Last night was great

20090805 CND Mark & banner 093

In this photo you can see (left to right): someone from National CND, old man who looks like Michael Foot, Mark, Jan – (in red holding the banner) and – erm, some other people.  Should have uploaded a different photo with all my friends in.  Not to mention Bruce Kent.  I’ll find another one later.

Last night:

Present: Peter, Jan, Yvan, Claire.  Also, back from Lifebeat – Holly!  She brought with her a number of necklaces and bracelets that she’d made.  I made pizza and salad and hoped that others would bring snacks.  In fact everyone brought wine so we ended up with 2 bottles of rose, one of white, plus 2 wine boxes (one of which Steve had mauled in an attempt to wrestle it open) and half a bottle of red.

A good had was time by all.

the pizza went down well, and the plinth video generated a lot of interest.  We watched another one of a woman in the middle of the night doing shadow puppets to an audience of one (a policeman).  It is great to see what people come up with.  And the best thing about this whole project is – it’s a celebrity-free zone!

We need this.  We need a return to people being themselves, valuing what they are and what they have to offer.  Being interested and interesting – and above all, not worrying about what they look like!

Long may it continue.

Gormley for President.

PS Oh, and Peter’s photos were much appreciated also – here are a couple – showing my supporters with their banners, and one with me doing a victory dance when I’d finished.
