Planning a journey

As autumn comes can spring be far ahead? We’re deserting our main idea for the coming summer, which was camping and buying a 500 Euro tent to place out on a camping site. Most likely we will travel to Scotland or the Orkney Islands once more.



For Lust of Knowing


[Lost in Durham ]

We travel not for trafficking alone;
By hotter winds our fiery hearts are fanned:
For lust of knowing what should not be known
We make the Golden Journey to Samarkand

(James Elroy Flecker)

Looking back...

At the moment I wish I could be here. Far away from where I am now. This is King Edward’s bay in Tynemouth. A really friendly place. Nice. Today I resigned from my work and I know I will never see that place again. I closed one door so another door may open. I look upon my future and I can’t quite see it. Once again I must journey. I’ve got my compass, I’ll navigate. I’ll try to be open to all things new.
