"A tall thin old man comes backwards slowly and carefully through the glass door, carrying a metal stepladder in one hand, and in the other a small pot of paint and a small brush. With an air of methodical tidiness, he leans the stepladder against the front of a left-hand stall, stands the pot of paint next to it, places the small brush sideways across the exact centre of the top of the pot."
The fifth part of a hyperfiction based on visits to churches in the City of London. Part 5 takes in the following:
St Andrew Holborn
Christchurch, Newgate Street
St Vedast-alias-Foster
St Anne and St Agnes

And, Chapters 41-52 (Conclusion)


Dates:
Tue Sep 20, 2011 19:05 - Thu Oct 20, 2011

The elements of the dinner-parties which Mrs Lennox gave, were beauty, men, and pedantic conversation. They talked in a sensuous way outside, lashed themselves when they were alone, and squandered their capabilities in the drawing-room."
Concluding the abridged version of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South - abridged on the principle of leaving out all the important bits. Margaret spends some time in Cromer. Dixon is either dead or blue. We finally learn what happened to Frederick; Mr Thornton is in difficulties; and his mother has had wind.

"They heard Dixon's foot. A stern thought compressed her brows, and set her teeth. It was Dixon's measured tread. They heard her walk."

Continuing the abridged version of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South - abridged on the principle of leaving out all the important bits. The sinister Dixon may or may not be dead. The long-awaited Frederick arrives at last, only to be no more spoken of. Margaret fancies porters.

Black or White (the gravy version)


Dates:
Mon Nov 22, 2010 00:00 - Mon Nov 22, 2010

Just for fun - Michael Jackson's "Black or White" re-written as a song about gravy. Pretty funky, albeit rather out of tune in places. Made with the help of my daughter Rachel, otherwise known (on YouTube) was HoolaHoopKid, who provides some slick
dance moves via her toy orang-utan, Sweethart. You can view it on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abGk2-T6_wI , or on my site at http://www.edwardpicot.com/blackorwhite.mov .
