it's never too late, or never too early to be whatever you want to be. there's no time limit, stop whenever you want, you can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. we can make the best or the worst of it. i hope you make the best of it. i hope you see things that startle you. i hope you feel things you never felt before. i hope you meet people with a different point of view. i hope you live a life you're proud of. if you find that you're not, i hope you have the strength to start all over again.
yesterday i was thinking it was about time i watching a new David Fincher film when up come the credits on a cracker and there's his name "the curious case of Benjamin Button" from which the words above are paraphrased. so i see this Ford GT 500 smashed outside a salvage yard thinking it's a beautiful thing that someone has enjoyed and this American car is an uncommon vehicle in the North of England. i return later with my camera, and the hoods up, headlight hanging off the floor blinking and two blokes inside, it must be the salvage guys sorting it out i thought. I wait for them to get out so i can ask to take some photos, not 20 seconds and a guy walks round,
"what they doin'?"
"i don't know"
opens the door,
"what yer doin?"
"rars whreere eree"
"get out of my car!"
out falls two bums, their dog and the remains of a 2litre bottle of 'value' cider meerin' and marin' about how they mean no harm and weren't doing anything wrong, they hung about like people do when they're smashed until they left when he quite rightly told them to do one.
"Mind if i take some photos mate?"
"It's seen better days, but go ahead"
Two wasted old bums sat in a smashed up GT 500, flickin' the switches...
