Hazy memories of a beautiful summer afternoon in California in about 1980. We were staying with John and Gillian Ellenby in Palo Alto and went to visit Bill and Karen. There were connections as I too had been a student at Hornsey College of Art and we had mutual friends in North London. I remember the beautiful house, the warm welcome and a very relaxed long lunch sitting round a a big table out in the open air – delicious food, lots of laughter, lots to share. Bill, I haven’t seen you since then, but the world feels a smaller place without you. Karen, my heart goes out to you and the boys. Thank you for a lovely day.
