The 1955 Committee (and others) 2022

Ellie, Dave, me (b. 1955), Nick (b. 1955), Frank (b. 1955) and photographer Len (b. 1955), in The Belvedere (where we'd all met a few years ago), November 14th 2022 (my birthday).  

Who would have thought that I'd have written that day's line, only hours before: 'In a sweet birthday shower of body parts'? That strange inner-life of words and the outside world of sociality. We need both. 

There are many posts 'about' November 1955 on this blog. Here's one: Pages: November 1955 (robertsheppard.blogspot.com) Here's one that hits the target date: Pages: November 14th 1955; 'Tombland: How soon hath Time, the subtle thief of youth' (robertsheppard.blogspot.com).

Oh, yes, there are other posts about the Belvedere. Here's one about the poems Chris McCabe and I had on the walls once, along with a handwritten Brian Patten poem! Pages: Chris McCabe and Robert Sheppard poems in the Belvedere, Liverpool!
