October 1, 2017 (Posting on November 4, 2017). I forgot to pack my journal in my suitcase so that I could refer back to it for the details of locations and identification of places. Since I don’t want to wait another month before catching up on Wales posts, I’ll return to the posts later with the information I leave out during the next month of posting.
On October 1st I left London and caught a Megabus to Swansea, a beautiful coastal town in Wales where I taught the first workshop. The bus left from Victoria Square Station, a pleasant walk and bus trip from my hostel at London Bridge.
These blue men brought back memories of my days “buildering” in Boston, training for the rock climbing trip across the country with my brother in 1976.
Arriving an hour early at Victoria Square Station, I had time to explore the neighborhood through the sprinkles of rain, dragging my suitcase along behind me.
As the raindrops plopped onto the sidewalks, they called my attention to the patterns created with the utility covers.
The raindrops became more frequent. I returned to the waiting room of the bus station.
