Living Life Through Others

HS txted me to say she had been for a drink at London Bridge and had walked over the water at dusk. Its a beautiful view - the Thames at night. Long reflections of lights and lit buildings stretch out over the swelling water, banks edged by frilly architecture or buildings glowing pink or blue or stark white. Love the strings of bulbs hanging from those tres fancy street lights with fish curling round the bases that I think are old enough to be in pictures from the wartime of couples canoodling on the riverbanks. City riversides are often romantic, paticularly when they are pedestrian and therefore discrete and secluded with dancing light and the sound of water.
