If you live in or near London, please, please go. Please take a camera and get your picture taken with Michel. Please ‘whoop it up’ when “Silent Dark Eyes” is announced at the event.

If you go, please seek out Michael and give him, from me, either a firm hand-shake or an open mouthed kiss, depending upon your own sensibilities.
