Bringing It All Back Home

‘Everything reminds me of something. I have filled my house and my head with things: books, records, paintings, stories; souvenirs that have no meaning except to me. Sometimes I think my house is my head and my head has become my house.’ – Ian Clayton, Bringing It All Back Home
