Lucy [Censored]

I love you madly, you gorgeous wonderful woman.

You will not need to feel lonely, because I will be thinking of you every day.

Being apart is a worldly problem; but remember you are SPIRITUAL!

Loneliness is unnecessary because I will be cogitating, forever, upon you.

All my love, now and always

Stephen [Censored]

For John Morris – with very real gratitude.

Arthur Marshall said that he always read a few pages of Wodehouse before going to sleep – so that if he died in the night, it would be with a smile on his face.

Sand Inside

* 22 February 2014, London *

The brain begins in the eye –

Look at me, Jordan.

Recognize me, keep me in the form of a memorable thought.

To your timeless eyes and the beautiful heart of yours –

to the beauty you never stop noticing.

To the mortal misery

that will never reach or affect us –

Be inspired and brave –

Be curious.

Think of me –

Love me –
