Something beautiful will come out of the wreckage, don't despair. This fallen tree is on my daily walk.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Thank you to everyone who made last year so special for me, what a journey! Here's to all of us as we carry on our way . I wish for us all kindness and understanding and LOVE.
I was blown away last night by #bullettongue by @thebighouseuk , a truth-heavy theatre piece on London's gang culture, the London so many of us don't see. #ShonaghWoodburn-Hall was incredible. I'd encourage any policy makers who work in issues around young people/drugs/violence to see it . It will stay with me forever. @rachelreevesmp it's on until Saturday... maybe they'll do a special performance for some M.P's
Overjoyed to have this #senganengudi exhibition on my doorstep in Leeds. I love her fragile, tense work and the fact that she could store a whole exhibit in her handbag when she was starting out. I wanted to interact with the vinyl water pieces... like melted Mr Freeeze lollies
Going through old photos.... this is when we sang for @barackobama @michelleobama in celebration of @paulmccartney. What a night!! I sang with Herbie Hancock and got to hang with Stevie Wonder. I never dreamed my music would take me to the places it has . Just feeling grateful and amazed as I reorganise my archive.
Deco dreams ... the #BeaumontHotel

Late afternoon light by the Rhine. People are still swimming the river, leaving their clothes upon the shore. Pondering... shall I leave mine... @adetacher

Last night I had the most incredible pleasure of performing with @laphil conducted by @gustavodudamel . It was a sublime experience, akin to flying and I was euphoric as I came off stage knowing I had done my best. I had such a thrill with my duet partner #ChrisMartin Thank you to all who attended the Gala @herbiehancockofficial @kingparisnicole #laphilgala2018 Photos @mathewimaging
