The artist

I am  artist, writer and social worker. In times past I have been (in no particular order) archaeologist, typographer, letterpress printer, stonemason and Fleet Street journalist (Financial Times of London).

Evening News front page from 21 July 1969 announcing first men on the Moon.

Evening News front page from 21 July 1969 announcing first landing on the Moon.

I was 12 when the first foot was impressed in the surface of the Moon, though one of my regrets is I was not among that huge television audience who watched those grainy and ghostly images of Armstrong as he descended the ladder from Eagle. However, one of my prized possessions is a copy of the London Evening News dated Monday, 21 July 1969, headlined: A LAND WHERE ROCKS BOUNCE LIKE RUBBER. (The journalist in me wonders who dreamed that up, and why.)

This blog is about using our imagination to go where we would love to go and where we cannot except through imagination.
