New Day

The first day of the new year was spent walking under a gray sky, in a fine mist which turned into light rain.  Stumbled across art near Kensington  Palace, and took shelter in a Victorian Queen's museum.  Dazzling jewels, hand woven fabrics, twentieth century furnishings -- collections from other eras and cultures, beautifully displayed.  Back out on the street, under a purple umbrella I walked past Harrods and pubs I frequented in my 20s.  Knightsbridge, Sloane Square, Chlesea, slick in the early evening rain.  The day ushering a new decade was calm and quiet.  My mood tranquil, relaxed and hopeful.
