Who are we, if not a combination of experiences, information, books we have read things imagined? Each life is an encyclopedia, a library, an inventory of objects, a series of styles, and everything can be constantly reshuffled and reordered in every conceivable way" Italo Calvino

Reading: Wonderful Tonight by, Pattie Boyd
As the weather gets colder I find my nose turns towards a book.... again. My most resent obsession is with the book written by Pattie Boyd, Wonderful Tonight.
A friend has loaned me this exciting book to read...funny thing is I never heard of this famous lady until now!
Even in my younger days I didn't know of her... I was not allowed to listen torock and roll music, so I had little or no knowledge of Pattie or her famous husbands.

She had an expedition of the photos she had taken.
Pattie Boyd has the most amazing story to tell, I find it most intriguing, especially after I have also just finished Chris O'Dells book...the two were friends.
Pattie and George Harrison of The Beatles and Chris O'Dell, Patties friend lived in this huge manssion... Friar Park.
