Annabel. Fuzzy heads, powered by Nordic Bakery coffee and cake. Catching up, shooting the breeze, sharing stories, dreams of dogs, ideas that might become real, might not. Just do it. Laughing. Croque Madames, juice and tea.
Talk of Kangaroos, imaginative play, resolutions, children books, why it’s brilliant children can think differently from adults, pygmy goats, hydration, South East Asia, palaeontology popstars singing songs about animals, focus, travelling inflatable planetariums, seasnakes, rainbow cakes, learning to play the ukulele, spacesuit silver rucksacks, trifle. Making business cards with made up job titles – rollerskating waitress, astronaut. Be more present.
Blue skies. Hyde Park. Clouds drifting overhead, surrounded by rollerskaters, feeling the sun on my face, reading and sighing over the beauty in Flow magazine. Watching huge bubbles drift over the lake and not burst when they touch the water. Feels like spring is here and life is waking up after winter. See your worries disappear like bubbles.
Walking down Marylebone High Street, window shopping. Daunt books. Wanderlust. Books full of places I’ve been and more to see. Sacred places. Places to see before you die. Berlin street style. Anticipation. Excitement. Conrad shop. Play. Colouring books for adults of gardens, cities, heart throbs, atlas poster on your wall to colour in. Swoon.
Home on East London Line. Mind buzzing. Soothed by youth lagoon on my headphones.
A snapshot of my day.
