1. What are your current obsessions? in no particular order...William Blake seeing God looking at him through a window when he was 4 and seeing a tree full of angels in peckham rye when he was 8. Horses. Cigarettes. Music. watching the sky for weather. moon phases. ok.

5. What are you listening to? The Herd Of Horses by S. Esanin performed by G. Sviridov USSR. go was the song which came up first on my iTunes. powerful stuff but suspect not everyone's cuppa.

12. First spring thing? huh? landrover springs or what?

13. Planning to travel to next? nothing concrete...thinking of zambia or joburg s.a.

14. Best thing you ate or drank lately? whisky and chocolates from tati.

15. When did you last get tipsy? tuesday night. raucously so.

16. Favourite ever film? before the rain. the last good one i can remember seeing...hmmmm otherwise, pass.

17. Care to share some wisdom? "...and above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it..." roald dahl

18. If you could change one thing in your life what would it be? an endless supply of clean natural water and a large field of lucern.
soooooooooooo as these things go....catchy as they are, you've got to answer all the questions, change one and add one....ok? only if you want.

Loved this .
Yes, yes, for the Roald Dahl who can be rather dark and chilling.
So the quitting ciggies didn't take?
Well, I'm still alive after all these years.
Do you know anyone to mail me Gitanes from foreign parts?.....
considered too evil in UK/US

I love noticing how many times the word "horse" appears in your answers. Music, books, clothing, life ... very cool.
