Journal History

no these Do not fit in !!!!!!the council is corrupt.. two local Torridge district councillors , who I stopped speaking to, eventually rang me up and told me .. they said they had agreed to something very different to what was built,, ??!!how it was  a few months ago.. .roses in my garden on the roadside by GeaAusten   IRONY by GeaAusten  I have M.E. and the noise which started so many years ago. makes it much worse, and it isn't helped by dust and complete disregard of us , by the builders,, they used to use my garden as a way of getting into the land at the end,, I started documenting it in about 2007.. I think ,

 when they cut down an oak tree which had a conservation order on it.THE COLOUR OF MONEY plans by GeaAustenCORCORRUPTION by GeaAustenRUPTION 

I was rung up by two councillors .
. David and Mollie Fulford who told me the council was corrupt.. and that David had never agreed to the buildings which were built, as they were out of keeping with the area,
now they have just knocked down a building which was part of my terrace , built in 1860,, it was a Naval college,, and the house they have knocked down was  Captains house.. the owner told people he was running it down , because he was refuse planning permission several times..
now they have finally knocked this beautiful house down and are planning to build three five storey blocks of flats, with penthouses ?
Every one around this house saw the Bats which used to nest here,, now the last roosts have been squashed,
I am cynical.
the noise and dust is intolerable,
but no-one will do anything ,,
no one will save the wildlife,, it used to be so beautiful...
yesterday the builder was on my land and I photographed him , then he ran away, it was because the digger was so close to the wall,,
we all get breathing problems,, so the dust is awful
the stress and strain over the years has been a nightmare


They have knocked down a beautiful Georgian house next door, to build three blocks of five storey flats, terrible noise, dust etc.Captains houseCaptains house by GeaAusten

My father made the first Peace/C.N.D. badges , I was with him helping him chose which design to use.. as a child prodigy I started painting when I was very young, but have never really been commercial.. but now I want the world to see my art..Someone asked me if I had ever put the CND sign in one of my designs//I have once,,
but I have a very different attitude to it than I think a lot of peope would expect,
My father was a real Purist,,
he loved simplicity, and black and white,
,. when the whole Peace movement developed,,
many years later, he absolutely winced at what was done to the sign
,, the embellishments of all kinds..
so I think I have copied him, we were extremely close,,
and I worshipped him..
he taught me to draw and paint ,, from when I was three,, and we used to sit together when he was making his pottery and talk about what he would do next.. and different designs etc. I have always felt the simplicity of the design is very beautiful,,, and enough in itself.. I'm glad the Peace movement have embraced the sign, and that people have made it their own.. the extraordinary popularity of the design is due to something I believe is quite sacred ... Gea Austen.

CORRUPTION by GeaAusten
CORRUPTION

I will lose my view of St. Margarets church..where my Mother is buried, David and Mollie Fulford[councillors] told me Torridge District council is corrupt .. what do I do ?
my house is where I've put my name, you can see the sheer mass of building work they are proposing,,this a very quiet residential area, with mainly bungalows,, these flats will be very expensive , and not suited for local people to buy ..
