After hitching her wagon in California, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana for 18 years, with a brief spell in Mexico, the prodigal daughter returned to London, happy to put an unconventional and risqué past behind her. It sometimes feels like she’s still at war with herself. This often leads her into a whole lot of trouble, although it’s fair to blame it on some of her best qualities: intelligence, original thinking, willingness to take risks, skepticism, rebelliousness, independence, and creativity. But you know what, much of the trouble she gets into is because she can’t help pointing out that the emperor is naked. Remi still lives by her own rules, nobody else’s.

The big smoke is home for the moment, but she desperately yearns wide open spaces, where she hopes to call home in the near future.

  1. The police and Hackney council need to take SERIOUSLY the concern of the people hanging about in the park after hours and the dog walkers with aggressive, out of control dogs off leash in the park. This area is no longer safe for decent local residents.
