London, Lace & Ludovico Einaudi

 I was in the Brick Lane area of London last weekend.
 Look at these beautiful laces I picked up.
This is a tiny selection of what I got.

While I have a look through my treasures I am listening to my new CD from the concert I went to at the Barbican.  The music of Ludovico Einaudi was so powerful I thought I was going to stop breathing at some points. No wonder it was fully sold out every night.
