"The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience."
I'm writing this as I have a few minutes between castings on this busy Wednesday morning. It's been a terribly busy past few days, what with working on Sunday, exploring the city some on Monday (there was a holiday), and now getting straight back to work.
When I actually have a moment to sort through my thoughts, I'll update a small preview of my job done Sunday in Brighton! For now though, I have a handful of pictures taken from my little adventure in London earlier this week.
I had heard there was a festival happening in Little Venice - a true English affair complete with about 130 boats drifting through the small street waters, a small Italian band, endless foods and sweets to sample, and a simple enclosed garden where you could sit, enjoy the sunlight, and people watch for hours.
I spent quite a bit of time simply enjoying the sunny weather and chatting with the local street vendors, until after a few hours I headed off to do a bit of shopping on Oxford Street - which was a massive mistake. There's hundreds of thousands of people on Oxford Street daily, much less when everyone in the city is on a holiday. I ended up finding a few cute new things, so I guess it's not all that bad in the end. Just bothersome more or less. Now, if only I could actually go to Venice for a day!
