The monuments and memorials of the kings and queens may last. Not so for most of us.
A reminder from the sundial in the Pump Court of the Middle Temple:
A walk beyond the busyness of St. Paul’s cathedral finds a little park, Postman’s Park. Once one of the largest burial grounds in London, tomb stones are stacked around the edge of the park, emblematic of the sun dial’s message.
I borrowed an interesting book for my trip to London. Walking London by Richard James. Following the tracks around back streets of London took us to areas of surprising peace amid the noise and conjestion of the tourists and business of London. I know I’d probably be the last person walking around with an actual guide book in my hand, as opposed to a digital version, but this little gem has taken us off the regular track and pointed out things we might not have noticed or known the story behind.
