anathem, analemma

a sunny afternoon

Get on a bus instead of the Tube, it is a rare instance of a sunny afternoon in London and you wouldn't want to spend it entombed in an Underground carriage. Funny how even after all these years this, the feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin, the bright sun light, the fact that amidst the long faces of the Londoners you occasionally see a few more smiles than normal, this still feels like the natural order of things, instead of the normal London nine degrees centigrade, murky drizzly skies and the shroud of grey that permeates everything. If only.
