Weekend 508.0

All three are very closely related and timely/relevant.

(1) A quote from The Gift of Silence by Jerome Kodell, OSB:

“The favorite images of Mary in art are the moments of silence: the annunciation; the scene at the crib—as a Christmas carol says, ‘How silently, how silently, the wondrous gift is given’; and Mary holding the body of Jesus in her arms beneath the cross. The silence of Mary is not an empty silence. It is a silence of contemplation: of waiting, of pondering, of loving. Mary pondering the message of Gabriel at the beginning and Mary with Jesus at the end: these are two different moments—of bewilderment, surprise, and apprehension, and loss of life, pain, and sorrow. The word that comes out of these moments is then and for all eternity the word of acceptance, submission: Fiat, ‘let it be.'”

London Station Group (Collect ‘Em All)

There are 18 railway stations served by the National Rail network in central London. My goal is to explore and photograph each. Here’s a quick list / summary to date of those I’ve visited (and travelled to/from). My favorite station in the LSG is Euston whilst my favorite destination station (not terminal) is Harlow Town. Harlow Town (1959) was featured in British Rail Architecture 1948-97 (pgs. 76-81) by David Lawrence and was described in Architectural Review as the “first and most convincing fulfilment of the promise of better railway architecture in Britain.”

Weekend 507.2

I was in Bournemouth / Poole this weekend for the Poole Town FC Dolphins versus Dorchester Town Magpies football match. The Dolphins scored a late goal in the first-half and then held on in the second to earn all three points.

Weekend 507.1

“But here the wild seemed to have a different agenda, an insistence on a postmodern coexistence with the city, even a hint of triumphalism. In the mood of the times, it seemed almost insurrectionary.” – Richard Mabey

Alone, desecrated, desolated and the heathen shall build

Biden: Surrenderer-In-Chief

“I don’t care if you think I’m Satan reincarnated.” — Joe Biden

T.S. Eliot on Biden, Obama, Harris, Rice, Brennan, Murphy, Romney, Kerry…

“Find an oasis in the desert sun,
Go seek alliance with the heathen Saracen,
To share his filthy rites, and try to snatch
Forgetfulness in his libidinous courts,
Oblivion in the fountain by the date-tree;
Or sit and bite your nails in Aquitaine.
In the small circle of pain within the skull
You still shall tramp and tread one endless round
Of thought, to justify your action to yourselves,
Weaving a fiction which unravels as you weave,
Pacing forever in the hell of make-believe
Which never is belief: this is your fate on earth
And we must think no further of you.”

Weekend 506.0

(1) Two from T.S. Eliot:

“Longer and darker the day, shorter and colder the night. Still and stifling the air: but a wind is stored up in the East. The starved crow sits in the field, attentive; and in the wood the owl rehearses the hollow note of death.”

“What day is the day that we know that we hope for or fear for? Every day is the day we should fear from or hope from. One moment weighs like another. Only in retrospection, selection. We say, that was the day. The critical moment that is always now, and here. Even now, in sordid particulars the eternal design may appear.”

(2) My Flickr album of the Midland Hotel in Morecambe. It was built in the 30s and reminds me of the Bird Terminal / TWA Hotel at JFK. I’m still working on a post about the architect and artists involved in its construction.

(2a) These are beautiful photos of the hotel from Flickr member robmcrorie.

(2b) A quote from The Midland Hotel: Morecambe’s White Hope by Barry Guise and Pam Brook:

“As well as allowing him [Oliver Hill] to design a substantial building in the new style he had embraced with enthusiasm, the Midland Hotel gave Hill the opportunity to put into practice his vision of unity in architecture and decoration. It was his belief that a building’s external appearance should be intimately linked to its internal décor, furniture, and upholstery – a philosophy he likened to ‘the French ensemblier system of architect, sculptor, decorative painter and other craftsmen…collaborating to one end and ideal’. It was this holistic concept that Hill brought to the Midland Hotel, one that would see him take complete control of all aspects of the project, from the building’s exterior design to its colour scheme, works of art, decoration, and furnishings – even down to the waitresses’ outfits, the colour of the hand towels and the shape of the door handles!”

(2c) A quote on Oliver Hill by Ken Powell:

“Alongside the revolutionary dynamics of the Thirties, an older tradition of craftsmanship persisted. Oliver Hill was, almost uniquely, able to bridge the divide between modernism and tradition. His work, hedonistic and even self-indulgent, may lack the purity and progressive zeal – and the breadth of imagination – of a Lubetkin or a Mendelssohn, yet Hill was a key populariser of modern architecture, selling it to clients who were not interested in social revolution.”

Limestone Roof 18th Anniversary

My first post was 18 years ago (216 months). The original was on Blogger before migrating to WordPress after google stopped supporting FTP publishing on March 26, 2010. It’s MOSTLY an outline for a list of eclectic interests and I’m proud of it as a hub, sandbox, archive, and incubator for all these fragments.

Weekend 505.3

Weekend 505.2

A crazy weekend trip to Morecambe for some League One football. It’s a bear to get to from London BUT a night in the Midland Hotel and a Shrimps WIN made it less arduous. Sunday Mass and Rosary was at St. Mary’s.
