    Well said pansy.

    Just stood in the garden for my minute.

    Did they tear it out with talons of steel
    And give you a shot, so that you wouldn't feel?
    And washed it away as if it wasn't real?

    I was in John Lewis at 11am near the coffee shop - all very busy and bustling with people shopping / chatting / laughing / going about their business.

    At 11am they announced all partners would stop what they were doing for 2 mins and the whole shop fell instantly and wonderfully silent & still.

    Very respectful. Strangely moving.

    I kept quite and still for a a few minute and just looked outside.

    Good for them. image

     

    Does anybody else find crass the modern habit of clapping after two minutes' silence? It happens at fottball matches particularly.image

    Quite moving - having that one on it's own. Last year I sowed some and they didn't germinate. Did some more and just one came through. More poignant somehow. 

    I got a bit frustrated at work today. No one acknowledged the two minute silence except me. Was hoping nobody would ask me anything as I wasn't going to answer. image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....


  • I clapped Diana as she came down the Harlestone Road on her last journey in fact there was a round of applause, that might have been crass I suppose but it beat just standing there watching her coffin go past like some gawper, it was probably all a bit over the top but there you are it won't make any difference now will it!
