Let England Shake!
The title of PJ Harvey’s album seems apt. We were driving down to the West Country for some time out, and the news broke that Brexit had won the vote, n the referendum. A feeling of impending doom took over me. This year has been varied and interesting. I have posted some of my best blogs.
I decided to post the best blogs of 2016. Hope you enjoy.
FEBRUARY 2016– ‘STATES OF MIND-
Here I looked at Lack of social housing in particular in London, I joined an old friend walking from Kennington to Downing . I’m not normally up for marching and protesting. Got some great pictures. States of Mind
APRIL 2016 A WEEKEND with the UK Explorers’ taking time out to meet a new group. I have eventually joined another walking group and went off for a weekend . Peak District Weekend
The Eden Project
I would like to dedicate this post to my friend from Cornwall.
Keith Richards who passed away unexpectedly w/end of July 28th 2017. The last time I saw him was at this gig. !
PJ HARVEY at The Eden Project
I met Keith in London in the early 80’s both of us were on some Government Back to Work Scheme; we became friends as we had a shared interest in bands like The Fall and The Damned! He had a good sense of humour & an appreciation of the ‘Dark Side’, When he moved back to Cornwall he kindly put me up on my many visits. He gave me the opportunity to really get to know Cornwall. Keith was a real fun guy unfortunately Chron’s disease finally got him. RIP Keith.
Let England Shake After all the tension pre Brexit, we got a great polished performance from PJ Harvey.
I’m going to NYC in September and haven’t visited there since 1986, at that time I stayed in Harlem for a month,the hostel cost me $3 a night, it was the best time ever I loved it.
This time I’m sharing the experience & staying at The Jane near the ‘meatpacking’ industry and I’m prepared to have my eyes opened again. I will be doing a lot of walking.
NYC should be a good jumping off point in terms of looking at the bigger picture and making long sought after changes.
keep on keeping on.
