Lily Cole is studying history of art at Cambridge. She's doing very well
there too. According to some snooty critics though, this is a soft option;
not a difficult 'proper degree'. They'll be saying next that Cambridge is
not a proper university. Indeed, some already say that.
Years ago, I went
on TV with Hugh Laurie (who took Archaeology and Anthropology at that same
University). When I said that this made him an academic, he strongly denied
it. In my book anyone who gets a place at a place like that is a smarty
pants. But then, I don't suppose they teach out of my book at Cambridge!
couple of centuries ago, they did. Students weren't students unless they
studied some astrology. Lily will find, as she works her way through that
History of Art course, that many of the pictures and paintings she studies
are full of cosmological references. A bit of astrological history might
well prove helpful to her.
She's a Taurean, you know, with a Venus/Saturn
opposition and the Moon in Cancer. If you think we've already seen plenty of
her, wait till we really start hearing from her. She's going to lead one of 21st century’s most interesting lives.
