Paddington at Night

Today, I’m so grateful to be walking around London. Last night I went to a favourite place just behind the post office in Paddington. Its like a canal with modern apartment blocks towering into the distance.

I remember the nights sitting there, waiting, contemplating and thinking something HAD to happen in my very mundane life. The lights in the very high apartment blocks switched on and off like a 70s disco checked floor.

These lights reminded me that someone was still living. Also it reminded me just what a lonely place cities can be.

While walking around, the hymn “All is well” came to me and has stayed with me, reminding me there is nothing to fear.

There is a great peace, yet a slight sadness in that place.
