      1. I think I’m the same way – even the things I was exposed to when I was young – I’m not sure I paid enough attention to them. Now, it’s different. I’m older and more interested!

        1. I was always interested, Barbara. But I felt it was a waste of time telling me things I could easily learn from books. I wanted school to teach me how to learn, how to combine all the knowledge in a creative and useful way. I learned that later on by myself. Looking back, I understand it was the need for the school to get us through exams, rather than to educate us; a situation that remains today, unfortunately.

  1. Oh boy, what a story. Thanks, daddy. Just one more? (The kid gets no reply. Stuart walks away and turns out the light. As he goes downstairs he calls to his wife “You certainly have a bizarre family. Your sister’s youngest is a real pip”.

  2. This intrigued me enough to look it up and it is amazing. I found it interesting that the proposed sculpture was not well received, but now that it is finished it is considered an icon. How lucky for you to be able to get up close and spend time with her. Thanks for posting.

    1. Any member of the public can enter the spot, Brenda, walk around it and sit at the base of this giant male angel. See my reply to Tom below for more info, although it looks as if you’ve already done some research.

    1. A story, Tom? Would that be about the angel, or the photograph?
      The sculpture stands by the main road in Gateshead, which is near Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the northeast of England. Designed in steel by Anthony Gormley, it stands 66 feet tall with a wingspan of 177 feet. It was erected in 1998 and remains Britain’s tallest sculpture.
      As for the photograph, we were in the area to visit relatives and passed this giant, so had to stop, of course. I wanted to emphasise the solidity and size of this piece, so reduced the statue to a silhouette against the contrasting whispy clouds.
