What is it about some parts of this world that feel extra romantic? To do with history, happenings, residents that bestow upon a certain area an air of interest and cool…
[ezcol_1half]I’ve always felt that way about Bloomsbury, with its venerable literary legacy of the ever intriguing bohemian Bloomsbury Set encompassing some of Britain’s most exciting, revered writers, artists & intellectuals. Visiting places like this, that ebb with times gone by never fails to leave me feeling deepened somehow – resonating with and trying to connect & harness the forward-thinking, the experimental, the different. I know technology is so often seen as a real pariah to the way we live; turning us into phone zombies, disconnecting us from IRL, but I still can’t help but feel emboldened, invigorated and enlivened by the possibilities digital affords us. [/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]I do feel we need to remind ourselves to remain firmly in control and be strict with not being zoned in (or out!) too much of the time. But I have to say – for adults at least (and for the kids, the responsibly lies with us grown ups to reach best practice) don’t relinquish your autonomy and free will; ensure that you are the boss of your digital devices & apps and prioritise the physical space to ensure you keep up with your exercise, breathing the fresh air, staring at the sunset, allowing yourself to get bored. I often enforce this on tube and bus journeys to ensure my brain still has the time to wander freely and get bored, absolutely essential to any kind of creativity I reckon! [/ezcol_1half_end]
