what’s happening?

london 6.58pm wednesday 2015

I passed by the victoria coach station this morning on my way to the library and saw a huge long queue winding round the building. and these people were laden with bulky knapsacks. what’s up? i guessed it must be the glastonbury crowd going there, and sure enough when i googled it to find out when it starts, it starts today to 28june. the farm it is being held is quite remote, so i guess these are special buses. they are all young people, not a grey hair in sight.

i dont envy them. all that mud is not what i like. haha. and you can hardly hear any music and what u hear is mightily distorted. it is the atmosphere, i know, and meeting others of like mind. i get it. but i am mighty glad i am not one of them. haha.

added. 26.6.15 found out it costs £220 for the whole weekend for glastonbury. and all 135,000 tickets sold out in 26mins. amazing really!!!

i wanted more salad ingredients, so decided to take the bus 38 to soho, where there is a co-op supermarket in brewer’s st. they are doing a special promotion of 39p veg, and whilst there i saw a cauliflower reduced to 55p. the lettuce was what i wanted. iceberg lettuce are simply the best salad ingredient. it is the crunchiness of it i think that appeals to me. it is tasteless, that means it just picks up whatever dressing you put to it. i use the tesco basic mayonnaise, which i think is the best mayonnaise i have tasted. the vinegary taste of it is just right. i have beetroot and melon at home, ( tesco is doing a special on melons 69p each no matter what the size, and the promotion has just started i think, because i could see some huge sizes in the pile, and got to pick the biggest… haha. the price is not based per kg)and added to the salad they make a fantastic combination. that is the nice thing about salads, they just allow you to add any thing u can think of , simon happened to have some ham, so i added to it as well. just perfect.

thank goodness the westend has nothing happening, so traffic was flowing smoothly. it is fascinating to see the waltz of the traffic flow, with the traffic lights changing just when the road ahead is full, and so allowing a gap through which  the contra flow traffic can proceed without obstruction. this is in piccadilly circus. whoever set up the timing of the lights must be a genius, unless of course they use sensors that tells if the road ahead is full, and changes the light. i would not be surprised if that is the case, computers can do things like this so easily dont they?

of course there is the usual pedestrian mad men who just walk across the street without looking. these two tourists, a man and woman, must be from america, they just blithely walked in front of the car, near trafalgar square; they were saved from being mowed down by the car braking sharply. but they did not even reacte, not even look round , just carried on walking leisurely looking in the opposite direction to traffic and  facing straight ahead, like they own the road, or like they  were not even aware of their near death escape. tourists!! and they joined their friends on the other side and start posing for pictures. haha. blissfully unaware at all of their near death. their souls dont want to leave their bodies i guess.

i am afraid i too am guilty of this unawareness. and i have to say it must be my soul and the other driver that dont want us both to be involved.

it was on another day it happened.  it was near the sainsburys in pimlico. they have a car park with an exit and entrance that is quite hidden. usually i am aware of it, and pause before i cross to make sure no cars come up from the underground car park, but this time i was day dreaming, and walked right across the entrance and only when i was midway did i look to my right and saw a car coming towards me. it was far enough not to have to break suddenly to avoid me, and i thank my soul and the other driver’s for not wanting to kill me. a few  second later and i would have crossed just when the car is on me. i dont know why they dont put up something there to warn pedestrians of a hidden exit. but it does make me think that if the soul wants to leave the body it will engineer it, and that is that. if it does not, than you will avoid death by a split second. or it goes the other way, and u just hit that point at the same split second that the other comes up to it. what are the chances of that happening do u think? of all the seconds that u can both miss each other, and there are plenty of those seconds, but no, both chose to hit that spot at exactly that one second…. if u tell me that is not the souls wanting it, i wont believe you.

i was thinking about my life, and i realise i have the life of a rich man. just consider this… i have all the time in the world to do nothing or everything. i have no one to tell me what appointments i have to make, nor responsiblities i have to shoulder. my time is mine to spend as i wish. isn’t that the mark of a rich man? or rather what is the point of being so rich if u cannot even have a fraction of what i have? right?

    i too am glad that i did not get killed. i enjoy not working, but i think a lot of people wont like this kind of life. people like to work, and keep some kind of structure to their day, and they feel useful. but mostly they miss the money they can get from their work, esp if their work is highly paid and they are used to spending and have a extravagant lifestyle. they forget the stress of working, which unnoticed creeps up on them. until one day it all hits and they suffer a nervous breakdown.
