Where the cathedrals are blessedly cool, the art is hot, and musical irony abounds.
Good to have you back, even if you never left. We hope to return to the UK: IF the GD pandemic ever ends. Or mutates into something unimaginable. It always brightens my day to read your thoughts.
"And then, after an uncountable number of names were read and all those young lives were launched into this hot and unpredictable world..." makes one apprehensive and sentimental. So thoughtful an observation.
The Cathedral was spectacular, and congratulations to your granddaughter! Thanks for the first-person account of London in the hot hot heat wave!
In 1975 my sister and I travelled to Europe and London was part of our itinerary. It was the best! I was 20 and she was 18. We were too young to be afraid and had a glorious time!
