James

 

 

Taken in April 1986. James was a vibrant and energetic friend, his voice filled the large Victorian house I rented rooms in as he came to visit Adam and others.

He died too soon and before I could make peace over some silly misunderstanding. Sorry James.

the nature of things

Surrounded by the intensity of nature, occasionally the blinkers are lowered. Hilly Fields park in Brockley London. (Its parallels with “The singing ringing tree” also strike a chord)
