London the home of a thousand glances, yet few smiles

14 Comments Living

Coming out of Liverpool street station wearing flipflops summer slacks and a brightly coloured hoody I was greeted by the evening stampede of commuters whose eyes rarely deviated from the floor, some so intent on their phones no doubt twittering their intentions to their unbeknown neighbour – that it was a miracle how spaces were not violated.

That space, those circles that Londoner’s surround themselves in has really taken the wind out of my sails. It’s like being at the zoo, observing a freak show of sapiens behind the safety of bars with a notice reading do not approach. Like a large thriving mass it feeds on decadence and paranoia, the novelty has worn thin, my enthusiasm waned.

I have thoroughly enjoyed myself, been out way too much, met loads of people, yet interestingly enough it’s been a rather hollow experience, few can step beyond those circles and past the bars.

Looking forward to returning home to Gomera, yet at the same time torn to stay – the pressures of Londoner’s are beginning to play on my conscious … ambition …or brainwashing … it’s certainly a greyer outlook on life.

    Sitting here, eating Amberjack, cooked to perfection by Mel, after a day doing nothing but recovering from drinking a bucket of sangria made by the loving hand of yours and our favourite gay barman.

    The whistling sound you can hear is your soul being sucked out of you by London.
    Return to paradise before it’s too late!

    I do surely hope that you share some stories of our London meeting Mr Stranger Sailor…? Our private impromptu (and world class might I add) Puppet Show @ Wiltons with The Duke Special is something I’m unlikely to forget ;)

    Even so that claimed some feel the present Butterfinger is not
    the similar as the first since when The Curtiss Candy Corporation was sold to
    Nabisco in 1981 legend has it that the original recipe was
    missing quickly soon after, triggering Nabisco to
    hastily develop a duplicate of the authentic as very best they could.
    Visions of sliding and breakage will dance through your head when you
    first lay your hands on the device. Or, if there
    are also numerous players to hear everyone’s response then spin a bottle so that only one
    particular player responds a query.
