“And a Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square” - song written in Le Lavandou and made famous in 1940 by Vera Lynn.
Cheery cherry tree blossom on the trees in a road in Barons Court as I walked past on my way home from the tube station back from Heathrow airport.
Ironical how lovely London looks when there is this crisis building around us. The heart-warming sight of the cherry blossom reminds me of the song lyrics “And a Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square”, made popular by Vera Lynn in 1940. And by bizarre coincidence, the song was written and first performed in a bar in Le Lavandou, where I was also in a bar, just this Saturday past..
The trees will survive, so will we.
The urban jungle, a confusing checkerboard construction of squares that aren’t, false perspectives and humans. What is real and what is just in our minds?
My contribution to this month’s RPS Contemporary Group’s topic: “The Real and The Unreal”, with fond memories of the graphic art of M.C. Escher and the paintings of L.S. Lowry.
