Fascinating 'finissage' of the Call of the Wild exhibition yesterday at Natalia and Simon Zagorska Thomas' home and Studio Ex Purgamento with one-celled organisms behaving almost intelligently and Morse code going Dada and conversations ranging from this to that and every variation in between. Happy to have been there and looking forward to further eclectic/electric salons at ExPurg.
And tonight was my first ukulele lesson in a pub room near the BBC. It was fun even though my hands
are too small, my fingers too short and fingertips so sissy that nylon
strings hurt. The fingertip cushion skin toughens up after a while, I'm told. We learned
and (sort of) strummed three chords and two songs and have homework.
Teacher and students (about 12 of us) all very simpatico - a short
course, once a week for 4 weeks. Hope to report on some progress at the
end of it. At the moment my ukulele aptitude or ukitude, on a scale of 1
to 10, is approximately minus zero.
