I am a "semi-retired" professional cellist, born in England, but living in BC for the past 45 years. I have a passion for drawing and will endeavour to use the medium of pen-and-ink to comment each day on anything current, cultural or comical that catches my attention.

One response to “La Cathedrale engloutie.”

    Dear Ian,

    Terrific drawing and reference to Debussy and 1910 floods. I marvel at all your works of art and the breadth and scope of your relevance to contemporary political, artistic and cultural events. You are a great and creative artist and I also marvel at your productivity.

    Just returned from Devon, rural life and toxic Brexit discourse (vote three weeks from now). Tabloids and ‘leave’ campaigns are stridently xenophobic and anti-immigrant and latest Guardian poll puts the leave side marginally ahead. What with Trump and the rise of right wing racist-groups in Europe I fear future outcomes. Certainly if leave is successful with Boris Johnson leading a fractured Tory party and Trump as President – a nightmare scenario. Canada appears to be a haven of civility and inclusiveness despite the obvious problems. Give me Trudeau any day!

    Visited Edinburgh and explored Waddell School archives – what a great musical institution and legacy to all of us and the generations that were inspired. Mamie and Ruth’s mother was a fine artist and her diaries and drawings were in the archives – in particular covering period from 1910 – 1920’s. Mamie was a key musical mentor in my life and I benefitted from the instruments she loaned me from the beginning. I also have fond memories of Pooles Synod Hall and the pre-lesson movies!

    I have been thinking of visiting. BC sometime to touch base with my brother and two nieces and nephew – all doing well. And would also like to visit with you and Susan. However I am split between Montreal and Devon right now.

    Thank you for sharing your art and insights.

    Best wishes Joy
