ancient meets modern

Place: Nottinghill Apartment

Poison: Flat White

Favourite Things: Travelling through Europe

We made it to England, with not much peace, quiet or rest. I love it though…The thing that has made me take stock is the way the ancient meets modern throughout all of the european cities I have seen. From the antiques to the bright hair colours in portobello market, to the London Bridge, coupled with grafitti…I am spell bound.

Yesterday I spent time in the Cathedral of Notre Dame and stood dwarfed under the Eiffel Tower. It was such a humbling experience to see monuments to days gone by. Europe totally lives up to its reputation. As it sped past on the Eurostar, I wanted to jump of the train and take a whole year just to sit in a village square and contemplate the landscape.

Looking at the size and the details of these masterpieces, makes me so introspective of what I am creatively living my life for. These masters who spent centuries upon centuries, dedicating their lives to these ancient masterpieces must have had the endurance of saints.

Today I am off to Hillsong London and am so looking forward to just hanging out in the presence of God and his people.

Bring it on!

  1. Ha

    Bright red mohawk haircuts bobbing through the crowds at the portobello market… leather jackets and pin cushion piercings…

    brings me right back to my youth and pinching over ripe mellons from the market stalls and throwing them randomly into the crowd…

    that was back in the swinging 90’s I was only a litle street urchin… sweeping chimneys for a farthing… chim chimeny, chim chemeny, chim chim cheroo…

  2. Irish!! Hey Hey Thanks for the flat in Nottinghill its so cool. Judith is so lovely and its just a train stop away from everything. Watched the changing of the guards today at buckingham palace, and walked through trafalga square minus the pigeons, with a black south african preacher belting out the direction that we were all headed STRAIGHT TO HELL!!
