!!! – Lilla Vega, Copenhagen 27/5/2017

People always ask me, "What's so fucking great about dancing?” Saturday 27th May 2017. It’s one of those days that feels like the Earth’s on fire. One of those days where it doesn’t matter what you wear just as long as it involves sunscreen, ice cubes and a hat. We (me and my better half,... Continue Reading →

The Loop

Without hesitation I stepped in allowing the door to lock itself behind me.   After a few months I grew bored with... Continue Reading →


Whoa, what the fuck. He's cut that way too short. My own fault for daydreaming rather than keeping an eye on the old duffer I suppose.

By the time I caught up with him he was bent double, hands on his knees, like an obese American forced to walk the final few hundred yards for his happy meal after his car had given up the ghost.  I wasn't doing much better myself, the crisp white blouse I'd put on that morning already ear-marked for...
