A few Sundays ago I went into London alone for the afternoon. It reminded me of my early days after the move when just me, my thoughts, and my iPod would go into London to walk with not much of a plan. The weather was beautiful, sunny but feeling like autumn. In the end I walked around the National Portrait Gallery, Proud Gallery, did a walking tour of East London, walked through Brick Lane and the Whitechapel Art Gallery and brought home bagels for A’s breakfasts, so it was a good ramble.
At some point in the middle of the day, my thoughts got the best of me, worrying about the economy, work, etc. I had to remind myself, it’s time to focus on the moment, let the rest just pass. I wish I could turn my brain off.
