  • Photo by @lucalocatelliphoto | Battersea Power Station in London has been for decades the symbol of disruptive architecture and harmful coal energy production. Today it is the centerpiece of a mile-long redevelopment along the Thames and will soon be home to offices and residences. Critics say the project is too focused on luxury in a city short on affordable housing, yet it caught my eye for its innovative architectural solutions.

  • The Elgin Marbles (or the Parthenon Marbles) are Greek marble sculptures that adorned the Parthenon on the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. Dating from the 5th century BCE, the Marbles depict various Greek gods and goddesses, including Dionysus (pictured here). In the early 1800s, Lord Elgin of Great Britain oversaw the removal of the Marbles from the Parthenon (then a ruin) while Greece was under Ottoman rule. The Marbles were then acquired by the British Museum and exhibited by 1817. Over the ensuing 200 years, the public has debated the proper home of the Marbles—whether in Greece or in Britain. Recently, a UNESCO committee has convened to evaluate resolution of the debate. Britain’s negotiated exit from the European Union has also added new dimension to such discussions. Should the Marbles be returned to their native Greece? #bestlife #greece #elginmarbles #parthenonmarbles #unitedkingdom #britain #uk #britishmuseum #brexit #unesco #parthenon #acropolis #greek #elginmarblescontroversy

  • Every year is getting shorter
Never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught 
or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone
The song is over
Thought I'd something more to say
