London Bridge Is Down (Of The Emotional Life of Nations)

As seen in London the days following the death of Queen Elizabeth II (2022)

The Queen is dead. The Royal sailors, not the elite corps, escort the coffin. The new King follows. The ancient ritual, so out of time, is surprisingly powerful. Like all rituals, made so that the people can see. See that the world stood the shock and is ready to enter the unknown smoothly, peacefully, immediately. Everything flows around the ritual: the procession, the mighty army, the endless queue. People seem hungry for meaning and stability. Only behind their many eyes, as if peeking through somebody’s windows, one can catch a hint of it: history’s frightening turmoil. It cannot be seen, but can be felt running across the people queuing like veins through the city: the cold wind of unstoppable change.
