Walk 5 - "A walk inscribes space in the same way that words inscribe text" (1)

"Consider Phlebas , who was once handsome and tall as you" 

The Wasteland, T.S. Eliot, iv Death by Water


Image following the pattern of the walk, researching Blue Plaques:



Walking using ropes as metaphors for memory... researching the philosophical,religious import, didactic feel of "Death by Water", no renewal, no regeneration....only the blue plaque memory.

Thank you to all who joined in and made the walk happen. It exceeded expectations!

Next walk, April 13th, hope to see you there.

Some photos and random thoughts:

The Winter Garden with its memories of Eric and Ernie


"Forgot the cry of gulls and the deep sea swell
And the profit and loss"




















"He passed the stages of his age and youth
Entering the whirlpool.
                                   Gentile or Jew"
