Life's been a bit more obtuse than it need have been recently … so I'm way behind and have been happily procrastinating … not helped with the Middle East developments.
I've been reading about Sergei Diaghilev (1872 - 1929) (Russian art critic, patron, ballet impresario and more)– which I found far more fascinating than I thought I would – and again those rabbit holes appeared!

Life's always interesting … the Turner Prize Exhibition is up and running at our amazing local Towner Art Gallery …
… contemporary art – which was mostly unfathomable - ?!, so I need to go back and quietly spend time working out what's what … yet oddly the first exhibitions Diaghilev put on in St Petersburg in the late 1890s were intended to introduce contemporary artists to the local public, and later, to the Europeans.

… while within the town Eastbourne ALIVE – is a separate ambitious project working with young cultural partners in and around the resort's landscape orbit …
|This is an excellent society|
in our town - very professional
... I need to explore. Obviously linked to the Turner Prize … we're awash with art around here … fortunately not washed away in the storms.
This was meant to be very short … but I obviously don't do that … rabbit holes abound …
I will catch up … boiler withstanding – that's been bad again – it'd be nice if things would behave!!
