I traced the spring to its source
And thought differently
I have only visited Westminster once and found it completely different to what I had imagined. Having only seen it full “Coronation mode” on television I did not realise that there are the most astonishing assortment of side chambers and chapels with relics from throughout its thousand year history. I would have gladly spent more time there but our tour guide was determined to show us the Houses of Parliament that day so whisked us through this labyrinthine edifice and I cannot disentangle my memories of the various wonders.
I do recall some particularly charming medieval floor tiles and walking over a number of tombs of the literati but who exactly I could not say.
I still cannot quite see the honour associated with being buried under a slab which the congregation and now thousands of tourists trample over daily but should this blog one day be recognised as genius and my sad remains be interred in Westminster I am sure I would not mind being walked all over.
