Happy Birthday David Keenan
Today is author, tarot reader extraordinaire and Heavenly friend David Keenan’s birthday. If you haven’t read his incredible books For The Good Times, This Is Memorial Device and England’s Hidden Reverse, we highly recommend you fast-track them to the top of your isolation reading pile.
Here’s a photo of David with our Katherine and Sonny on the makeshift dance floor of Dartington Cricket Club. ‘Twas the night before Sea Change, and also Jeff’s birthday; he insisted on DJing himself, blasting soul 45s into the night through a speaker stack worthy of Notting Hill Carnival. Keenan brought the dance moves to match.
Sea Change takes place online this weekend. Find out more.

Sophie’s Isolation Social diary
The Social crew have displayed an admirable fighting spirit during this lockdown, together they have created ‘The Social Gathering’ broadsheet, a brilliant paper that ‘welcomes the endless Sunday.’ Sophie Green’s weekly ‘Isolation Social Diary’ is a weekly highlight of mine, documenting the ups, downs and in the middles of life in the new abnormal… it’s a comforting read. I admire my friend’s courage to put pen to paper and share her thoughts during this tough time. It’s made me laugh and cry in equal measure and I can’t get enough of her daily Instagram stories too. Follow @fishlill on instagram here and on The Social website here.
