Brit Blog

…a great city is a kind of labyrinth within which at every moment of the day the most hidden wishes of every human being are performed by people who devote their whole existences to doing this and nothing else. Along a road there walks a man with a desire repressed in his heart. But a few doors away there are people utterly devoted to accomplishing nothing but this desire…
When I discovered this, I was almost tempted to think that I had stripped bare my deepest wishes and found that others shared them and that even if this were a kind of hell, perhaps it was my destiny.

-Stephen Spender, World Within World

    That’s the bad thing about blogs–you use them as a way to keep your friends updated, but then they’re all affronted when they have to get the news that way.And yes, I’m affronted. More about London!!

  3. This certainly deserves elaboration given what you’ve told me.
