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!

Posters

 Last week I visited the Transport Museum in Covent Garden as I wanted to see a couple of poster exhibitions. This first exhibition is about two of my favourite London icons - the Underground and the River Thames.

  4. A very interesting assortment. I imagine some of these match up with the tube stations you have visited.

  8. Nice post. There was a style of posters that were used to advertise railway trips to places like The Lakes and such like that I always liked.

  11. Very interesting and so much detail that you would only really understand with a fair bit of historical knowledge I think.

  12. The gatherers of all this important information deserve a prize. What an incredible journey the River Thames takes and how important to all life wherever it flows.

  16. Anything that inspires to art is important to me:) Really enjoyed you taking us on your trip through the exhibit!
    Which leads me to the following thought. I just launched "Weekend Journal Page" on Dec. 8, and it is about the process of making anything in art. a possibility I mentioned in the post of Dec. 1 is "following another artist."
    Am leaving the post of December 8 open for people to leave their perma link in their comment to that post (a method very regularly used in wordpress for a meme/challenge).
    The Friday post of Dec. 8 you can recognize by a view with purplish wisteria in the header, and it's titled Weekend Journal Page, Dec. 8, 2017.
    It would be great if you could leave your perma link in a comment in that post. The comment section is below the post -keep scrolling down till you see a navy blue part.
    If you wonder how to do it, let me know, and I'll take you through it!
