One of the nicest things about the evening I have just spent with Gaia and Hania at Livebait, apart from the sustainably caught seafood, which was exquisite, was their comment that they had both picked people to work with and for who share a characteristic they associate with me: playful. Would be happy with that as an epitaph.
But walking around Covent Garden, both before and after, as I had with Sam earlier in the week when we were out buying artist’s canvases to serve as pinboards at Volans, I was struck by how much my working life has insulated me from the urban life all around. Must work to rectify. The Velvet Underground are playing in my headphones, ‘That’s the Story of My Life’.
