Murals at home

Em Riem's distinctive mural
I popped into Nick Sells' home today, aka Kampuchea Party Republic and the So Shoot Me Studio, and couldn't miss his wall murals by Em Riem and another collaboration by Peap Tarr and Lisa Mam. Very smart and a great addition to anyone's white-washed walls. I might have an open house session to brighten up my apartment walls in the future.
The reason to visit Nick's home was a medical emergency for my closest friend. It quickly brought home to me how little I know about first-aid or anything medical, having never been taught a jot at school and never bothered to find out more as an adult. I've broken my legs, arms, dislocated both shoulders, suffered concussion at football, and yet I know nowt. I've always said learning to swim and the basics of first-aid should be taught at schools as part of the curriculum, yet I've done bugger all to educate myself, especially as far as being slightly better prepared than a headless chicken in a medical emergency. Watching my closest friend in a deep sleep/coma quickly brought it home to me. It's never too late in life to learn.
