one strip of history

This is the view from the top floor flat that I used to rent in London. Every time I looked out the window, it made me realize that present is right at the end of one continuous strip of history, which is a very rich feeling that is rarely felt when living in cities like Tokyo where most of the buildings have been destroyed during the war, and where scrap and build approach dominates with everything driven by money.
