Liverpool 1962. Great group playing in Cavern Club but Susan says cellar cramped so we leave.
Liverpool 2000. Help a woman called Juliana find her car.
Leeds 2013. Feel ill at work.
Leeds 2014. Specialist gives me all clear. Susan tells me she needs space. Nothing happens.
Liverpool 2015. Susan doesn’t like Beatles statues. Someone’s suspended coloured umbrellas nearby. She doesn’t like those either. I go on to Facebook.
Leeds 2016. I dream I find Juliana at the statues. John Lennon winks and says “C’mon.” We all stride away from the Pier Head and I kiss Juliana, under the umbrellas.
