Rob Ashman of Sea Legs Puppet Theatre is the most loyal client of the eminent psychotherapist Dr Charlie Chesterton BA(Hons), MA, DipPsy, DClinPsy.

In Tales from the Couch he tells the story of how a working class boy from South Wales ended up scraping a living as a puppeteer in Hereford, of all places. He also explains who Don Newton is  and what part Little Jimmy Osmond had to play with it.

Little Jimmy Osmond, now there's a name I never thought I'd be writing in the annals of the WHC. Still stranger things have happened.

Sea Legs Puppet Theatre is well known for its kids' shows, such as its telling of the story of The Musicians of Bremen (one of horsemouth's favourite tales) but puppetry, like education is possibly wasted on the young.

Patti Smith - True to the Trail

Looking forward to the live stream event by Patti Smith at 3pm EST / New York time today (ticket details here). I didn't have much pre-planned this year (just as well hey?) but had bought tickets for one of her scheduled Albert Hall shows and so this is a stop-gap.

This photo was taken in July 2014 when I tracked her down after spotting a concert poster in Tromso, Norway. I was in town with some colleagues to join the Greenpeace Esperanza for an expedition to Svalbard
