Amara and I have been intending to have a fun creative evening for a while. The other night we wandered round digbeth, a few days too late for the City of Colours festival we still managed to
a lot of time running to and from the middle of the road looking like this:
I was particularly inspired by the piece ‘municipal megaliths’ and after being amazed at the stratigraphy of Liverpool station, I’m making it an aim to spot archaeology in everyday places, and take cool pictures by them:
Megaliths, for those who don’t know, are immense stone structures. lithic means rock add this onto the prefix: mega, and you get mega-rocks. There’s one everyone will know of called Stonehenge, and though we’re not completely sure what they will have been used for, they’re amazing to look at (or so I’m told) and fun to engage with even now. See this article about those who flock to Stonehenge this summer to see some amazing sun activity…
Then we sat in Starbucks (which I morally disagree with, but its the only cafe open 24hrs) where we laid our notebooks open in anticipation. It took a while for us to descend into silence and just write, but we got there in the end. On the train home, we chatted deep about the Sabbath, church experience and God. I hope to expand some of these thoughts in another post.
a little something from my everyday life,
