I've never been far from the river. I'm sort of like a Thames-nymph.
I was born in Oslo, Norway, but now live in the suburbs of Southwest London, right near the River Thames. It's a lovely part of the world.
To ancient Chinese fancy, the Milky Way was a luminous river, - the River of Heaven, - the Silver Stream.
If my critics saw me walking over the Thames they would say it was because I couldn't swim.
