This work of art on an area of corrugated iron in the back streets of Peckham looks remarkably like Amy Winehouse in a snarling but beautiful pose. Strikes me as a fitting response to the madness and marvel of Christmas, a time to renew light, life, the laughable. and alliteration. However snarling only looks good on a young face. Season’s greetings!
Once upon a time in Lapland where the snow was metres high, I learned a lesson which I’d like to pass on. A two-person husky ride has one passenger who is seated (as if in a Russian movie) while the other stands to steer the ride. Do not choose to sit – as I did – for when the huskies begin their morning ride so too they begin to evacuate their bowels. My nose was directly in line with the dogs’ bottoms. Take a stand. Merry Christmas!
