This painting by Marc Chagal, exhibiting the sheer joy of existing, perfectly captures my mood right now. Joyously and outrageously life-affirming.

For a variety of reasons, I haven't had a chance to write much recently. I had a fabulous lamb-laden Turkish meal on Green Lanes last night where all the waiters wore Turkish football shirts, but otherwise, since returning from Spain, have simply been relaxing reading and kicking back with friends at home.

Tonight, though, I'm off to Oxford to see Rufus Wainwright in concert, and tomorrow it's back to London to see beautiful Portuguese fado singer Mariza at the Royal Festival Hall. Yipppppeeeeeeeeeeeee!
