Pain and Regret

annie-hall keira-k

A couple of weeks ago my good friend and I had a long(ish) debate about the likeness of George Harrison statue on the Liverpool pierhead.  The statue is part of the Fab Four statue and I maintained that they all looked similar to their likeness but David insisted that there was something not right with the George Harrison.  So I deployed what I thought was the killer argument that as neither he nor I had actually met the George Harrison we will never truly know the answer.   Of course this argument is spurious because we all change from day to day, especially in this celebrity obsessed world where the famous can’t even go to the local newsagent without having the attention of some fan/wannabe and their iPhone.   In the end we all are aware of the famous and we all have our own image of them in our heads, whether these images are a true likeness or not and so in the end we can only judge based on our own predjudice.
