I’ve been wired for a couple of days. Getting through it. Getting those last things done. Sick. Home sick. Tired. Ready for my own bed, my own space. (Your arms around me.) So today I crashed. My bags are packed, I’m ready to go. I’m waiting for the taxi. The sky is grey and the random playlist I chose on M’s iTunes offers a perfect stream of introspection.

‘Would you lie with me and just forget the world’*

And I just feel sad and a little removed. Like if I can just get through the next couple of hours, I’ll be ok. That this lonely feeling is just the grey sky and the empty house. That doing this on my own again is just for today.

    I’m sure London will miss you – it will become quiet.
    Never mind, tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life.

    D. There’s no place like Cape Town and Obz, especially the coffee and bergies.
    Don’t you just wish that star Trek’s transporter excisted??

    Enjoy your 12 hours of agony!!!

    the pleasure of going to London twice in the space of two weeks last month. Like some old wise guy said, “If you are tired of London, you are tired of life.” Welcome back anyway!

    Ja, I’ve heard that too….but I bet that guy had never been to Cape Town in the Spring…

    and Ta….am doubly delighted to be back

    wasn’t too bad, actually – and I was reading a great book (filled with salacious stuff) so the hours passed quickly enough….

    …Viva iKapa indeed! Viva!
