By Jo Tweedy For Mailonline. A thrilling new collection of previously unseen photographs of the Beatles and Eric Clapton taken by Pattie Boyd are to go on display for the first time in the UK. The rare images, largely taken during the late Sixties and Seventies, are part of Boyd's personal collection and promise a tantalising insight into the lives of some of the world's biggest rock stars.
P hotographs can arrest waves before they crash on the shore: they have the power to extract moments from the flow of time. Hence the attraction of happy snaps such as this one, which presents a honeymoon as the prolongation of playful childhood, not the start of adult life. It is a reminder of how infectiously boyish the Beatles were, before their protests against the Vietnam war and their blissed-out flirtation with eastern religion. They made a film, after all, in which they did nothing but run, jump, stand still and generally enjoy themselves. Pattie Boyd, a rock chick who later married Eric Clapton and was also fruitlessly wooed by Mick Jagger, seems to have been a playmate as much as a lover. She wanted a career as a model, and had the starved physique that was fashionable in the 60s, but she was tripped up by her rabbity front teeth, here seen poking through her lips. George asked her to marry him the moment they met; when she demurred he asked her out to dinner instead. She bestraddles George's back like a papoose, and reads the contours of his face with her fingers as if she were a baby deciphering the world for the first time. Together they make up a weirdly polymorphous sea creature, with as many tentacles as an octopus. The scene is happy because innocent, though maybe the surfy waves blab a more confidential story about the pair.
And also I thought it was weird she wore some kind of pants that come to her knees under her other pants, but I never asked about that. Let me tell you, it is NOT any easier. If everything she is taught is correct and the Mormon church is "true" she should be able to research any anti-Mormon books or movies and prove their criticisms are lies. I made the decision not to have those things when I married a non-member. But remember that it is also your wife's choice to obey or disobey, and that you have no authority over her as a person, either. Ending sooner rather than later is much easier and less painful for everybody. He is just very dedicated to his patients.
We moved city over 6 months ago which was in the best interests of her career as well as mine. You will get to mingle with a lot of new people, and who knows, maybe you will also find the guy or girl of your dreams there. The two of you can get married in the temple and live together forever for eternity. Good communication, love, support and understanding are the things you should consider. It's the sort of super dismissive "all women are the same" attitude that I learned in church and left to get away from. Yes, do sever the relationship. She likely hasn't had many long-term relationships and has no idea what dynamics are involved in one. I also have an MPH degree, and am currently working and trying to support us while he's in school. You will get to mingle with a lot of new people, and who knows, maybe you will also find the guy or girl of your dreams there. You can also attend their singles conferences, or participate in social activities organized by the Church.
