When I want to succumb to something beautiful, mysterious and strangely reminiscent of my childhood home, I walk past South End Green and up Parliament Hill. From here I take the measure of the city and turn away to explore the length of Hampstead Heath. I wander the well-scored paths past broken trees, through calm dells and I smile at my fellow conspirators who share this scene with me.
