Every morning (when the sun is shining), the light bounces off the building opposite and fills our studio with sunlight.
Ticked off 2 quite interesting places on Sunday. Gaping Gill (Ghyll) is a 98 metre pothole, and once a year the local pothole society erect a crane and metal seat and lower people down. By the time we arrived at midday the waiting time was 6 hours and they had to stop selling tickets. There were a lot of disappointed faces.
We consoled ourselves with a tour of Ingleborough cave where I met one of the best tour guides ever.
It's hard to describe his mannerisms and one liners and to do it the justice it deserves. I really recommend the tour if you ever visit this part of the world, both for his character and the beauty beneath the ground.
I had a brilliant weekend in Yorkshire. They always seem to have something going on in town when I visit. This weekend was Canal Carnival.
I'll be at Bond Street Coffee in Brighton on the 28th of August between 8:30-10:30am if you fancy a chat about some of this.
I've been hosting this thing called Atoms Collide for the past 10 months. I set it up because I missed some of good things about hosting Likemind a few years previous. Those good things were the informal chats about projects, ideas and worries. The thing I didn't want was the peacocking, name dropping and the business cards, the pretence of our expertise in our chosen area.
The thing I wanted the most was a more human and honest thing where people could come and chat to me and others about their fears, battles and tribulations with the business of making things happen. I hoped that somewhere in those discussions and listening, ideas might emerge.
I reckon I can't be the only person who needs this kind of thing.
