Banality


Does a reworking of the Bible invite retribution?
I'm not sure. I don't have a faith but I would have thought that if you wanted to introduce someone to your faith, having something easy as an introduction would be more welcoming than something on the scale of the Bible.
I studied the Bible as part of an A Level course and we couldn't ever have fully studied the whole book in our two years.
Wouldn't this work as a taster before you really get into the big book?
Clearly this was kept in a book for years and I wonder what ever happened to The 100 Minute Bible....

London


London scares me, it just does. I think because I'm a bumpkin at heart I'm just not used to the ways of the big city.
Those Londoners move at a different pace. Round here we amble, we greet one another, we wish each other a good day. There seems to be no pace slower than a rush in London. When I move at my bumpkin pace there is a lot of tutting.
I'm sure they're lovely people, but damn they know how to give a mean tut.
All that said, I think London makes an awesome capital.
Look at those landmarks in their weirdly blue skies. It astounds me to think about how long they've been there, what they've survived.
Rather tickles me that the postcard was printed in Spain though...
