Pure Delight

My “Spitalfields Life” book, inscribed by The Gentle Author arrived in the post this morning together with a little card which said:-

“Over the coming days, weeks, months and years I am going to write every single day and tell you about my life here in Spitalfields at the heart of London.  How can I ever describe the exuberant richness and multiplicity of culture in this place to you? This is both my task and delight”.

If you have never read Spitalfields Life , then I urge you to do so.

I so agree with the comment of a reviewer on the back of the book

This book of Spitalfields Life will do more to celebrate the people of London than all the Olympic billions.

If only I could write half as well as The Gentle Author, or indeed, Mr Longshanks Scribbler – never mind – the joy is in the reading.
