#110 Goose Green

Up the road from where I live, there is a row of shops. As you walk towards them, you can see the city skyline on your left. The roundabout near the main road has some kind of tree in the middle that looks just like a big pineapple or something.

If you carry on going past the shops, you come to the foot of Peckham Rye Park. There is a large grassy area. One morning, I got up at six thirty and went straight out there. It was foggy and by walking out into the grassy area, I got lost in the fog. Surrounded by nothing but fog, a small circle of grass at my feet.

There are often runners circling the park. Big ones, small ones. The faster runners go to Brockwell. It has a better running route, if you don't mind the hill. There's another park not too far away which is mostly a big hill. I think it has a small playground on the top.

There's a cafe on the way to the station that puts out a different message each day in chalk. They're always about coffee. The cafe often has tradesmen or labourers sitting outside. I wonder if they're having breakfast before work or if they already started their jobs and are on a break.

It would be interesting to have breakfast with colleagues. Perhaps.

I think some people who carpool to work, do go through drivethroughs together for a mc muffin and coffee. At least that's how I vaguely remember the ad.
