How to Get Your Head Together in the Country
I’m having a meeting with old Perry Venus in Hay about updating the website. I think that the night thing has had its day. Something of the Night will stand or fall without my feeble attempts to promote the thing, whereas my new project, which is nearing fruition, is waiting to take over.
The new book’s title is
A Hero For High Times,
(Being an account of the life and opinions of
Mr Robert Rowberry)
A Younger Reader’s Guide
to the Beats, Hippies, Heads, Freaks, Punks, Ravers, New-Age fellow Travellers
Dog-On-A-Rope Brew Crew Crusties of the British Isles,
1956 – 1994
How to get your head together in the country
I hope that over the next few weeks we’ll pull off a re-design. I want the blog named after the epilogue.; How to get your head together in the country.
In order to illustrate this, here are some photos of me enjoying myself in the countryside.
This is a photo of me aged 20, taken in the countryside around Lampeter. I have hair, and sufficient eyesight to thread a daisy chain, a talent I perfected in school cricket.
Here’s a picture of me aged 30 taking Swizzle for a walk in the Radnor Forest.
Here’s a picture of me aged 40-ish, crossing the site at Radnorshire’s leading pop music festival, Sheep Music
Here’s a picture of me in my early fifties, leading some young folk in country dancing at Secret Garden Party
And here I am today!
I hope you enjoy the changes over the next few weeks.
