‘Planet Earth’ . . .  Watercolour – WHB – 1956


An Attempted Discourse

You do annoy me at times

And why is that?

Because I think you are losing touch with reality

What makes you think that?

Because the things you do and say do not make sense

To you, maybe, but then I don’t think you are living in the real world yourself

What do you mean ‘the real world’?


Is that where you live then?

Well, it’s much more real than yours

How do you know that?

Because I use my reason and all my senses.  You don’t.

And how do you know that I don’t?

Because what you do does not make sense

But that’s what I just said to you

Well, I’m saying it now – to you.

But you can’t do that – I started this argument

What argument?

The one we’re having now

No, we aren’t

You see – that’s just what I mean.  You are not being real

Well, I think I am

I just don’t think so

Well, you’d be wrong

Why should you be right and me wrong?

Because you aren’t living in the real world.

Oh . . .   Get real!

  1. Hi Bill

    I like your unusual watercolour Planet Earth. I notice it was dated 1956, so I suppose it may be one of your early Marjon artworks. If so, I wonder what your art tutor (Mr Roberts?) had asked you to do.

    No interesting news to report here at the moment. Hope all is well at your end.

    Best wishes, Des
