'A tea time drunk weaving his way down Old Compton Street in the blinding sun stops me, and with a smile says, "Son, I want to give you two shillings".
I was quite taken aback as my hand was already in my pocket fumbling for change.
He gave me the two shillings. I thanked him and he said, "Good day".
"It is", I said. "All sunlight".
