Whipped Cream, a Cherry on Top and a Statue

Standard

We did a short visit to London, I hadn’t been in for about 2 years due to covid.

Even in rain London is always magnificent.

We passed Trafalgar Square to see what is on the 4th plinth. Every so often there is a new sculpture on it.

I loved the this one, whipped cream and a cherry on top – with a fly and a drone which transmits a life feed of Trafalgar Square – here.

Heather Phillipson’s vast physical and digital sculpture tops the Fourth Plinth with a giant swirl of whipped cream, a cherry, a fly and a drone that transmits a live feed of Trafalgar Square. Entitled THE END it suggests both exuberance and unease, responding to Trafalgar Square as a site of celebration and protest, that is shared with other forms of life. The live feed of Trafalgar Square picked up by the drone’s camera is visible on a dedicated website www.theend.today giving a sculpture’s eye perspective. 


I met Gene Kelly, one of my Tap heroes, in Leicester Square.

Dancing in the Rain.

… and of course I danced with him – what a privilege.


We walked to the station via Soho with the ever present Chinese cooking smells, I love.

We enjoyed it thoroughly.

My new adventure

Standard

Learn something new they say.

It is never too late to learn something new.

Since I was younger I was always fascinated by the Double Bass.

When I saw it in an orchestra or just in a small Jazz band I wanted to have a try myself on picking.

This dream has finally come true with the help of my sister.

I have a Double Bass on hire for a while at home and I am learning the notes and scales.

 
Learn something new.
Try something different.
Convince yourself that you have no limits.

Norwich Break – back in the cyber world

Standard

Norwich is a very old city in Norfolk with a beautiful Cathedral, a castle and a lovely towncentre with a market.

We had a house close to the citycentre to our disposal and discovered Norwich by foot daily.

We found a beautiful little garden ‘Plantation Garden‘ also called the Secret garden which was built at the site of a Chalk Quarry. Henry Trevor shaped the garden in 1855. It is an oasis for tranquility, we loved it every day!

Norwich Cathedral

In the Cathedral there was Dippy, the famous skeleton of the Diplodocus which is usually in London in the Natural History Museum. He is on tour and currently in Norwich.

It was very impressive.

Norwich has plenty of churches, we discovered though that many are not for worship. We found an art centre in a church, a bookshop with coffee shop and one was full of antiques for sale.

Norwich is a University city too, the – some cobbled- streets a lovely, the market beautiful and the little narrow lanes in between have old houses with quirky shops.

We have been in Norwich before (2017) and saw the Castle , blog post here


We bought some plants as a souvenir for the garden.
Let us find magic in all the little things in life. 

A Quick Break

Standard

….. a break with no internet …

That is what is on the agenda, after having worked rather hard lately.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to look at all posts, I will try on my phone though. 

I will be back in the cyber world soon  🙂

with a report of how much nothing I have done.

 

 

In the meantime I am hugging you all!

Declutter today

Standard

It is important that you declutter your home as we all know we keep too much.

Make space for the important things in your life.

Make space for things you really love and give you joy in life.

Decluttering emotionally is equally important.

Have enough space for the really important feelings and beliefs.

Why not have a go today to get rid of negative beliefs,

negative thoughts and emotions.

Start fresh every day with positive thoughts and beliefs.

♥Have a wonderfully, positive day! ♥

Never give up – like Nature

Standard

I was walking through a forest with trees fallen down.

Yet still more growth comes through the trunk which lies on the forest ground.

It reminded me that

Nature never gives up.

new beginnings

Every day is a new beginning.

Take a deep breath, smile

and start again.

If you don't give up on something
you truly believe in,
you will find a way.
Roy T. Bennett
You should never give up.
No matter how hard the situation is,
always believe that
something beautiful is going
to happen.

If you are in a situation like that at the moment,

please know that you are not alone and you are precious and loved.

My best wishes for you

and may the rise for you soon again.

It is getting warmer

Standard

After a cold May with rain, hail, storms and the odd ray of sunshine

the weather realises that is is nearly June and needs to be warmer.

For the last 2 days it has been warmer and

flowers, bushes all really start to bloom.

I love it.

Lilac is in full bloom and smelling amazing.

These are my amazing finds during a walk in a park.

Can you smell that amazing Lilac?

The earth laughs in flowers
