A random early morning musing from a while ago now...

Just been Looking through some old stuff and came across this, wrote it on a coach one early morning driving through London:

It’s amusing that at half six in the morning nobody has anything to say to each other, each sits there in stoney silence entombed in it, cocooned thinking dark thoughts and cursing that there is such an early hour in the morning. 


Driving through London now, 8:19 in the morning the city is fully awake, hoards of black suits meandering along in the half light.  My elevated perch on the coach allows me to peer into office windows, some are still empty, keyboards waiting to return to the the ‘click’ ‘click’ as their keys get pressed in and out, phones quiet anticipating their first ring, photocopiers cold from the night  anticipating the coming warmth emitted from the passing green light. 


Others, have a few early birds scattered at their posts, drawing up to their desks, shuffling their chairs forward, reaching to turn on the blackened computer, ‘another day, another dollar’ you can almost hear them sigh but it is Friday so it’s alright.. 


So many different people, some hurrying, some strolling, some just stood waiting and some running. An early morning jogger, earphones plugged in a barrier against the world for now its just him and his running, his only thought to get to his destination, him and pain, pain to just get there. 


A young women in her 20’s, converse stark white against dark tights, a slip of purple dress falling beneath her coat, worn brown satchel slung around her shoulders, off to pursue some creative dream for the day. 


The city awakes and inhales a deep breath, in the night it has exhaled and now it inhales and grabs it breath and life again for another day. Friday is in the air.'
