Using two mirrors to get more interesting angles.


No specs.

Jean-Michel Jarre at the Brighton Centre.  Amazing light spectacle but the audience seemed strangely unresponsive.  Really this show was about drawing and painting using light.  The music was secondary (and dated).  I wasn’t the only person to notice how flat things were.  Thomas H Green. writing a review for noticed too.   Maybe this sort of spectacle needs to be released into the wild – it’s better suited to music festivals.


Messing around with watercolours.

Brilliant weekend of Geology on the Dorset/Devon coast with the Geological Association.


The dark clays to the left of the photograph are Gault clays, The light rock to the right is Rhaetic-Lower Jurassic. This boundary is unconformable and 100 million years of sediments are missing. It is thought that 60 million years of deposition occured and for the next 40 million years these sediments were worn away.

No spectacles,. This is the way to go. It stops unnecessary fiddling.

I have a dental abscess.  Why are my teeth dying before the rest of my body?

Just went to see Kubo and the Two Strings at the cinema.  What an enchanting story!  Usual storyline of good v evil.  Humans = good, nature = bad.  Outstanding animation (I’m usually not very keen on animation).  Different voice overs for the characters would have been better IMHO.  Wendy Ide writes a very favorable review for the Observer newspaper.

Finished reading Eric Gill by Fiona McCarthy.   Gill is a self-confessed paedophile. He might have been a genius but this is no excuse for his reprehensible behaviour. Close down his museum & write him out of the history books! Horrid little wierdo.  Fiona McCarthy writing about Gill for the Guardian newspaper.
