Notes from the Island

The Island welcomes everybody. Every day many visit and thousands pass close by, though few notice it. It is a place of brief encounters, of buried secrets, of moments glimpsed in rear-view mirrors. A brief pause on a journey. The Island has no border controls, no prisons, no buying and selling. Is it a utopia? Perhaps it could be, a sanctuary of non-interference amidst the surveillance cameras. The Island, London SE14 - much more than just a traffic island on the A2, New Cross Road.

Pirate Visit

Last night the Island hosted a visit by the Pirate Society from Goldsmiths. Timbers were shivered prior to retiring to the nearby White Hart. The Pirates had various ideas - could they seize another island further down the New Cross Road and proclaim a pirate republic? Can we get a Jolly Roger flying on the Island? Can we have a beach party on the Island (maybe when it gets a bit warmer)?
