Introducing Robin Small 

His future lay unbound….Although inspired by the Super Hero of ancient times, Robin Hood, Robin Small is not the crusading sort, he’s more of an outsider who is simply heroic in his own time. He is apprehensive within the modern world, yet stands firmly in his vulnerability. He is wise and brave in his own life and journey – and the steps he takes towards a future of his own making.

October 20, 2014 - Robin Small Stands Alone


robin small hands


Robin Small was unbearably awkward in pubic and so began the battle of – what to do with hands .

Footnote:  Robin Small’s quietness and how he seems to stand so lightly on the page, might suggest his sensitivity and discomfort within the world around him.  His awkwardness and self consciousness that can feel unbearable and overwhelming to him for a lot, or even most, of the time.  Along with the uncertain prospect of new things ahead – out there.

Not everyone sits comfortably in the world or in social situations.   Which isn’t a weakness.  Simply a difference.  It’s brave to explore where you feel you ‘fit’ in the world – and not deviate under the pressure to ‘fit in’.  Robin Small stands deep in thought here – about what we can only wonder…

October 19, 2014 - Robin Small – Wearing The Hurts

‘Robin Small wandered wide in avoidance of – all things hard to touch.’

Personal footnote:  The initial thread of Robin’s story ‘avoidance of all things hard to touch’, might elude to the trouble he has getting close, or being close with others.  Touching – or being touched.  Feeling the pain of loss or disappointment.  His avoidance of feeling things at all?  Maybe Robin Small finds it difficult to connect with things deep within himself too?   But maybe he’s also contemplating taking a small step towards trusting again – taking a risk?

July 25, 2013 - Robin Small Answers


robin small answers


Robin Small struggled to find what seemed so forever elusive – the answer .

Footnote:  Robin seems to hold a flag for the sense of wonder and mystery that was more afforded in years gone by, than in our world today.   Answers don’t always come easy, and sometimes there aren’t answers to everything.  But Robin, although struggling, doesn’t seem (entirely) defeated by the struggle.  Or the elusiveness of answers.  He’s tentative?  Undecided?  Maybe ready to step or move?  And those new paths often open up from not giving up when there seems no answer, but by having the determination to keeping seeking and exploring and examining what doesn’t make sense.   Responding in your own way to whatever uncertainty arises and whatever struggle arising from it.  Or maybe Robin’s message is entirely different?

July 3, 2013 - Robin Small Wells

As choices lay before him, Robin whirled in the – well, well, well.

Footnote:  Robin appears to be in a zone of great uncertainty – and cautiousness.   He could be anticipating the next step?    The ‘well, well, well’ could suggest he’s weary of  a big finger waiving in disapproval – pointing out he is wrong perhaps?  Or maybe the ‘well, well, well’ relates to a discovery he has made?

May 3, 2013 - Robin Small Rocks

robin small rocks


Robin Small felt the turmoil on indecision in the balls of his feet as he rocked to – Will I?  Won’t I?

Footnote:  Sometimes when there are no answers, sitting it out for a while and taking some time makes good sense.   And sometimes things  never make sense but Robin’s ‘rocking’ seems to suggest he’s not stuck.  He’s working things out – in his own time.  Maybe he’s just wondering?  And wondering (or daydreaming) is so often perceived as ‘doing nothing’.  Nothing of value anyway.  But it’s where ideas come from isn’t it?   It’s how we gain a deeper sense of things and their meaning –  that others might just pass on by.  Or maybe this Robin means something entirely different?
