The past of Mr Bruce Lacey

Wow isn't the internet cool?

Former Library that's the Camden Arts Centre
Yes, it gave me the chance to find out a figure who was registered in the back of my mind as a heroic maverick from my youth who would be involved peripherally with 60's counter culture called Bruce Lacey.
Bruce is still going strong any yesterday before it closes (today) Debbie and I went to  (I suppose)  a retrospective at the rather pleasant Camden Arts Centre  of his work and times.
But compared with Bruce himself perhaps the Web's s not so cool - Bruce has moved from being (to me) some sort of crazy post WWII lab tech to a slightly scary Shamen figure .
The big message fro Bruce was keep the child in yourself alive - the exhibition was free to all.
