I made a conscious effort to get out today – forty laps at pool this morning and a walk along the river this afternoon, starting at London Bridge and talking in an open-garden day on the barges moored near Butlers Wharf with their remarkable floating rooftop gardens and the newly re-hung Tate Modern where I was stopped in my tracks by the most stunning Miro painting I have ever seen. It’s been a beautiful early summer’s day, much more comfortable outdoors than in, a day refreshingly free from electronic stimulation and distraction and a very healthy and much-needed change of routine.
