trying to do something else out of the rut.

18 May

london 11.40am 13.6C cloud. wednesday 2016

flowers are bursting out everywhere around me.

the bluebells , cherry blossoms are now gone, but in its place are a lot of others. taking their turn to show off as it were. they are the bright spots in my life. other than them, not much seem to interest me … friend telling me of his holiday in sicily do not make me wish i was there. and a naturist website conversation with a member who likes my post which i wrote a long time ago in my profile about going to studland bay; but it  does not make me wish i was going there now.

so i have been going into the world of the books i have borrowed … the earthsea trilogy and geek love. trying to go into a make belief world. i would like to go further into the corfu trilogy, the world of gerald durrell’s, but today when i wanted to renew the book, i saw someone had booked it so i had to return it. nevermind, i can find it again in future , so that world i can keep safe for another time. 

though tonight i shall go to see a film , part of the herne hill film festival … to see uncle boonme thai film. perhaps it might be interesting. … at least it gets me out of the flat and out of my routine. sometimes i do get stuck in a rut and take the easy way… so it is nice to have these film festivals of free films that they show in shops for people to gather and see…

i dont seem to be able to allow veiwers to enlarge the pic if it is a solitary picture.



but if i post two pics, it comes up like this and then it can be seen in its original size.

added 7.50pm 13.3C cloudy . the fact i am writing this now would show that i did not make it to the film.

i did arrive near the time, but it is a restaurant and all the tables were occupied, with diners. the screen was right in the same room, just a  room with a huge glass window to the outside which we can look in . the organiser was quite apologetic, saying they rely on businesses to volunteer their premises and obviously it is business as usual and some have booked tables , presumably for meals, to make sure they got a place. and he said they allready have to pay £150 for the film, so they do rely on the businesses to give them the premise.

well, it is quite understandable, after all everything is free…. so i did not see the film, but it did get me out of the flat, and as i have to change buses at brixton, it was lucky that i decided to buy ginger and chili while waiting in between buses.

i have run out of those two veg, so it was good to get them. i was at brixton  around 6.50pm and many of the regular shops were shut. whilst the eating places were opening and gearing up for their night diners.

waiting for the bus i saw continuous streams of people coming out of the brixton station. such a busy place, and so much traffic. in the bus i could not help noticing a lot of people were having long hair tied up in buns. the women have natural hair, the men have hair extensions, tied to their crinkly hairs. i could not help wondering how they slept. that bun will make it real uncomfortable to lie flat on the back , they will have to sleep with the head on the side surely… i was thinking ah humans, go on and make your life difficult why dont you , as if life is not difficult enough allready.
