Annie Lennox checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@annielennox) on Monday (June 28), discussing the love she has for her hometown of London, England. The Eurythmics singer writes:
I have genuinely come to appreciate London.. the city I arrived in (39 years ago for goodness sake)..staggering, suitcase laden off the overnight train from Aberdeen, at the mystical/ ungodly hour of 6am .. greeted by the strangely familiar waft of warm tube station dust, blowing up from the guts of the Northern Line.
London is a globe within the globe.. A massive melting pot.
We are all here.. the entire world population, reduced to a massive city.
It is a vibrant/focused/ diverse/challenging/stimulating and inclusive.. place to live.
For all it’s weaknesses and strengths, London embraces everything and everyone..
