Why Artwhacked?

When my elder son was little, he loved a kids' TV programme called "Art Attack".  In toddler-speak, that became "Artwhack". Ever since then, it's become the family word for how you feel when something creative - a song, a film, a book, a painting - has had a major effect on you.  You're "artwhacked".

This will come and go.  I'm not a diarist, and I like to express myself through making art which I hope will whack others in its turn.  But sometimes I just want to write a reaction or an appreciation of something, just for its own sake - and that's what this blog is for.  Hope those who read will also enjoy.
