for four years. Belgium is the tiny neighbour between the Netherlands and France. It is part of the lowlands, mostly a swamp until these hardy people dug the sea out of their gardens. When I was working on this piece I was reminded that when women were gazing pensively out a window it meant that they were thinking about a man who had left or sinking into melancholy over a child who would never return.

Some men are beautiful… For a while. It is a kind of mix of boyishness and a young woman. If you see pics of Rudolf Valentino, you can see it. And early pictures of Jim Morrison (of the Doors – before he started drinking). Orlando Bloom in Lord of the Rings and Troy. I think it may be where the idea of a Prince Charming comes from.  They are not physically threatening. And yet they are appealing.
