"Welcome to my house. I'm delighted you could come. I'm certain you will find your stay here most illuminating. Think of me as your unseen host, and believe that during your stay I shall be with you in spirit. May you find the answer that you seek. It is here, I promise you. And now, auf Wiedersehen."

'All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.'

The Italian Gardens situated at the head of The Long Water on the north side of Kensington Gardens. Everyday for two years I walked past these gardens on the way to the Royal College of Art across the park. So at once they seem very familiar without ever having entered them. On this particular evening during summer it was fortunate to record them as if deserted, a chance moment when they seemed abandoned by tourists as twilight bathed the formal structures, and vapour trials criss-cross the sky above.
