Barton in Fabis

July 26, 2009


First Impression of Nottingham gliding in by train from Newark Castle, Newark Northgate or Grantham after the obvious rural gap of east Notinghamshire took the form of Eastern City derelict factory facade. The former tunnel to Victoria plugged with concrete and no high speed Central Railway to London only an hour away.

Ironically Nottingham Town Hall will knock the only icon of it’s true self down, leaving an inner ring road like a race track and tramlines to nowhere.

East Midlands Parkway near Radcliff on Sour power station opened offering M1 commuters to Park and Ride. An Eco-Town is planned on Gotham Pastures near Clifton, a former outlier coal mine.

Religious experiences are seldom? This story involves a Yorkshireman, a Geordie, a Frenchman and a motor cyclist from Manchester. Fixing the derailer cable Brian the Yorkshireman calls the Frenchman who is out on his 1970s antique racer which the motor cyclist on his way to Castle Donnington stops to admire. The Frenchman dismissive of modern bicycle features like numbered Shimano derailers would have the modern bike like to a Gittane or Puegoet racer with analog controls only frays the cable annoying the Geordie owner of the bike. The disembling distracting Frenchman goes on about everyone favouring a fixed drive bottom bracket now. The Frenchman having frayed the cable would rendevous the next day to fix the mountain bike. The Geordies bike it seems is not a 1970’s classic. The motor cyclist happens to work in a chain cycle shop and fixes the derailer.

God delivered the cyclist with perfect timing like a Guardian Angel.

Meanwhile the Middle Classes are still shoring themselves up apparantly preventing upward social mobility by the Rif-raf.

In a biblical scene like a Jehovah Witness doorstep pamphlet I work on the terraces of St. Annes’ towards Mapperley and Valley Top in polytunnel 2 designed in a wind tunnel looking out at a godly storm in rain drenched hues the garden looks painterly facing south and the first allotment garden in England. The wilderness soon encroaches on orchards only recaptured with sythe and slash and burn.

Bowler hat wearing umbrella weilding pin stiped City Gents fending off interlopers from pushing in the queue outside Waterloo Railway Station could be walking a mile under the River Thames to the tightly packed stations underground round Bank Underground Station. There are few travelators below The Square Mile. These City Dudes face a dilema of being preached to at Sunday Sermons not to be Greedy but on Mondays face The Rest of The World’s Even More Greedy at Work.

2009, its a long hot summer for England’s private sector whilst bank clerks wallow in subshine in restaurants at lunchtime and civil servants hang on to their jobs for now. Feel the thrill of being wrongfooted by city workers on a crowded weekdays or pass St. Martin’s In The Way in to an empty financial capital at weekends.

Fascinating are City of London’s unheralded public houses and churches. Cycle through using bicycle clips wearing Church’s shoes, lilac shirt and pin striped suit.

A great loss to the English Speaking World was the apparent disappearance of books written before http://www.com/co.uk was widespread. Canadian Penguin Books one of which every description of space (tbc) as in rooms, business etc etc. Another Oriana Falachi’s description of Vietnam also Out of Print. Within the cycle of creation these facts would be most accommodated by Hinduism and Oriental Religions not the Vision of Pastoral England. QED, then religion is like an umbilical linked to geography and climate.

Yaffle is the coloquial name of the Green Woodpecker

Sylvia Plath was begining to think there was a God. From AustroGerman stock she was begeistert by Walt Whitman so via Ralph Waldo Emerson tenuously linked to Henry Ford and that part of rural Michigan where earthly heaven could be strolled into. The poem The Thin People tells of her Weltanshauung although not explicitly.

America with it’s Wilderness and space separated by deserts (depicted by Georgia O’Keeffe) could be viewed (construed) without visual biggotry as a heavenly place. American Superrealist paintings around Denver are as pure as the mountain rivers as depicted by Andrew Wyeth in watercolour.

Everyman implies that only good deeds could survive human death and therefore implies there is no Resurection.

Following SPs poem Sculptor (1958) illustrates that despite the obvious evidence of a Creator it may be difficult to materialise once dead. Sylvia Plath in Sculptor (1958) indicates towards the end of the poem that although there is an obvious desire for Resurection from the currently living spirits may not be able to Return from The Other side. Even from Arundle chapel Reincarnation may be nigh on impossible.

Glide off the pure chalk cliff Beachy Head or Seven Sisters in a black cape and prove it one way or another but there is no turning back. This is a good cycling stretch and now in a National Park.

Sylvia Plath thought that Great Voices spoke through The Great Living. This is logical and plausible at a stretch.

The Minus Zenith of Unglush Kulture (Naddir or Untergang) occured in the gegenwart von gestern when Joe Gormley project Trafalgar World Square was mentioned on Radio 4 The Archers Foreign Office and Home Office Subliminal Message broadcast from Portland Place but written and produced in BBC Birmingham. The horrific line alluded to Andy Pandy Warhol taking 15 minutes by train from Paddington Bear Station, linking Paddington Bear, Ditchling Beacon, Sans Serif, TGWU Transport and General Workers Union, Ginger Peachy, T Dan Smith (deceased), Crosby Beach, Gill Sans, Thamesmead, Eric Gill, Grampian Hospital Radio in Aberdeen, Lewes, Portland Bill, Oscar Wilde, Birtley and Kibblesworth, Gatwick Airport and Felling Baths. Joe Gormley’s Fourth Plinth Stars stay for 1 hour 4 times longer than Andy Pandy Bill and Ben Little Weed Trumpton Cocklewood Oliver Postgate Olympic Reggata Weymouth Bay Nogin the Nog Cricklewood Hampstead West Warhol’s fifteen minutes.

Redemption surfaced via stand-up comedian Kew born Milton Jones who has a way with words.

The Portland Stone building opposite Langham’s Hotel Portland Street is now the symbol BBC Radio. If you are Unemployed, Karl Gustav Jung, Isreali and hail from Gay Street, West Sussex walk in to the BBC Bookshop and ask for a job.

Not far is The Talking Bookshop. Always say ‘Good Morning’ when cycling past. A mouth (letterbox) opens in the Talking Bookshop and says ‘Hi Gabriel’ or whatever your name happens to be.
