London, the city of free and colorful lives
Exhibition: “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.” Samuel Johnson
Those that come from all over the world and have ended up in London somehow know that living in London is a different kind of happiness. There is the happiness of having experienced a few good things in all those crowds in people’s eyes. Everybody does their thing peacefully all the while experiencing the beautiful things life brings as they are running around. It is as if there is a secret order and everybody is a happy part of this order. Some flung themselves to the prairies freely, some fish, some read a book, some walk their dogs in the greenest parks, some have fun, some scurry to their work. Living in London is a different kind of happiness.
