London is Burning


This building in Tottenham District of North London
stood through the bombings of World War II.
Taken down by rioters in 2011.
Heartbreaking.

"This melancholy London-
I sometimes imagine that the
souls of the lost

are compelled to walk through its
streets perpetually.
One feels them passing
like a whiff of air."


William Butler Yates

Jenny might have the opportunity to play her clarinet with the UVU Symphonic Band at the London Summer Olympics 2012. I'm having second thoughts.

This is breaking my heart to pieces. I love London, and it makes me sad to see these things going on. I wish I could be there to help with the clean up effort.
