I would like to ask you if you miss, sometime or very often ☺️, a city as much as I miss London.
To me it is a kind of nostalghia or , as I learned in Portugal , the “saudade”
a strange , deep feeling inside your stomac, in your heart growing every day a bit more until it reaches your throat & hurts you
usually starts in the morning with the first cup of tea remembering those hot cups sipped in glam coffeeshops or by Fortunm & Mason , in cosy old tea rooms & the mind start going …. crossing the streets I know as those here in my birthplace Pistoia , walking in Green Park , stopping on a wood bench reading TimeOut & looking for a concert to listen to in a pub tonight …
a very normal life of a Londoner as I want to feel as a local again , not a tourist , as I was when I lived there for almost a year in 1983-84 working and studying there & dreaming about my future.
London : a world of opportunities , if you want to change your life, make new experiences , have a different life , just leave everything here & fly away!
That’s what I did when I was 20 & could never forget the feeling of being part of a world that changes every seconds but it is still the same since centuries, if I close my eyes everything is here again, inside me
perfectly untouched : a broken dream to be remade one day & everytime I fly there everything seems to start again for me
a new start , a new beginning
so sweet, so funny this morning my daughter told me : mamma , I miss London so much !it’s such a long time I didn’t see it ….when are we leaving?
happy to see how such a deep feeling can be passed from heart to heart from mother to daughter as an illness or …a blessing? 😊😍👍
Enjoy some of my picts from my last trip ,about one year ago , and yes , definitely it’s time to go back & breath !
