City Pagans


I have always been happiest in cities. This seems an odd thing to say, but there is so much life in them. There are blades of grass and butterfly bushes growing in the cracks in the cement; sparrows and of course the eponymous pigeons. We once went to the Tower of London and the best part of it for me was seeing a peregrine falcon which had caught a blackbird. It didn’t really know what to make of humans pointing cameras at it with huge lenses.

The people who say that there’s no nature in cities really aren’t trying. In Britain there are always one or two parks and there tends to be more diverse species of trees than in the countryside.
