This might be the wrong expression for what I'm going to go blah about but I was reading in the paper at the weekend about a memorial being put up in kennington park in South London for a 100 unknown victims of an air-raid bombing in 1940 that they just covered up in lime and forgot about. I felt a bit strange reading about this as when I used to work near Oval on some secondment in January this year I used to 'take' my lunch in the park and stroll round in the chilly cracked pathways looking over at the saddened housing blocks that look mournfully over the park. I used to think that the area felt really 'sad', so much so that I'd go home with a deep impression every night for about 2 months thinking that it was just an area of deep gloom regardless of the housing/deprivation etc, so reading this on Saturday confirmed something in recent times had occcured.
I'm thinking that human beings can pick up on something tragic from the past without even being fully aware of something having happened. Would anyone agree/give a shit/check on youtube?
