Back to Richard's window


From Edinburgh

Scottish by origin, crafted by long winters, family holidays and an education system which made me believe it was second to none, whilst 'forgetting' my history. I'm as socially constructed as the next person and happy to play my part.

What inspires me?

If I told you it would sound like a string of cliches - which might be ok because I think that disdain for cliches is over-rated.

My best line

My memory is no longer what it was and the context has no doubt moved on, but it was probably something of a cliche (see above)
