#060: walking around the west village

Postcard sent to Beth Maudlin of Texas, one of my Twitter buddies.

A few days ago, I tweeted out, “The first person to email me wins this original drawing” etc, Beth was the first one to reply. [NB- the tweet has since been deleted].

About the drawing: This time, back in New York City’s West Village in December, 1998, I was shopping for Christmas presents in the snow. It was was one of those moments when life seemed absolutely perfect. Everything was alright in the universe. Those moments had become increasingly non-existent ever since leaving college, it was nice to be back in the flow again.

#049: you don’t get smarter with age

Postcard sent to Callum Campbell, an old Edinburgh school chum, now living in Warwickshire.

We weren’t close at school- he was in the year above me, for one thing. But later, I saw him around a lot drinking in Whigham’s Wine Bar, where I worked at during my college vacations.
