Well it’s the morning after the birthday before and I’m feeling hungover and old, as Ben Folds says. The sun is shining but its windy, and I am tucked in the library. People have mobile phones in here and they shouldn’t. I’m actually trying to smile at people, and be nice to them. Its hard work, I can tell you!
Some days, at dinnertime, if I’m in the city, I go and sit and listen to one of those mad preacher men who carry placards proclaiming “the end is nigh” etc. What is most impressive is that they are sure of their own destiny, and unwavering in the beliefs. This same man is there every day, and the other day after I finished my sandwich and left, he said “so long my friend, enjoy all the sunshine you can get” which was such a nice thing to say to me, a total stranger.
I’m going stop writing now and go for a wee walk now, to see if Mr Preacher is there!
