He Is Called Mick Jagger

Love comes in many different shapes – I love this letter from Keith Richards to his aunt that describes his first meeting with Mick Jagger. I’m sure their creative relationship has had its ups and downs, but it’s hard not to smile at the obvious excitement of a young Keith about meeting someone totally on his wavelength.

I’ve been lucky enough to find ‘the one’, but I can totally relate to the feeling that things will never come together. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is unbelievably intelligent and downright hysterical as she tells this story of a Nigerian immigrant and her experiences in the US.

Someone Like You

When I met my partner, we went to Washington DC on our third date. He had brought a cassette player with little speakers and he said lay down with me and listen. He put it on and I couldn’t believe what he was telling me…we had both been though long term relationships, but we hadn’t even found the ONE. Every time I hear this song I cry because I realize someone was looking for someone just like me, and he found him.
