Wassailing/Yulesinging takes place on Twelfth Night. In this occasion a large crowd of people wait for the arrival of the Green-Man by boat from further up the river Thames. On landing he performs the traditional wassailing. He then is received by a troupe of Mummers who proceed to perform a parody of George and the Dragon and contemporary England and politicians.

My previous blog referred to the four Faces of Time, well here is a fifth face, following the principle that a river not only has two shores but three according to the teachings of the wise man of the Upper Amazon: The Three Halves of Ino Moxo.
In future blogs I intend to represent the various other faces (phases) of Time

Eel Pie Island is, as the name suggests, an island situated on the river Thames tideway by Twickenham.
Twice yearly the resident artists in the island open their studios to the public.
A ramshackle boatyard is part of the charm of the island with old bits of machinery framing the small artists’ studios along a colourful path.
Back in the 50s and 60s the island was a Mecca for rock and R&B groups. Some went to great fame: Long John Baldry’s Hoochie Coochie Men (including Rod Stewart), Kenny Ball, Acker Bilk, David Bowie, Alexis Korner, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers (featuring Eric Clapton), George Melly, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, The Tridents (featuring Jeff Beck), The Who, The Yardbirds, etc. etc.

This past weekend it was one end of the river Thames, this is the Greenwich end. The famous Royal Naval Hospital, now Greenwich University.
It was a grey day, quite apt for the texture of the buildings.

As an ongoing project to ‘map’ the river Thames, an early evening crossing the bridge towards Richmond.
The idea is to document as much as possible the life of the river Thames
