Continuing with my May 2014 diary. You can see the finished piece, here.
Today I saw a man wearing a ‘Jesus Loves You’ T-shirt.
He was standing at the bottom of the slope at Waterloo East Station.
I had spotted him before my train had stopped, and I guess I was still looking at the slogan when I got off the train. He saw me staring, and shouted, “Yes, he loves you, Jesus picked you.” I smiled at him, but he scowled and headed off up the slope.
The back of his top read ‘But He Doesn’t Love Me’. It was hand-written in marker pen.
The picture of Jesus was taken from Pancakes and Painted Eggs by Jean Chapman. It is illustrated by Kilmeny Niland. I bought it in the ‘Worn-Out’ book section at Bromley Library.
