Hope and I went to London today to see
at The Royal Academy.
Oh, I loved this exhibition so much!
Cornell was such a complex character
who amassed a vast knowledge of the world and yet rarely
left New York State - even when given the opportunity
to travel to Europe, which had been a dream of his.
He felt that his creativity stemmed from the longing to travel
rather than from the actual visit.
I was amazed by his imagination and style
and how he was ahead of his time.
I am now inspired to create boxes in the style of Cornell!
We wandered to Covent Garden to see the
installation 'Heartbeat' by Charles Petillon.
Strangely calming and peaceful in an area of noise,
hustle and bustle,
the white balloons are really rather beautiful.

Such a lovely day.
I've got a busy day tomorrow making the final
University arrangements for Luke.
Grant and I will be driving him to Plymouth
on Friday, we'll stay in a hotel over night, and
then get him settled into his shared student flat
on Saturday morning.
I know this is going to be a very emotional time
for me. I'm so excited for him but I'll miss him dreadfully.
Ok, maybe I won't miss the chaos and never ending piles
of washing that seem to come with him!
