Magnolia,Train Journey Home and Memories of Babel

11 May

1    Saw this last magnolia blossom in North Finchley on our way to Woodside Park tube station.


2   The sun shone all the way home lighting up the amazingly yellow fields. The sheep and lambs seemed pleased to be drying out and I had four hours reading time! Almost finished ‘Restless’ by William Boyd.

3   Babel was a surreal and amazing experience! It was promenade theatre where we walked through the tree lined paths of Caledonian Park – along which were individuals living their individual lives, playing the piano, peeling vegetables, knitting, typing – into the open space in front of the very beautiful Clock Tower built in 1855. In this space, tramping through chocolate thick mud, the people came together to build their city. There was music and fire and story telling. Very few photos worked  (no flash allowed) but here’s a taster:

Beautiful paper models, two of many

I don’t want to tell you more at this point -I want you to go and see it if you can and I don’t want to spoil it for you!
