London walk

'London perpetually attracts, stimulates, gives me a play and a story and a poem, without any trouble, save that of moving my legs through the streets...To walk alone through London is the greatest rest.'
Virginia Woolf

Have a good weekend!

“At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done, then they begin to hope it can be done, then they see it can be done--then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries ago.” 
Frances Hodgson BurnettThe Secret Garden

Rainboys bunnies

Missing my rainboys, able to generate rainbows
whith their unique endless energy...

Sun is cold and rain is hard,
I know
Been that way for all my time.
'Til forever, on it goes
Through the circle, fast and slow,
I know
It can't stop, I wonder.

Rod Stewart, Have you ever seen the rain

Picture This, picture books exhibition at the British Library

(Picture from the British Library website)

Loved the originals in the exhibition: Quentin Blake, Ian Beck, Kenneth Grahame...
And the display was amazing.

Rainy mind

Helpless she lies across the stairs
Haunting your days, consuming your prayers.
There will be healing but don't force this girl to stand
As she's counting the ceilings with pale voice and trembling hands

You told me life was long but now that it's gone
You find yourself on top as the leader of the flock
Called to be a rock for those below

I'll be locked up and stored
In the lavender ward
'Cause my mind is just like hers
Just as broken just as crippled just as burned

And then I find myself on top as the leader of the flock
Called to be a rock for those below

Mumford & Sons, For those below
