Thanks to: our families - patient and loving through this private obsession; Christ and the Buddha for saying it first; Joseph for your dulcet tones; those early '70s musical adventurers for inspiration, and Elvis Costello; "What's so funny about peace, love and understanding?"
in memory of Simon Norman Walker, who fought the hardest war of all. May you rest in peace.
