Dear Reader of Sabrina's London Diaries: I went to London in September 2008 just for a 3 week vacation. I was in my third semester of Graduate school, getting my MFA in Creative Writing at Goddard College and writing a Musical. On the first night I arrived, the man I went to visit, told me, " I'm sorry your not the one !" I decided to not go home with my tail between my legs and decided to make the best of a bad situation and live there.Being what I laughingly, call, " dumped upon arrival", was the best thing that ever happened to me, I took my feelings of rejection and remorse and turned things around for the better.I realized this man was not my enemy, but my manivater ( a man that motivates) and catalyst for making me do my Human Revolution! I ended up living in London for two years and it was the best two years of my life !
This blog evolved from someone telling me that I should write about my experience in London. One year and a half later, I am still writing about my experience in London.I came back to Los Angeles in 2010, after a 2 years sojourn in London, and I found that it has changed so much.But, it's like in the movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Benjamin Button, says in the movie as he narrates his story, after he comes home for being gone so long and traveling all over the world, " It's not that Tenessee has changed it's that I have changed." And, so,it's not that Los Angeles has changed so much, or even America, it's that I had changed. My views andperceptions of life and the world have changed along with that and I will never be the same. Living in London has changed the way I see the world, and now the way I see myself in the world and that is why I must share what I learned !
Living in London for me, was an absolute dream come true. In my blog, I live to tell the tale and I am still telling it after all these years, and plan to publish my memoirs.
