Much of my work as Ina is really about head space. I have never spent much time actually considering what life would be like if I got whatever it is I purport to want. Given the lack of likelihood of me ever achieving aims, particularly during the last few years, life has become a rather tragic comedy.
I see this in other people, even people who have got whatever they thought they wanted. It almost looks as if disappointment is a natural life process, so prevalent is the sense of aging doom.
So to further this concept of there being no glass wall – that even people in public office need to be considered ‘fit for work,’ rather than authority figures who are there to be criticised and abused according to circumstance and the whims of the bun-throwing backseat voting public, I have decided to create a dialogue with Boris in the form of interpretive dance.
I will be doing this whilst writing up Lucifer Ogilvie, and naturally I will be Ina Disguise.
In this way, not only will I amuse Boris, who can enjoy it instead of the daily snifter, as a preference, I can inspire some thoughtless so-called adults who have been herded into a life of embittered misery and believe that it is natural to lose your spirits/health as you get older. It is not.
The artwork for Boris is not currently up for sale as I am still working on it and I am not satisfied with my current channels. If anyone was interested in it, I am sure I could have a chat with you, but I don’t do this work with financial aims at the moment. I would rather get to the point of meeting an actual publisher at some point and settling down to some more serious work.
Naturally, since even a casual skimming would reveal that I have had a particularly nasty year and am about to have another one, I am not feeling particularly great in real terms. The only good part really is that Boris is far less concerned about image than Wolfe was, so I feel a bit more liberated in terms of what I can and cannot do. Emotional investments are not very convenient when it comes to this kind of work.
The video project will probably commence in the spring, until then I will be undergoing some preparation work and trying to balance at least two full time jobs. Ina Disguise is Fit for Work.
