I was browsing through London pictures and stumbled upon this one - me in Trafalgar Square. All I really remember from this day was a lot of walking and it getting a bit on the chilly side. I wanted to sit next to this fountain because a. I love fountains, b. It had a mermaid on it and c. I was tired and my feet hurt.
Katie asked me if my wish came true today. Thinking back to when we threw our coins into the center. To be honest, I can't remember my wish. Is it lost? Did it go to a place of forgotten fountain wishes?
I have a slight idea of what the wish was - or maybe it was more of a plea, or prayer. One 'wish' that will remain locked in the attics of my mind. Because, even though I don't remember the exact 'wish' - I do remember how I felt that day, in the sqaure, with the mermaid.

don't be afraid, she said
no one will know it
just you and me
and when it's over
i'll go back
