eventually managed to get to see the iron figures, which make up 'another place' on crosby beach on saturday. i could have spent ages there as they really have a profound impact. admittedly the sun shining was an added bonus, but there's something very calming and reassuring about them. of course, beauty in the eye of the beholder and art and all that means i can make of them what i wish, but the longing and looking to another place beyond, or even on, the horizon seems to be a common thread in others responses and even in anthony gormley's own reflections. all i all a profoundly spiritual experience for me. a good meal with good friends ian and linda afterwards also had an influence!
