Elephant: The first hurdle

The hardest part of my day is saying goodbye to bed – forcing my body out of the sheets and into another day. Once I hit the ground, things move with relative ease – but this first moment, when the alarm clock gods are mocking, is often a tough obstacle to overcome.

And so the same theory can be applied to the beginning of my elephant project – a venture of observation into the life of a person that offers sex for financial advance.

My proposed collaboration with Mainliners fell through due to internal funding issues within the organisation. THis brought a few days of lull and repeated questions as to whether I could progress with this idea. At times like this good friends become important (many thanks to Sam S, Max and Ant), and I managed to dip into an energy reserve that often alludes in times of need.

And so last night, Mr Wallace and I hunted around the Elephant for some ideas, and upon gathering some numbers from a newsagents window, I began to call up ‘Juicy Lucy’ and an assortment of others promising exciting things for crisp sterling. 

The expectation was an empty phone as soon as I mentioned photographer – but to my surprise I managed to keep some people on the phone. The most promising is a lady called ‘Cammie’, who is willing to meet on monday at a location TBC. This result followed 10 minutes of complete honesty, as I outlined what I wanted to do and that I would not be able to pay. Although it may not amount to anything, a start has been made, the first hurdle cleared.

Until monday then, high hopes, head up.
