Don't Upset The Chefs...

I wanted to take a photo of Trish and Phyllis who are doing the cooking for the Guild meeting. I was warned off, but was told that I could get a preview of dessert...

Never upset the chef...

And I am sitting here in a sleet storm in Ireland missing these desserts for what??? Hope you eat a piece for me, Mulier.

One of the most magnificent, sumptuous, Lunches I have had for many a year.

And a wonderful opportunity to meet some lovely people.

Deo Gratias.

What a wonderful UNITY IN THE COMMUNITY photo of Dylan and Mary... The opposites unite when the Red Rose meets with the White.

In the mid 1980's when Nelson Mandela was still residing in the segregation unit of a South African prison, I was appointed as the site surveyor for the Unity Project in the London Borough of Southwark. Pelican House was the site office for this Housing Works, Direct Labour Contract. After discovering trade literature headed 'COON DISCO' I immediately added the Nigerian born UB 40 film producer Faith Isiakpere (later Channel 4 & BBC Black Britain too) to the team, and after completion of the building work I introduced Ezra Attia's interior designer Elaine Tomlinson to the project team and Southwark Council too. Both of these black professionals were Addey & Stanhope Old Scholars like me and Adam Afriye the Conservative MP for Windsor. The last I heard, after Faith Isiakpere had completed 'The Children of Africa' film with Mr Mandela, Stevie Wonder and Isaac Hayes etc was that he was working with UNICEF in South Africa.

As an idealistic newly qualified RICS surveyor just returning from a period of retreat at Mount Meleray in Ireland, the dream that I had the night before I started the UNITY project could only be interpreted and described as a BIG DREAM.


When I was out a wandering upon the hills so green.
I spied myself a vision of a bright celestial Queen.

A rosary,a rosary with rainbows all around.
A blood red cross she gave to me upon that hallowed ground.

She wore a crown of silver and in her arms she bore.
A child who was the future of mans peace and not of war.

A rosary,a rosary with rainbows all around.
A blood red cross she gave to me upon that hallowed ground.

Corpus Christi woman was the lady that I saw.
Build inside she said to me mans inner self once more.

A rosary,a rosary with rainbows all around.
A blood red cross she gave to me upon that hallowed ground.

And that was the song I sang for you and the Guild of the Blessed Titus Brandsma, after Dylan gave me a rosary that has been blessed by Pope Benedict XVI himself.

Our Lady of the Rosary pray for us!

I haven't been able to get a copy made of the CD SONGS AND DREAMS FOR SAD SISTER DEPTFORD that I promised Dylan Parry and the Guild at the 2nd meeting of the Guild of the Blessed Titus Brandsma, so I thought I would explore and make a contribution to the world of soundcloud so that I could get my Arts Lift to you all via the internet. Here it is

God our Father, source of life and freedom, through Your Holy Spirit, you gave the Carmelite, Titus Brandsma the courage to affirm human dignity even in the midst of suffering and degrading persecution. Grant us that same spirit so that, in refusing all compromise with error we may always and everywhere give coherent witness to Your abiding presence among us. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen
