It's always worthwhile to peek around the corners in London. I peeked around the corner of Westminster Palace (Parliament) and found Emmeline Pankhurst. Of course, I think her statue should be handcuffed to the iron gates that surround Westminster, reminding us all of what women went through to gain suffrage. You do not put Emmeline in a corner!

Laurence can be found in the vaults beneath St. Paul's Cathedral. In the altar space above is a memorial to John Donne, poet and Dean of the Cathedral in the 1620's, as well as a lovely Henry Moore Mother and Child.

This is Bedford Square, just a hop and a skip from my hotel in London and another hop or so from the British Museum. It's a private little place, surrounded by wrought iron, entered only by an iron gate which seems to remain locked. Not even the Duke of Bedford seems able to enjoy it, even though he's only a block away on a pedestal with a pigeon on his head.

If I lived up here, I could never leave. I'd never make it back up that hill.
