Around London in 80 days
In these uncertain times, I need a lifeline and a horizon so I have — somewhat arbitrarily I’ll admit — set a date. April 1st will be my horizon ; my lifeline will be the 80 days separating me from it.
And as I cannot go around the world right now, I give you A Mad Belgian’s “Around London in 80 Days” : eighty impressions of London, eighty stories, places, thoughts from my experience of this wonderfully mad and maddening city.
Day 36: Breeze
Valentine Day, 2021. The whole world is at home —so am I.
As I walk through Victoria Park near my house in the East I see a lonely heart gently move with the breeze.
I stop. It does too; so does time. A minute of magic on a cold Valentine’s.
