Just before leaving London/Tower Hamlets to live in Madrid, I met up with my good friend and fellow artist Stephen Emmerson. We walked across Waterloo Bridge and wandered into a magic hat shop called The Mad Hatter. I ended up with a rabbit hat (thanks to Stephen). It is a special hat. I composed a lot of poems from my upcoming poetry collection The Green Monk in Madrid in my rabbit hat. I also performed for the last time in London in my rabbit hat. It is a good hat. It is here now in Castelldefels, in the next room, resting in a hat box, waiting for the weather to cool down (maybe never).

Nice Cage just published an excerpt of my novel manuscript The Autobiography of Don Whiskers. This excerpt is called Rabbit Hat. It is a true story.
