Good stuff...

Everything was beautiful as I walked over Hammersmith bridge this morning. The moon, a massive, peachy-gold orb somewhere over Chiswick, was setting in a rich and welcoming blue sky. To the other side of the bridge, the lights of the planes flying overhead reflected clearly in the river, a milky blue from the promise of day break to the East. Birdsong was perfectly audible even over the constant drone of the traffic. A tree, its turning leaves backlit by a streetlight, appeared to be dripping gold. The air was crisp and cold. Despite a day at work beckoning, I was left with the impression that, at that particular moment, life really couldn't get any better.

All that from my short jaunt over the bridge - I guess I must be in a good mood...

Womderful...I saw the moon too...as it hung in that rich and welcoming blue sky. Its light licked me from the other side. Thanks for the good mood :)

And, just to add, I have linked to your character under uncast002...
Stay well!

But Why? said...

RedEyes (if I may be so bold...),

Thanks. It certainly kicked my day off to good start (things only started to fall apart when I got to work...)

I have been able to make up my mind...you'll be the beautiful Spy character for starters... :)

That was beautiful. I should have expected it. The way you describe racing is utterly there. I should have expected nothing else in your description of walking over Hammersmith bridge at the crack of dawn. Thank you. R

Rob C,
Having been rudely awaken by the alarm at silly o'clock a.m., I was exceedingly pleased to find that it wasn't in vain; that in the first hours of the day, even London can appear beautiful...
