This was the view I had as I merrily rowed (she’s lying she struggled and rowed around and around in circles before getting jammed in the waterfall!) on the flourescant green lake on the roof of Londons famous department store! What? Read about it here…http://aveganobsession.blogspot.com/2011/07/sugar-lake-in-sky-to-truvia.html
A trip to London was sorely needed. A fortnight ago I had been on a mission. I felt fired up, creative and my kitchen was a foodie’s palate, wafts of wonderful aromas snaked around the walls. I tried, tested 21 recipes in 7 days for my food blog. http://aveganobsession.blogspot.com/2011/07/sugar-lake-in-sky-to-truvia.html
It was fun, kept me occupied, gave me purpose, my right and left brain worked in harmony. This week I had challenges of a different kind…I was up and down like jumping bean. Hella happy….directionless….engaged (in life..not the rock on my finger, starry-eyed kind)….lonely…productive (began the outline for my submission letter to a publisher for my postcard book)….fruitless (took up many distractions to not finalize it)….confident and then vulnerable. Argh, I needed to get me to London, to people watch, snap little squares of life, to flaneur, to be inspired by art, buildings stained with exhaust fumes, wonder at £1000 handbags in designer stores, and be full of LIFE. I went. It was a tonic. I was renewed! Oh to have even a fraction (a sizeable fraction) of the £161 million pounds won from the Euro Lottery by a couple in Scotland this week! I would have chic apartments in the cities I love, go to places where life tumbles and twists outside my door.
I love London
