London

Touring

Day 1.

It’s fun to be in the hustle and bustle. We washed our clothes at a laundromat, ate fish and chips, drank beer and marveled at all the people. People in pubs and people rushing down the streets.

London bridge is not falling down

Falling down

Falling down

London bridge is not falling down

It’s a hoax

The world’s not flat it’s perfectly round

perfectly round

perfectly round

The world’s not flat it’s perfectly round

It’s no joke

The time has come to make a choice

The time has come to make a choice

You’re social or you’re anti

Day 2.

The Romans wanted to inspire their youth to fight and possibly die as heroes for their Republic; England continues the tradition. Inside St. Paul's Cathedral the walls were lined with memorials to soldiers who died in war. The crypt with marble sarcophagi of Nelson and Wellington. More war heroes to inspire.

We climbed, dizzy, to the top of the dome with my father and looked out at the glass and construction of the enormous cityscape below. My father knew many of the names of the buildings and landmarks. Fit as a fiddle he climbed and descended nearly 400 steps. We spent the day with John and Jean, ate Ottolenghi’s delicious garlicky food and had a good time together.

By candlelight at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre we saw Love’s Labors Lost. We laughed and laughed and were thrilled by brilliant actors.

The walking ape

And burning man

Has learned to rule

These many lands

He’s carved and crushed

The Earth, its sands

He’s burned its trees

And drained its lakes

The walking ape

And burning man

Considers he’s so very grand

But, the walking ape

And burning man

Will one day

Have to take a stand

As the air he breathes

The water he drinks

Will take his life away from him

The walking ape

And burning man

Will one day, not be

So very grand

Day 3, 4, & 5.

Family, reunion, forgiveness and friends.

London city of changes

It lies on the edge of another direction

People will come and go, buildings will be demolished or decay in time

But know you hold my past, my memories and my family

I love you and goodbye
