Rod the British Buddha

Earlier this year I met the most wonderful man, one whom I nicknamed (in my mind) Rod Stewart. He is probably one of the most brilliant minded people I have ever met and we both helped each other through some hard times. I like to think of him as a British Buddha as he always has the wisest things to say for any situation.

He’s moving back to the UK this December and wrote me the sweetest poem in parting.


I met a girl called annabelle

I wouldn’t say I knew her well

But having met her

I would say

She brightened up the darkest days
and what support,

from one so slight

her mind her tool

the pen her might



All the best. A.B.C!
