From the book of spirals and stealing - "Spirals ? Will anyone care about spirals ?I mean real spirals that are beyong centers and circular motions. Spirals that are brillant and erratic, in thin, close, vibrating, mad detail, nervous, impulsive brillant even when declared less than brillant as they increasingly get better. I said to my sister or she said to me, come let's play at spirals together. We stood up and stretched out our arms then we started. At first we just pretended, of course.Careful spiriling.Windup spiraling, that's all, spiraling so crap that we were almost walking in straight lines. Spinning so bad that we ended topless. We were as careful as church spires. Then they came to us, it happened and we both suddely mattered, things began to turn around for us. Real spirals, total, absolute spirals, twirling us both away... Until we both swirled unstoppable, like two little winged space seedlings in our own spiraling galaxies. ERRATUM. FROM THE BOOK OF CIRCLING AND CORRECTION."

"Circles ? Will anyone ever care about circles ? I mean real circles that are beyond pinpointed centers, and correctly stating diameter and circumference measurements. Circles that are brillant and erratic, in thin, close, vibrating, mad detail, nervous, impulsive, peneil led. Oddly brilliant, ironically brilliant even when declared less than brilliant as they increasingly get better. I said to my sister or my sister said to me, come let's play at circling together. We stood up and stretched out our arms then we started. At first we just pretended, of course. Careful circling, attemps that moved in such unsocial circles that we were a couple of squares, that's all. Then they came to us, the correction we were both waiting for fell over our heads like we wre winning pens at the fairground, things turned around for us. Real circles, total, absolute circles thought bubbling us both away... Until we both cartwheeled unstoppable, like two new planets in our own circling universes." Danny Flynn Burning Booh Press !

Camden lock -
Camden Lock Market, by the canal, was the original craft market, established in 1974, but now has a much wider spectrum of goods on sale. Both this and the ever popular Camden Stables Market - centre of the alternative fashion scene, Camden (Buck Street) Market, the recently improved Camden Lock Villageand Inverness Street Market - which thrived on local trade long before tourists discovered Camden, are all open every day, making the area well worth a mid-week visit. But it is at the weekend that the market scene jumps fully into life with all stalls and shops at the markets fully trading. The indoor fashion market at the Electric Ballroom opens on Sunday only.
