Miss / Bliss

by James Glazebrook

Absence really does make the heart grow fonder. We were struggling to think of what we missed about London when we made our first return trip a few weeks ago, but now it’s come flooding back. Friends, family, facilities – all the stuff you take for granted when you live with it every day. But for every thing we pine for, we can think of another that it’s bliss to be free from. Hence these two conflicting lists: to paraphrase James Murphy, London, We Love You But You Were Bringing Us Down.
