Summer Solstice, longest day of the year, the future King’s birthday, plus MY birthday; all of the above takes place on 21stJune.
All of my adult life I have stretched my birthday antics out for as long as possible. Most of June in fact, and why not? This year, I kicked off the celebrations with the summertime Hacienda Classical festival on my home turf of Hampstead Heath, followed by a weekend cruising the south western coastline of Mallorca. I managed to forget how old I am by engulfing myself in holiday reading, getting lost in a great book.
Whatever Makes Them Danceby Lindsay Wesker
What is masculinity? What is being a man? What is ‘being manly’? Are all men really the same?
Without giving the plot away, it’s a story about a number of things. It’s about love. It’s about friendship. And it’s about the different ways one can live life.
You might know Lindsay as one of the infamous DJ founders of the pirate radio incarnation of Kiss FM, now broadcasting on super smooth digital radio station MiSoul.
Author, Director and DJ, I thoroughly recommend his book for your Balearic holidays this summer.
