I love the way Bob (one of our amazing geomagnetists, who uncovers the history and magnetic secrets of the Earth by looking at tiny cubes of mud!) so willingly agreed to model this beautiful rose. What more fitting setting could there be? Here is an ‘undertaker’, in a hard hat, in the middle of the ocean, with a flower of remembrance!
When I was a child (which was a long time ago), my window on the world was through books. One day my Dad came home with a gift from one of his teaching colleagues. What a wonderful gift it was! It was a beautiful, old (even then) complete set of the Encyclopaedia Britannica! The car seemed to be full of these big, heavy books, beautifully bound with gold lettering.
