Jungle London   2 comments

Spring has tipped into summer. London is lush and verdant with the long rainy season. I am struck with premature midsummer madness after walking for 10 miles through the overgrown jungle that is this city yesterday. I dreamt of jungles.

I woke today and spent the day in a daze, unable to concentrate and longing to be outside again. I left early, walked from central London to where I live in the west, dropped my work stuff, pulled on my walking boots and kept going for miles and miles. I could not get enough. I wanted to dive into this early summer and roll around in the grass and then spend the next month camping by the river like a child of nature.

  1. Can I come, too!! Geeze, you described that so beautifully, I want to put my shoes on right now and go for a stroll outside. But alas, it’s raining at the moment. Dang it.
