If you’re dotty, you’re a mad thing. If you’re a lake, you’re calm. I’m Dotty Lake. I’m both. I’m madly calm. I can be one, I can be the other or I’m somewhere in between. I’m torn between two worlds.
I get my wild streak from my mum. She’s an artist, pretty famous for her bonkers creations. She calls herself a modern artist. She does installations. My dad is the calm one. He’s a lawyer. He solves things through diligence, he says. Due diligence he calls it. Get your head down, put the work in and you’ll get there. Whereas Mum’s wild and free. She works hard, yes, sometimes so hard you don’t see her for days on end. She says she works by spilligence, which is a word she made up, a word which means the opposite of getting your head down. It means getting your head up.
I don’t really know who I am yet.
