Photograph: Alexander Chow-Stuart. Today would have been (astonishingly for me and Ann Totterdell, his mother) my first son Joe Buffalo's 29th birthday. When Joe died at the age of five of Wilms tumor in 1989, he wanted to be a seagull or a dolphin. This photograph, which I took in Santa Cruz on Monday, is to honor his beautiful, wonderful, funny personality and his perfect life (it has to be what the cosmos intended and therefore can only be natural, true and perfect). Peace and unending, infinite love to Joe Buffalo...and Happy Birthday Little Star!
