Carlos at The Spin

On Thursday we went to see Carlos (Lopez-Real) play at The Spin. Carlos was in my year at St Hugh’s and is an absolute sweetie, as well as being a really talented musician.

These are dreadful photos taken on my ‘phone – so you can’t see that Carlos looks at least 20 years younger than me. He has a five month old son, and he’s a jazz musician. Surely he should be worn and raddled!

Take every opportunity…

I found out this afternoon that my dear friend Gwen died yesterday. She was the kind of fun, loving person that touches many people’s lives. I’m really glad that after many heartaches and setbacks, she found such great happiness with her husband Mark.

I’m also glad that I told her I loved her many, many times.

” In a man’s life, his time is but a moment, his being a mere flux, his senses a dim glimpse, his body food for the worms, and his soul a restless eddy … the things of the body pass like a flowing stream; life is a brief sojourn, and one’s mark in this world is soon forgotten.”

Marcus Aurelius
