Oh Mary II days on our ship...Oh daddy, the officer whispered, "May I say my name"...I think it was Harald, darn..sweet cheeks of his.

The Crown

I encountered a strange omen over this crown which is made of from shards of glass, Christmas wrapping paper, mother of pearl buttons and cardboard. I could not understand my difficulty how it was to be displayed, and the power it possessed seems to be at its will. Blood at the head kept coming to mind. Then it came to me, what is missing was a rod which the shell of the crown hung.

To answer your question, I have never considered writing a play, perhaps its part of my blue blood. I had planned on using the Chinee ice ring before you asked, I had photographed it two weeks before. Any inanimate object can come to life once you put your heart into it. These works are just that. The Queens studies were complex, I had done many, some worked while others failed. These was faced with a parody which was not necessary. The more I tried, the further it went into the past, the pieces looked Elizabethan with the nuances that seemed regal. Forgoing this, here is the Queen at her best.
