Peter is my neighbour and his life is the same everyday.
He was born in East Ham and since 1966 he has lived on A. road, the street I moved
to years ago.
He loves the colour blue and this is incorporated in all aspects of his life: he dresses in
blue, the places where he usually goes are blue and his house is mostly blue.
He retired from work in 2000 and since then he follows the same routine every week.
Peter says, “I find that doing the same things and going to the same places gives me a
feeling of stability in an increasingly uncertain world…when something is good, why
would one wish for change?”
