So much to learn …

April 16, 2019

As my going to university gets closer so my mood ricochets; like a ride on a switch back; sounds nice, believe me, it ain’t.  I have the tablets and tools to cope with both extremes. Even, while the pain in either state is hardly distinguishable at first, I usually settle first with a cup of tea.  Not always good in the long-term but, good on the short when I can find a book or article that will blind me with science or, make me pour another cup of tea which always a good thing.

A book I enjoyed this week was called Double Harness by Robin Tanner.  While, it tells me the story of a schools Inspector and an etcher and illustrator during the early 20th century; it gives me a sound overview of the arts and crafts movement in the West Country.  I have a heap of influential names that I can dine out with for a while; those like Ernest Gimson, Hans Coper, Lucie Rie, Phyliss Barron and Dorothy Larcher.  Who knows who will turn up and some etchings; glad I made the right calculated choice next time might not happen that way?
