Monsieur Jacques

I have had the immense pleasure of meeting Rudy Jacques and spending a few days surfing, shaping and photographing with him. I have found in him a man of deep humility and graciousness, a man of quiet, resolute peacefulness.

Lost Time

Seven months ago Phil the Hairman found a love of the sea and sand. He has been making up for lost time ever since...
Here he is getting low and trimming the fat off a little tumbler.

Thinking About the Climb

Set back by flooded roads our little winter troop weathered further south with some happy returns. Lovely to spend some time with new friends.

The Harrow & The Harvest

If you like closing your eyes and contentedly nodding, getting slowly drunk on song. If you like drawing back on a bit of banjo, inhaling harmonies. If you like the drowning intoxication of rolling melody. If you like these things then...

I love seeing surfers getting their wings out.

So the papers beat me to it and got a better shot too, but he's my mate so they can shove it.

Art's Neurosis

A memory of Kreisler once:
At some recital in this same city,
The seats all taken, I found myself pushed
On to the stage with a few others,
So near that I could see the toil
Of his face muscles, a pulse like a moth
Fluttering under the fine skin,
And the indelible veins of his smooth brow.

I could see, too, the twitching of the fingers,
Caught temporarily in art’s neurosis,
As we sat there or warmly applauded
This player who so beautifully suffered
For each of us upon his instrument.

So it must have been on Calvary
In the fiercer light of the thorns’ halo:
The men standing by and that one figure,
The hands bleeding, the mind bruised but calm,
Making such music as lives still.
And no one daring to interrupt
Because it was himself that he played
And closer than all of them the God listened.

R.S. Thomas - The Musician
