Didn't think I’d someday google "busking regulations in London", but when an idea gets incepted in my head it morphs into an all consuming force that demands everything. A best and worst trait. And the idea was to find out how quickly I can think on my feet and write w/o editing. As I unrolled my mat, set up my “desk” and wrote on my Primark bags by the River Thames, I felt the gazes of passers-by on me and at once realised how vulnerable I was. For the first time in my vocation as a writer, my work was going to be judged in real time, without the proxy of an e-mail account. I would see it on their faces, and I was terrified. But before I could process that fear, a little girl came up to me. And then others. But by putting my own vulnerability out there today I became so incredibly close to the vulnerability of others, their kindnesses and idiosyncrasies. None of us are “normal”, we’re all busted! We can quit pretending! Today it was FOC but the next time I'm broke on the road you bet your sweet ass I’ll take your quids London.
