It’s Brighton end of summer time! That means that there are only a few days left of warmth in the air and in our heart, a few days left of Love. After that everything will simply fall and face decay. Our soul will begin to collapse molecule after molecule to incinerate through the infinity of time, in the hope for a new sudden beginning. The transition will be a struggle. Come to visit Brighton & Hove before it’s too late, before the cold takes over our lips, our words, our hugs. The hibernating season is upon us. Please do yourself a favour, let your metabolic depression stay activated as much as it can, here in Brighton for the last time. Peace.
