Mrs Mackerel’s TFI Friday (13th April)

So much can happen in one week, even when you feel that time stands still. Simone Felice at the Jericho Tavern, for example. There I was, MM photographer for the night, fins flailing, blinding everyone by inadvertently turning on the flash. Fortunately no-one asked me to leave, particularly as it was such a great gig. More like a front room jam. A couple of days … Continue reading Mrs Mackerel’s TFI Friday (13th April)

Mrs Mackerel’s TFI Friday (31st December)

Doing those things you do at Christmas. Watching a film. Quietly crying a few tears at a sad story. Feel a small hand cover mine. I’ll look after you mama. A little time passes. A few more tears cried, this time belonging to the owner of the small hands. Empathy. Compassion. Love. One moment to treasure a whole lifetime. Happy New Year.
