Steak and kidney pudding.

Further fine tuning of diorama - still not wholly successful.

Yesterday, I described the atmosphere of these photographs of my draft diorama as "post-apocalyptic". Actually, "just after dawn" would have been just as good a term.

The church is not quite right - it looks as if it's made from a single sheet of cardboard whereas the main building (I think) looks pretty real.

Another shot showing the juxtaposition of white paper buildings and grey cardboard ones.

Not sure which "finish" to go for. Pretty sure the two styles cannot co-exist.

Last night's dinner:

Steak and kidney pudding, carrots and broccoli.

Continuing with the Tracey Emin collection - at times quite profound.

Bruckner's 4th Symphony, "the Romantic".

Off to the Usher Hall in Edinburgh tonight for the The Philarmonia under Esa Pekka Salonen.

Really looking forward to it.

As one grows older and feels that each week could be one's last on this earth, it seems important to pack in as many momentous experiences as one can. I anticipate tonight's performance to be one such.

Esa Pekka Salonen was born in Helsinki in 1958 - he looks about 25 years old.
