This Moment of June

“In people’s eyes, in the swing, tramp, and trudge; in the bellow and the uproar; the carriages, motor cars, omnibuses, vans, sandwich men shuffling and swinging; brass bands; barrel organs; in the triumph and the jingle and the strange high singing of some aeroplane overhead was what she loved; life; London; this moment of June.”
— Virginia Woolf, Mrs Dalloway

This was one of my favorite narrative moments on the wall outside Abbey Road Studios. “The Beatles is a family story, thank you guys, thank you Dad ♥”

Second week in London, spent time on Abbey Road, did a walking tour of literary Bloomsbury (where we’re living), and started reading Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway. Next up: Liverpool. Loving every minute.
