Take me to the station
And put me on a train
I’ve got no expectations
To pass through here again

Once I was a rich man and

Now I am so poor
But never in my sweet short life
Have I felt like this before

You heart is like a diamond
You throw your pearls at swine
And as I watch you leaving me
You pack my peace of mind

Our love was like the water
That splashes on a stone
Our love is like our music
Its here, and then its gone

So take me to the airport
And put me on a plane
I got no expectations
To pass through here again

Words to No Expectations by M. Jagger/K. Richards

Blue sky = flip flops out. I spent a year in Australia and learned very quickly that  no other footwear comes close to the humble ‘thong’ as they call it. What’s great about them is if you take them off it doesn’t feel  awkward and bare feet is the best feeling. On fresh cut grass, the beach, the back yard; the shoes should be off if the weather’s warm. The book, by the way is about the Rolling Stones and the ‘blanket’ is actually a vintage leather jacket; you gotta if you want to sit on the grass.

I’m reading the Philip Norman biography on the Rolling Stones and it’s keeping my obsession with their style and that of their girlfriends’ piqued to say the least. This coat was my mother’s and she wore it to a Rolling Stones gig in America when it was new. The shoes are a little later and are nearly impossible to walk in but if I keep to the flat pavements and stay away from the cobbles I can just about manage!
