So here I am doing a 12 hour night shift after a bloody long journey back from that suburban sprawling monster called London. Now if I wasn't depressed before my brief visit the capital city of this kingdom I bloody well am now. Now I may be just from a small town in Wales but at least I have some idea of how to conduct myself. But in our cosmopolitan and supposedly vibrant capital I have never seen so much rudeness, self preservation not to mention the lack of the simplest of common courtesy. Not one bugger down there gives way, says please, thank you, good day or kiss my arse. I have never encountered such a miserable and down trodden collection of lost souls in my life. If this is what living in the big city does to humanity then you stuff it where the sun doesn't shine! One glimmer of light from this visit....I was accosted in the street by a pleasant enough young lady from 'friends of the earth', of which apparently I'm now a member....which is nice. Oh and I also got some more ink on my flesh after a dinner time visit to some seedy shop....just some script to remind me of something when the fog is crawling its way around my soul...two words only....... Small Steps.
