Ten years ago someone asked me what my favourite part about Winchester was, and I answered, «the catherdral.»
And I still feel mesmerised by this ancient structure that stands there so proudly. The windows were once destroyed and yet, people gathered the broken pieces and rearranged them, a beautiful chaosof of unfitting colours and shapes. The floor is crooked, and do not trust these walls. All those small imperfections that show just how desperately people want to live. How little effect war and destruction have on our need of beauty and light and divinity.
They say that Winchester is the hometown of Camelot.
I believe it.
