Westminster Abbey

Today we visited Westminster Abbey and took in the glory of much of England's past.  A patchwork of memorials and tombs, of architecture from the 11th century to the present.  Historical traditions that have been continued since it's founding are still being performed: coronations, weddings, funerals, some in the same furniture and configurations.  Feeling time and its stretch from then to now, and the way that new additions to history are still welcomed within the walls.  London seems to be filled with time and a reminder that we are creating what will be written and discussed in the years to come.  That as we live will in some way be set in marble statues, set in stone.
