My town

Bright sun and blue sky In London today. So welcome. Hate so what feels like endless dark, wet, cold days.

Been walking my feet off. Passed so many iconic sites, the places that make up my neighbourhood. Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park. Lovely. Past too a sign not seen before, saying that the church used to be attached to a leper colony. Different days. I enjoy the sense of history, wondering about all the people over the centuries who walked these streets.

Now it’s tourists taking photos with their smart phones, wealthy Russians in ostentatious expensive ugly fur coats, women in Burqas walking some steps behind their husbands, joggers in Lycra speeding by, a homeless man with his daily drawings of horses heads.

Always something and someone to catch my eye.

I love my neighbourhood.
