Lesson One

O muses help me now!

Lesson Two


Just one of thoses days.

Lesson Three 


A wise man once said, 'Reading between the lines brings enlightenment but little peace of mind'.

Lesson Four - the clouds unfold

Hold infinity in the palms of your hand...

Lesson Five - the moral crisis


The darkest places in hell are reserved...

Lesson Six - a heap of broken images, where the sun beats

Between the motion and the act falls the Shadow 

Lesson Seven - the sincere intuition of the soul

Don't forget the words of D. H. Lawrence. All vital truth contains the memory of all that for which it is not true.

Lesson Eight - Let's face the music and dance

So there was this fiddle player called Jeduthun 

Lesson Nine - Contemplating pre-history in the abstract

If a pebble or an egg can be enjoyed for the sake of its shape only, it is one step towards a true appreciation of sculpture (Barbara Hepworth)

Lesson Ten - autoemancipation

All concepts of politics, of whatever kind, are about conflict──how to contain it, or abolish it. (Miliband) 

Lesson Eleven - Mounting barded steeds

The idle pleasures of these days.

Lesson Twelve - When you walk in the garden...


...until the sunshine breaks forth upon our land...

Lesson Thirteen - Memories of the Grand Tour

Mantegna was eminent as an engraver, though his history in that respect is somewhat obscure, partly because he never signed or dated any of his plates, but for a single disputed instance of 1472.

Lesson Fourteen -  Mellow fruitfulness

Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too.

Lesson Fifteen - But now they softly run

 It was so old a ship and yet so beautiful.

Epilogue - drawing these tides of men

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible (T.E.Lawrence)
