• FROM an ad for Leonard Cohen on the Isle of Wight (1970).

“Do you ever get the feeling that you want to disengage yourself from life?

“To withdraw into some kind of solitary contemplation just to think about everything for a while?”

Fifty years on, we’ve done it for two months!

St George’s Fields, W2
