Simon Watson

I have been meaning to post about my friend
for some time.
And now seems like the perfect time 
as he is one of my oldest friends and based in NYC.
When I first moved to NYC in 1993 
I slept on his floor for 3 weeks
and he set me up with my first NY job 
working for an interior designer friend of his.

In Ireland we knew he was a great guy
and a good friend 
what we didn't know was,
he was such a great talent.
For that, as is often the case......he had to leave.

 I look forward to hanging out with my old friend in NYC again.
This time I won't be sleeping on his floor.

Have a great weekend
