Throw away the key

The idea behind love padlocks is pretty sweet. I’d never known that there are apparently some on Tower Bridge in London, so I’ll have to go and check them out someday. These ones in Prague were just lovely. A short walk from the John Lennon wall, tucked away on a tiny bridge over a sidearm of the Vltava, I just wasn’t expecting to see hundreds of padlocks overlapping and intertwined on the railings. It was a nice surprise.

Sweet sweet girlfriend

I have been lucky enough over the past year or two to form new friendships and rekindle some old ones. The way I relate to women has changed dramatically because I’m no longer in such unrealistic situations with them – we don’t see each other every day, we don’t compete against each other in an intensive private school environment, and we don’t cling to each other in the panic of first leaving home. It feels much more like I’m able to appreciate the women in my life for what they are and what they do. We had a girls’ dinner in my flat last night and it was brilliant. We sat out in the garden for hours giggling away over copious amounts of food and red wine and pondering life, love and the universe. It was new for me, but I liked it.
