Dear Pilgrims,

One is always at home in one’s past…  

I was born David Charles Kelly in Camden, raised & dragged under a car in Essex, haunted by Heffah between Cranham & Ingatestone, discovered Saint Erkembode in Saint-Omer, studied & met the Mimih in Leeds, felt bad in Bow, practised tombstone rubbing & lost my mother whilst in North London, worked for a museum in Bloomsbury, mudlarked along the Thames, lived in a tower & married & became David Charles Erkembode Kelly-Mancaux in Hackney & now find myself living beneath orchids and fish in Đà Nẵng.

This is the Year of the Mimih.

Speak to Erkembode or leave your shoes atop his tomb...
