Falling in love with the UK, falling in love with the “darling”, “love”, “sweetheart”, “marvelous”, “excellent” – how effortlessly sweet-sounding, mood-lifting 🙂
falling in love with time, and the slow ticking of every second (a shadow of anxiety lingers – please don’t let this end)
So many films to watch, books to read, movies to download, tv shows to catch up on, things to understand – the USSR, Lenin, Scotland’s independence just off the top of my head now, and maybe a couple of North Korea documentaries.
Can never quite get over the ball of nerves that toss around frantically upon take off
Bye for now, London, I think to myself as I watch the Lilliputian cars swerve around th e curves
I’m going to be so terribly sad on my last flight. I know its nearing, it is. Im trying hard not to think about that.
