THE SEAGULL & THE CROUTONS

I’m an idiot for not taking a video of the gull. I’ll tell you why. For the first day in ages it had stopped raining and was just warm enough for me to have my breakfast outside a café – Eggs Benedict for what it’s worth. Halfway through eating I spotted this gull stood at

JUST THE MIRROR PLAYING GAMES

‘Come a Frozen Morning’ How do you write over-the-top surreal lyrics like Dylan? I’m thinking Desolation Row style here. Answer: basically you don’t. He’s one of a kind. Even so, that doesn’t mean we can’t try. I NEVER UNDERSTOOD You had a dream in the beginning You had a dream that sounded good Why you

LETTER IN A BOTTLE

‘Claudette Colbert still from Cecil B. DeMille’s ‘Cleopatra’ movie 85 years ago’ He was thinking to himself that he’d never written a letter. A proper letter, using a pen and paper. A letter he would write, sign and post. He decided he’d have a go although the absence of pre-emptive text was worrying him. His

SEAGULLS, CROWS & PIGEONS

‘DON’T LOOK BACK IN ANGER’

‘Six Wives of Henry’ All I asked for was a plain omelette. I was in France at the time so what I said must have got lost in translation. What I got served up was a mushroom omelette. I hated mushrooms. Always had.  However, one bite later I discovered I loved mushrooms. That was about
