ME

My name’s Julian Richards.  I’m a Cornishman at heart and I’ve been living ‘up country’ for about 30 years. Artwork and design for print and screen. Image making for business and pleasure. That’s a bit of what I do… It has been said that I’m “always pro-active, helpful, innovative and persistent – in a good way!”. I’ve more than thirty […]

Missed a birthday… 3250miles / 12mths.

It was two years ago, May 2011, that I purchased my Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc 2011. Here’s an update on the bike’s needs so far… If you are commuting you really need to carry ‘stuff’, hence a multi-purpose the rack on the back for my two panniers. You also need decent mudguards if you want to […]

Having lived in West Cornwall until I was twenty something years old, Gwithian/Godreavy Beach in Cornwall is a place I spent many hours as a boy and young person.

Bits and bobs on the wall.

Bit’s a bobs have been calling this old typecase home for probably more than 15 years now – and the case hasn’t been dusted properly for about 6 years!! We’ve painted the hall/stairs/landing (a job I love to hate – don’t you just love painting a white ceiling white? Don’t get me started! I digress…) […]

A True Story…

The cycling kettle and the meandering pot… (a true story, however the names of the individuals have been changed to avoid conflict) A kettle was cycling along the other day and approached an inattentive pot crossing the road with her two little pottlettes. The pot was unaware of the peddling kettle as her gaze was […]

Listen.. can u hear breathing?.. r u alive?

It’s been a while since I uttered some nonsense – that could be good be a good sign… then again… You won’t fly until you truly let go… you’ll not feel the song until you really hear it… you can’t stretch until you truly wake up… Easier said than done!? As Keats inferred, unheard melodies […]

Feeding Eli…

You may be aware that we have a menagerie in the household with the beloved Cheese, Pickles and Bryher, (as well as umpteen inanimate bears and things) but our wet friends always give us cause to chill and wonder.Over the years we’ve had a healthy tank and been lucky to only seen a handful of residents depart […]

It may be cold…

It may be cold but, ‘get in there’! It has to be done…A week after our islandic ‘week off’ (plus a few days enhanced by paracetamol based products etc) and perhaps we’re back to as near to normality as one might expect.Back cycling to work etc, and mulling over whirling thoughts generated by recent reading… […]
