Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Mrs Monk’s Would-Be Diary .........

Tate Shadows

23 June 2008

We made our way to visit the Cy Twombly art show and as we drove we listened to Jah Wobble’s CD, Heaven and Earth .

I reminded Mrs Monk that Jah Wobble, was given his name by the Sex Pistol, Sid Vicious who mispronounced his real name, John Wardle.

Mrs Monk showed no interest in my anecdote, but as soon as we arrived at Tate Modern, I found her discussing the art of “Sid Wobbly”, at first disparagingly and then with respect since she was in due course impressed by the show.

As always we were inspired creatively and could not wait to get home to start drawing and painting, but since we were there at the time of day that enabled the sun to find its way into the grand Turbine Hall, I found myself snapping away at the shadows created by a late afternoon sunburst. I was not alone. Cameras were snapping everywhere and tourists were overcome with shadow-making and one man adopted Christ like poses with remarkable conviction.
