Saw Max today. He begged me for another portrait. I eventually gave in. Then he spent an hour and a half in make-up and another hour getting his hair just right.
At the end of that he was so excited he just wouldn’t keep still. So I told him to meditate on the meaning of his life. After about 15 minutes he settled into a contemplative mood.
We exchanged some thoughts on philosophy and then listened tothe radio for a bit. We heard about the election being announced today and Gordon Brown saying “the future is within our grasp”. Max was immediately gripped with the profoundness of this thought. And I got this.
