As a psychedelia fan I was lost for words when Asia, my friend Beth Ellen's talented daughter, created this amazing portrait in my honour! It's definitely worthy of a Ta-Dah moment.
I found this book I'd bought 16 years ago whilst I was trying to reorganise the bookcase, promptly abandoning my mission mid-task to re-read it. After seeing the crazy prices it's fetching on Amazon I thought you might enjoy a peek for free.

Arriving in 1966 I was born too late for the psychedelic era but I've been living by Victor Moscoso's words for most of my life.
A bloke in a grey jersey tracksuit accused me of "fucking blinding" him with my outfit today!
|1960s towelling maxi (beautiful beach babe, Sarah), belt worn as a head scarf (thanks for the inspiration, Kezzie) Vintage orange suede waistcoat (Xmas present from Liz), beaded panda bag (PDSA charity shop), huge copper hoop earrings (the inspirational Pat), Silver velvet platforms (Office sale, 2011)|
I'm off to draw the curtains, sit in front of the fire and pretend it's not snowing.
See you soon.
