A moment with Van Gogh

I have just entered the moment that brush stroke was made

The jagged bent grass in the young hay field.

It´s May, perhaps June

It is early summer in Auvers

One hundred and twenty four years ago.wpid-cam00865.jpg

I landed back in the ´60s

One evening, a couple of years ago, I was walking down High Park Street in Liverpool, and I passed Admiral Grove, where Ringo Starr grew up.  It´s fog, not focus, that makes this photo so blurred that you can´t even read “Admiral Grove”.  I felt I´d entered a worm-hole in time: on a November night, it seemed that nothing had changed since the 60s.
