Musings from the road at sunset


Original YT playout date: 1 May 2009
Duration: 8:06

Featuring thoughts on applying the GoldList Method to the learning of poety, a presentation of Wordsworth’s “”Daffodils”” and whether man’s release of chemicals into the sky has affected the natural world much or not.

Entering Leopolis – the City of Lions (Ukraine Series #2/10)


Original YT playout date: 25 March 2009
Duration: 31:37

In the second part of my Ukrainian series you’ll see one of what for me is one of the more interesting films, where we drive my car into Lwow, western Ukraine.
