Empty Streets

Have you ever noticed how the world never seems to slow down? Everything always seems to happen at a breakneck speed. There are never enough hours in the day; never enough time to feel we are totally in control. It feels like if we can only finish that last job and we will finally be on top of everything, only to have that feeling snatched away when we realise there is always one more job to complete, always one more task to undertake.

Under the bridge

London is full of surprises. Sometimes, these surprises are hidden away from prying eyes, behind walls and high fences. But, just as often they are in the most obvious of place, in broad daylight for anyone to see, providing they look. The Palace of Westminster is just such a place.

Memories

I have lost count of the number of times I have found myself standing on this very spot, staring up at Big Ben. It brings back so many childhood memories, as I remember the feelings of wonder and excitement, as I waited for the famous bells to chime.

Many years may have passed since those childhood days, but the those feelings are just as strong as they ever were.
