|A step on my academic ladder|
|A sample of what I collected|
Well trying to find some documents I came a cross this advert for my first postgraduate degree which I started (by Distance Learning) when I was living and working in Hong Kong.
What it brought to mind was how difficult I find it not to take courses - next week I'm back at the coal face of Philosophy and will be starting a picture framing at RACC course too - this morning I see that Nick Pearson will be running a course on 20th Century design at OPEN Ealing in May and I'm definitely up for that one too as well as Nick being a great communicator I can see that it will help inform the volunteering I do at The Design Museum.
TV and Radio
Caught on BBC iPlayer a very considered and worthwhile Panorama about the Suicide of presenter Simon Jack's father - Male suicide rate remains alarmingly high and the analysis from the programme was that men internalise and fail to communicate - I guess it's a responsibility on all of us to try and correct this and help those around us.
Another great example of the BBC's eclectic range was a programme (another one) about Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah - not the best show about Laughing Len but worth a listen.
