Look at us. Running around, always rushed, always late. I guess that’s why they call it the human race. – Said by Wally Mars in The Switch

A  great quote opening the movie Switch, unfortunately the movie was’t that engaging later…

Strolling Through Greenwich Market

Christmas…that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance…a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved. – Augusta E Rundell

Where does the journey begin and end?

A journey, after all, neither begins in the instant we set out, nor ends when we have reached our door step once again. It starts much earlier and is really never over, because the film of memory continues running on inside of us long after we have come to a physical standstill. Indeed, there exists something like a contagion of travel, and the disease is essentially incurable.

You better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I’m telling you why, why?
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list
And checking it twice
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

“Ignorance is the night of the mind, but a night without moon and star.” Confucius

The air has a chemical taste
I cure my fear by breath from your lips
Inhale again
And I hold that smell in my lungs
And I’m afraid of every day
That the ice under our feet can break
And what will wait for us on the road?
I don’t want to think anymore

[...]

No matter what comes
You want it or not
There won’t be always like this
A new day is raising up

Old Man And The Sea

Language… has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone - Paul Tillich

24 SunSets

Yesterday’s glare of the Sun
A badly developed snap
A time woven with  hope
A frozen smile
Memories skulk
like a wild beast
wink their eyes
ready to gobble me
when I think that I will forget

I would like so much
to tread softly in space
to be able to visit myself
in the past
not so distant

Crazy Cow

The friendly cow, all red and white,
I love with all my heart:
She gives me cream with all her might,
To eat with apple-tart.

Knight Riders

Most have been forgotten. Most deserve to be forgotten. The heroes will always be remembered. The best. The best and the worst. And a few who were a bit of both - George R.R. Martin, A Feast for Crows

London Bridge is Falling Down

Life is a bridge. Cross over it, but build no house on it.

Crossing London Bridge its significance never occurred to me. A bridge like any other, in fact one of the most ordinary bridges in London.  It cannot compete with Tower Bridge which can be well seen from London Bridge.

Even though I have heard a nursery rhyme about London Bridge Falling I still did not understand why it could be an important Bridge, any more than connecting two sides of the river banks.

Till today… while walking alongside the south bank I found an inscription. It seems that Old London Bridge (which was located just next to the current location of London Bridge) was built by the Romans in AD 55 and it was the only bridge in London till 1790. Its history seems to be extraordinary. See below:

And moreover, there is going to be London Bridge Museum open below the bridge itself.
