"I've been out there in rain, hails, been out there one day in a clap of thunder and lightning - great forked lightning came down through the water...''

Roma Pearce, a dear friend and swimming companion, was interviewed by ITV over the summer (you'll need to skip the first 5 minutes to get to her bit). What she doesn't mention is that she's swam with dolphins and seals at Gylly too.

Roger Towe, Head Librarian at Woodlane library died earlier this week from a heart attack.

It is very hard to imagine the college without him.

My first thought, after disbelief, was that I didn't say thank you enough. Without Roger's support and encouragement this project wouldn't have happened. He was always available for a moral-boosting talk, full of ideas and contacts and when you are trying to get a project started, a positive voice from inside the college means so much.

He had a vision for the college that came from a genuine enthusiasm for student's work and from seeing the library as a hub that brought people together. The exhibition space above the library and ongoing collection of student and graduate work and publications was just one part of this.

Dean Owens put it well when he said: 'He's irreplaceable as his job description could simply have read: 'being Roger.'

Thank you Roger.

It's a wet and windy poster eve night.

I hope there are some wonderful surprises in store.

I will write more tomorrow, but I just wanted to say GOOD LUCK to everyone starting a course at University College Falmouth and if you get a poster today, I'd love to hear what you think.

Almost all of this year's designs can be seen here.

POST is a new journal enabling students on the MA courses at University College Falmouth to see what is going on on the other MAs.

I've been really lucky to watch Dean, Jon and Steve bring this thing together. Their passion, expertise and attention to detail, has created an inspiring first issue and an ongoing concept that's going to last.

The magazine launch is this Thursday, at Woodlane Library. I hope I can convince them to 'post' on the project. There is a strong advice to sink in slowly connection so more POST news to come ...
