belonging



Back at college today. Not so good. I won't bore you with the details, but I found some of the things the lecturer said, professionally quite offensive. I kept quiet - wasn't in the mood to challenge her - and when the lecture was over I decided to go for a walk rather than catching the train straight home.
What an idiot! No camera. The late afternoon sunshine illuminated the Victorian terraced houses in the narrow streets behind Waterloo Station. As I walked on towards London Bridge I passed small cafes, art galleries, a community theatre, all in a fabulous, eclectic mix of architecture. I stopped feeling stressed and upset and started to smile.
I love London.
Next week I'll remember my camera.
