listen very carefully

This last Saturday afternoon I listened to a record album.

It was a genuine piece of vinyl, pressed in 1982, 1983. It was Paul Simon’s “Hearts and Bones”, and this copy had never been played before. 21 more words

Bucket List

London 2014: Soho, Seven Dials and Denmark Street

Friday afternoon we take a tour of Westminster Abbey and attend the Evensong service, complete with seats in the Quire, the area behind nave. Afterward we ride the tube to Covent Garden (where the trains lets us off 150 feet below street level and there is an insane wait for one of the two elevators that services the station), eat supper at Shake Shack in Covent Garden, and finish off with a leisurely walk back on crowded streets through 7 Dials, Denmark Street, and back up Charing Cross to Great Russell Street and home. 1,339 more words

My Little Town
