The first Perfect Path podwalk on the streets of London since the explosions on the transport system yesterday, 7th July. My small contribution to “business as usual”.
I take a bus from Waterloo up to Holborn (apologies for the cut, I didn’t feel comfortable talking on the bus, nor did I feel comfortable about feeding you 6 minutes of bus sounds) and then walk up through Russell Square and peaceful parts of Bloomsbury. Pictures are on flickr in a photoset tagged london and podwalk015.
Today I will, like many other Londoners, just get on with what I do.
I found it hard to write anything much yesterday – shock and fear. I don’t know how much I’ll manage to share with you today, just take it one step at a time.
This morning I’m keeping two pieces of wisdom in mind. They come from men who knew a lot about cruelty and injustice:
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
