I am planning to go to London this weekend as a treat to myself for working so hard over Easter and as a way of recovering from stress. As a book nerd I plan to explore as many bookshops as possible. I can't wait! I love just wandering around London; there is always so much going on and it is the perfect place to people watch.
"The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day. That is real freedom. The alternative is unconsciousness, the default setting, the "rat race" - the constant gnawing sense of having had and lost some infinite thing." (David Foster Wallace)
