Today I went to Salisbury Cathedral. I fancied a day away from home and I'd read that the Cathedral has a new art installation which I thought might be fun.
Well, the day didn't go quite as planned - there was a tree across the line between Southampton and Salisbury, so that bit of the journey was a long cold wait until the rail guys decided to put us in taxis to get there. Fine, but when I arrived I realised the installation had only been half installed (see Extra) so instead you have the wonderful rhythmic ceiling of the nave. While there, I read the word 'nave' comes from the Latin for 'navel' (as in ships, not belly buttons) because said ceilings look like an upsidedown wooden sailing ship. So now I know!
So a lovely day, but one thing I was reminded of about Salisbury. R, my business partner, and I worked for several years on publicity for Salisbury Festival so we went over there a lot. And you know - it's always cold in Salisbury, and was again today!! Very beautiful, but chilly.
Wishing you a good evening and a great tomorrow xx
