There's always something new to think about.
Never give up. You can often do more than you think you can. The results can surprise you, and delight others.
1. Work with the best, it makes everything better. 2. It's best that you don't meet your heroes.
Learn a language and a musical instrument. (I know, yawn. But that's what I'd do.)
Seeing the look of hope in the eyes of talented young people trying to break into this industry. I see a lot of them through my work with the IPA. It's both the most inspiring sight, and the most terrifying.
Talking with Bobby George, the former world champion of darts, and something of an idol of mine, at Campaign's inter-agency darts night. I was embarrassed for him, but probably shouldn't have been.
Cycling, on the approach to Mont Ventoux. It soon wore off, to be replaced by mild fear.
Beautiful things, made with passion by craftsmen/women.
That rare Ali-Foreman on-site fight poster for the Rumble in the Jungle. Headlined Zaire '74, the one with Mobotu, Ali and Foreman headshots.
Got into that stranger's limo in Bangkok in 1987.
I am nice too much of the time. It sometimes makes people angry.
A "collectormaniac". I am a compulsive acquirer of collections; posters, pinback badges, watches, boxing memorabilia, books, records, bikes… the list goes on. I get obsessed with something, then move on to something else. It does my head in.
