Head Space For Sale by Giles Ward
When you meet someone with a blank expression it’s hard not to judge. I sometimes tap them on the forehead and ask to come in. No, I don’t. I don’t have the nerve. There are 20,000 empty homes in London. But that number is only an estimate. So, maybe the curtains are drawn so I can’t see the television in the front room. Maybe they are watching The Blue Planet and dreaming of diving the ocean. It’s hard, you know, to see a head left empty. There are 170,000 without homes in London. But that number is only an estimate.
