The McCartneys


I don't think I'll ever tire of looking through photographs of Linda and Paul McCartney from the late 1960s and early 1970s. I remember picking up a McCartney record in Oxfam on my birthday a couple of years ago and I've regretted not buying it ever since purely because the album art inside was so nice with personal family photos, presumably many taken by Linda decorating the inside of the sleeve. In every picture they always look so in love, and Linda's little dresses and leather sandals don't hurt either..

A short clip of Paul McCartney playing 'Blackbird, which 'fyi' (I only just learnt this) is about the struggles of African Americans in the 1960s rather than an actual bird. Flying into the light. Of a dark black night..

Blackbird is a lovely song but so sombre too. And thank you for the blog comment, a walk in the park is good for lifting spirits. xxx

Wings was a severely rad band. And Linda was an absolute champion vegetarian :)

Thanks for bringing up Jackie O's veil in my veil post. You made a really interesting point and got my mind wandering down tonnes of other avenues.
