!!!!!!!! TYPOS!!!!!!!! it's ot go to bed!!! he! he!

...OK...sorry for the few tipos...!! of course you know I meant " I love THE way The Beatles inspire you..." iPad!!!!!

"Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see......It's getting hard to be someone, but it all works out It doesn't matter much to me..." so funny how some lyrics stay with you for ever...these ones did it for me... my most favourites one from the boys after "The End"...of course! and your brilliant portrait of John totally fits that great great song dear Paul...most creative cropping...very clever use of the dark negative space...and those bright reds and blues giving your image a "psychedelic" feel that brings us right back to 1967...I love you way The Beatles inspire you...and it's soooo contageous!! xx " Let me take you down ‘Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields..."

Paul Lovering replied:

Hi dear Marie ..... Yes I am with you , these lyrics are a brilliant piece of imaginative songwriting , they do stick , and the message is in the words . I am sooooooooooooo thrilled you like this work , your wonderful words always inspire me to the max ..... My best wishes and thanks from a gorgeous sunny Edinburgh ... Paulxx
