The listener exits a small shop on the side of Cannon Street. Instantly the peal of bells, calling the eventide service at St Paul’s Cathedral, meet the ears. Mixed with busy afternoon traffic and the warmth of the Autumn sun, an evening mist descends. Into the night, echoes of the bells wander through the imagination.
