#LISSEN.

It was dark when I switched on my bedside radio this morning. Instead of writing more stories for my upcoming book I heard the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas from a recording made during a lecture tour in the United States in 1950. Dylan is pleading with his young lady love back home to write a letter to him. A piano in the background is played by Fats Waller, his vocal follows right behind Dylan’s urgent request for a letter. Fats finishes with, ‘I’m gonna sit write down and write myself a letter. And make believe it comes from you’.

Two late and great artists from different fields. Magic! I was so impressed that I completely forgot my good intentions to get on with the bloody writing. Och well.
