One wall of my office – controlled chaos. Overseen by portraits of Paul, my great-grandmother, girl with a pearl earring, Colette…

A boy and his glamma. “You on de lello one, me on de blue one,” he said after, and we went back and forth.

A boy and his chocolate lollypop from Stratford and t-shirt from Monoprix, Paris. One of his favourite words already: shoc-o-late. A young man after my own heart.
