Gathered together

Stories hidden in a crowd

Unfold in silence

Quietly observe

New kings rise as old kings wane

        I know!!! It’s so fascinating!!! I don’t know if you have ever seen it, but the BBC did a short film makers series a few years back. The music (no words) is combined with people clapping in rhythm whilst only looking at people’s feet (on a busy pavement)as they walk. Viewing one, then as they meet with another going off with another and so on – so many stories from feet only – brilliant
