It starts young and in the family way – and all the best novels and poetry and music and paintings are about it. And so, continuing the theme of rewrites on history, the word Pothos (see the ghost of it underneath it all?) painted on with a big soft Sumi type brush, was the launching of this piece- added to with some rediscovered family photos.
