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!

Shooting Star

As part of the London Design Festival last month, British sculptor Alex Chinneck designed this upside down electricity pylon.










It was made specifically for this site on the Greenwich Peninsula because of its connection with an industrial past and  the modern Canary Wharf buildings as a back drop


A bullett from a shooting star contains 450 pieces of stell with over 1000 engineered connection points.
