The profundity of experience in the richness of talent that swirls in ever changing configurations around me is never less than…. amazing. The man in Singapore who is
putting together festivals in Moscow…. the woman from South africa who begins a book club by the thames… the bookish guy in Brighton who translates Spanish writers…the sparky man in hampstead who is cultivating an idea for a book after having toured worldwide with his hit record… …the woman in westminister who was a record manager
and is now a music lawyer… the list goes proverbially on and on. They are mothers and fathers, single or attached, introverted and extroverted. They are one and all charting the river that runs through us. When we are not engaging with them – reading their books, listening to their music etc – they run with the wolves.
