Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

The British library

Outside the British Library is this sculpture of Newton by Paolozzi.



Below the sculpture was this plaque which I didn't understand.




The plaque reads NEWTON after William Blake by Eduardo Paolozzi.

Why the reference to Wiiliam Blake? Then last week I visited the Tate Britain art gallery and the mystery was solved. There I saw this watercolour and ink print by William Blake
