Creativity & Community on London's Eel Pie Island - Little Observationist

The first time I wrote about southwest London’s Eel Pie Island was back in 2010 when I stumbled on this magical private community by accident on what happened to be an Open Studios weekend. I wrote again in 2013 when I returned intentionally to dig a bit deeper into the history and the stories of the people who work there. Most recently, I wrote during summer 2016 about another visit. It was during that visit that I connected with the island on another level through a chance meeting with…

Petersham Nurseries: A Pretty, Peaceful London Escape - Little Observationist

This blog is bursting with blooms lately. If you came looking for the gritty, grimy side of London, you’ll have to wait for another post because this week I’m bringing you to the beautiful Petersham Nurseries in Richmond. Jorge suggested a visit while my parents were here from New York last week. None of us had been before. We were dropped off near the entrance by a pathway lined with English hedgerows running alongside an old church and a cemetery. You know how much I enjoy walking through…

Stories from Central London - Little Observationist

I’d nearly forgotten the silence of the rush hour commute. I’d forgotten the gentle sway of hundreds of thousands of black-clad bodies trying to maintain a sense of personal space as trains rush them to their destination through the bowels of the city. There are blank stares, eyes lost in another world that plays out on the small screens of iPhones and ink-smeared fingers paging mindlessly through the stories in the free newspapers that are later left on the seat for another reader. Almost…

An Asian Lunch at E&O in Notting Hill - Little Observationist

I thought the winter coat was about to hide away for the spring, but Saturday proved me wrong. But with the chilly temps and spitting rain, it turned out to be the perfect day to while away an afternoon in the cosy, dimly-lit warmth of E&O in Notting Hill, sipping on cocktails while plate after plate of delicious Asian food arrived at our table. Jorge kicked it off with a Clover Club (bombay sapphire, lemon juice, egg white, raspberry) and I went for the Lychee Martini (finlandia vodka…
