|BEATITUDE by Martha Brown|
I have to say that it is a very personable picture and a favourite of many of my friends and other people. In fact, when Parkinson's UK agreed to assist me with my appearance on the Fourth Plinth, they supported the performance by, inter alia, sending out press reports to various parts of the media accompanied by a copy of this photograph which they specifically requested.
Martha felt I looked too glum and insisted that I smiled. So I smiled.
