Twenty

Twenty years ago today...
I was living in London, I smoked, drank, smoked blow, rode a bicycle, wrote poetry, wrote music, wrote letters, had a girlfriend, had a Spectrum 128k, had two jobs, used public transport, socialised at the weekend, bought and listened to tapes and vinyl, owned various bits of tech, didn't own too many clothes and spent a lot of time daydreaming.
Twenty years ago today...
I didn't own a car, a PC, a mobile phone, a smart phone, a Sony Reader, a PS3, a PSP, a typewriter, a Moleskine notebook or mechanical pencil. I didn't know about the internet, Twitter, Facebook, FL Studio, plugins, video calls, instant messaging, apps, blogs.
Twenty years ago today...
My father died...
Some things change, some things are bound to stay the same but memories you can keep forever.
And I've got loads.
