Three times a week my wife goes to our nearest sports club and takes Pilates lessons. She swears by them. The gym is often crowded, and one of the regulars is Paul McCartney’s wife, Nancy Shevell. Sir Paul, now 70, often comes to work out too, but whereas his wife has a regular trainer he does exercises all on his own. Apparently, he always finishes the same way — by standing on his head, for a long time. There is probably a very good reason for it, but I confess the Lewis Carroll lines come to mind:

“You are old, Father William,” the young man said,

“And your hair has become very white;

And yet you incessantly stand on your head-

Do you think, at your age, it is right?”
