“Riding on time” – The Rewind Festival, Henley, August 2015 – Tuesday 25th August 2015

And there was a division of joy telling us that love will tear us apart again, but then in the 17th heaven we were told to keep us from temptation and then to keep china in our hands. Soon we were dancing with tears in our eyes, imagining we were in Vienna and as the sky faded to grey, we didn’t want to let the sun go down on us.
