Eugh Morrissey, a hideous flowery-shirted poser and miserable git, leaning on the grave of a genius!

I hope I'm not being picky, but I think it's a little disrepectful he has his foot on the grave & is "embracing" it...

The foot thing - yeah, but I don't think "embracing" it is disgraceful (although it looks more as if he's just leaning against it). I'm not ashamed to admit when I was there, I embraced and kissed it, and I, obviously, didn't feel as though I was being disrespectful. As a matter of fact, I felt the opposite. It did embarrass my brother, I think. At least we were the only ones there at the moment (as my brother would express in relief - I would have done it, unashamedly so, if the entire population of Rome was in attendance.), but it was only about 30 minutes before the 4 o'clock closing.

I love reading your last post Ennis - I envy your opportunity to see Keats' grave site. Loved the way your shared that with us!

"I would have done it, unashamedly so, if the entire population of Rome was in attendance" - awesome!!

Like Jane Campion, she did the same.

Pity my mother who had to listen to my brother Phil's Morrissey LPS in the 1980s. She found them dirge like. I also have to confess I used to listen to him as well as I was bit of a lefty back then- we have both moved on, glad to say.
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.
