Sunset 31 July 2021 - JAYNE GROSS
I was a bit fearful going into the Shelter following a close family bereavement the last thing I wanted was to be alone with my thoughts.
But I should not have worried. The sights and sounds of the City grabbed my attention immediately.
My Vigil was accompanied by a loud pub band somewhere below playing Queen, Meatloaf and Bon Jovi covers. At times I found myself singing along.
After taking in the magnificent view I began to focus on little things like why are there two empty disused train compartments down below me? Why is there a two-seater tan leather sofa next to them? Why do three windows in a nearby building flash red, green, purple and blue but the other 57 (I counted) don’t?
And then my hour was over.
