Just a photo

I still feel cheered by this photo I took with my phone a few weeks ago. First the flower fluttered down from a windowbox, outside a Tottenham Court Road pub. Passers-by didn't seem to see it, yet they never stepped on it either. (Well, eventually somebody did.) Meanwhile, these two people came and stood by it for ages, talking.

I like this picture by David Shankbone - it's of me clutching the podium so as not to collapse to the floor, two minutes after learning that I'd won the National Book Critics' Circle Biography Award last Thursday!
