wow, it's lovely...i can almost see a lion roaring next to the sun...

What a find. Another memento to take with you upcountry.

Don't know if this comment will work - having FF crash problems.

Belated Happy Birthday! and what a great gift you've found for yourself. Our garden pathway includes some fossils in sandstone rocks we've brought up from the beach. They never fail to elicit a sense of wonder, putting my life in perspective.

That is a lovely stone. It is very like a sun, isn't it, a motif I am very attracted to. I saw a sunfish once off the Cornish coast when out fishing with a friend and felt especially lucky.

Hope the rest of your birthday was equally sunny and full of wonders.

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
