Notes from Bath Spa, UK

Now we're in Bath Spa, the elegant Georgian city on the banks of the River Avon and the Avon canal. We're here for a conference about writing and mixed media art in the digital realm, at which I am presenting about The Lucerne Project, and at which Patty and I are running a joint workshop (together, not one where people smoke joints).

But even in this museum-like city, the old and the new jostle against each other. In the hallway of the hotel, outside our room, is this Blue Plaque:


And then in the main shopping street, we saw two young people doing some street-hip-hop-jazz, and very good they were at it, too:


Ladies and gentlemen, once again I give you: MODERN BRITAIN!

  1. As an encouraging mum, if I can say so myself, I had a nice time recently with my two kids to decorate their room in our new house that we just moved into. There were lots of the children's art work, made at home and school, that we happily put on the wall.
    Then we spent time together sitting in front of the iMac and looked through the big collection of digital images that wahooart.com had for their customers to select from and have printed as canvas prints. The kids together chose this painting for their room, Ivan Horse by Edmund Dulac, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LHRV2, that we ordered online to have delivered to our new house.
