William Agnew, MP, art dealer and Liberal politician. At the time of this painting he had recently been elected as MP for South East Lancashire. Along with his brother Thomas he helped to establish @agnewsgallery (founded in Manchester by their father in 1817) as a leading international firm. Opening in London in 1860, Agnew’s soon became one of Mayfair’s leading galleries. Since then Agnew’s has held a pre-eminent position in the Art world.

Life is like music for its own sake. We are living in an eternal now, and when we listen to music we are not listening to the past, we are not listening to the future, we are listening to an expanded present. - Alan Watts
Posljednje vrijeme proučavam različite filozofe. S njima si nekako uvijek u dobrom društvu čak i kada se u potpunosti ne slažeš sa njihovim pogledom na svijet jer uvažavaju i tvoje mišljenje (iako te ne čuju ;) ). Pružaju mogućnost da sagledaš važne životne koncepte iz različith perspektiva. U sinoćnom čitanju vrlo me dojmio Alan Watts i danas ću hodati svijetom gledajući ljude na još jedan, drugačiji, način! :)
It's the @gozwift National Championship this weekend; the perfect opportunity to put my extreme race training and 5 w/kg FTP fitness to the test. The championship race provides maximum stimulus and motivation to push myself beyond my perceived limits - this is where I love to ride. HOWEVER, during my last live-streamed race on YouTube (link in bio) you may have seen my power meter catastrophically FAILED. Long story short: no power meter, no National Championships for Ash.
To ensure this isn’t the case come Sunday, I'm currently on a 40 mile mission out of London on my bike to pick up the last resort, fallback solution whilst crossing my fingers all the way that the brand new replacement crank arm @ribble_cycles have gone out of their way to attempt to get the manufacturer to ship me as a replacement arrives in time.
It's not the build-up to the Zwift National Championships I had anticipated, but whenever I get the opportunity to make my body my transport I’ll take it and use it to gain fitness. 💪🏻 Will I get to race Sunday? Watch this space... 🤞🏻🚴🏻♂️⚡️
