Love it or hate it,(I was tired of it for years), London is one hell of a place, with a huge magnetic pull on all those people, who, like me, have for many years, breathed it´s air, walked it´s paths, heard it´s voices, seen it´s parks, rode it´s storms and witnessed it´s autumns magical dawns over a still lake... Ah..., how I will relish, savour, taste and inhale it´s familiar aroma, and this time, appreciate it.

I did it my way
It was with mixed feelings, that I approached Saturday´s night gig at Moynihans. On one hand it was nice to "finish the job", on the other, sadness that it´s over. A slot I occupied for two and a half years...Lots of lovely people turned up, Madeleine, Ivo, Martin,Taegh and new chappie Joey all had a go at singing. I was surprised Linn didn´t want to sing, but she was there, and that´s what counts! Ivo managed to pass on to the bar staff, during the break, a copy of one of my songs that I recorded with Dieter, What a nice surprise to hear it the first time!! I felt emotional and relieved. Have planned with Taegh to go up to the Earl of Derby-Cambridge, every now and then, for a gig and an overnight stay. So, with that out of the way, it´s now time to start packing for London. I´m so looking forward to seeing Shaun, Katie and Mattie, and also, most definitely, London.
