I’m part of a group exhibition opening at the Fine Art Library – do come! There is a mix of photographers using alternative and traditional processing methods. Opening 6pm Tuesday evening. The Fine Art Library is worth visiting in itself tucked into the eaves of the Central Library like a nest of books.
This really sweet mini garden around the post box in South Ockendon is a little bit of public spirited civic improvement by a local person which I snapped back in June.
Today I got a letter ! a proper hand written letter!. It was lovely to sit and read it over a coffee before went out to gather more supplies for the dinner tomorrow. Again I’m reminded that the ‘real’ the analogue and the made are so much better than then click of a mouse or a ‘like’.
I’d like to invite the world to dinner!
(well, 18 of the world – as that’s the number of plates I have!)
Inspired by Jim Haynes Parisian Sunday Dinners, and my Great Aunt Mary Fraser Dott running a literary salon in Edinburgh in the 1940’s I want to bring people together over food.
I’m inviting people to come to dinner in Leith. This is an opportunity to have great food, converse in person (not on facebook!) and make new connections and find new perspectives.
Food is sourced locally from farmers market and has vegetarian and meaty options.
Please email me Mary Gordon at firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place (Free!) and get more info.
