I really dont want to write about this place…

I don'y endorse iPhones

I don't endorse iPhones

I started working at a mobile phone store when I started a Masters in Electronic Publishing last year as I knew that the job paid well (commission hungry bastards). I am intrigued by the interesting people I have met on this random corner in the heart of London.

A gem carver from New Zealand spoke to me of his love for a Mauritian woman he had fallen head over heels for. I sold a contract to a young and bashful athlete named Chris Clarke and yesterday I spoke to a man who was going to Cuba to celebrate his 40th birthday. He told me that he is visiting India in December to attend the Marballabh mela in Jalandhar with his tabla teacher. He was carrying the drums with him; the catalyst of the whole conversation. He also told me that he wanted to travel and learn to play as many different types of hand drums from around the world.

It made me think about my own life and what I want to achieve.

    It saddens me to learn that you’ll be leaving. Understand that I do not feel distressed because you are leaving the store, but because, and at least for me you seem to have a quixotic, and paradoxically, ubiquitous, sort of presence when you are in.
    And as one of the very, very few there who can hold a moderately interesting conversation. Well. Let’s just say that you will be missed, by me at least.
    Oh well. Nothing lasts forever, or so it seems.

    I wish you all the best, Seema.
