4 May 19: In praise of Liberty

Where are your ‘feel-good’ places?

Where do you head to when you’re feeling flat, melancholy or in need of recalibrating after your cage has been well and truly rattled?

Naturally, I go to somewhere that’s bursting with colour, texture and life, like @libertylondon (even Oscar Wilde loved the place: ‘Liberty is the chosen resort of the artistic shopper’, he said).

I find it’s like an exercise in sensory displacement, knocking negativity out of the way with thoughts and sights of beautiful things. It’s not an instant panacea, but the reparation has begun.
