FOLKESTONE TRIENNIAL

IMG_2873.PNGWell the day has come at last after so much preparation this year and I think it is going to be the best ever Triennial.
On Thursday it was reported that the Berlin based artist Michael Sailstorter had buried 30 individual pieces of 24-caret gold under the sand of the Outer Harbour beach. I wondered why people were looking to buy metal detectors on FaceBook that day! The children had lots of fun and to date I have only read that 4 bits have been found, with a lot of people saying it is not true; I say get looking and dig!

This is going to be a lovely place to sit and when I first go there I will have my trusted notebook and pen and I will compose a poem of all I see, smell and feel, a senses poem from the heart; watch this space for the finished article. The park is situated behind this building, sorry about the picture.
