This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle I no longer despair for the future of the human race"
........ H G Wells

"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better"
........ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery."
........ Rebecca Solnit

"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."
........ Isabel Allende

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs - ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
........ Harold Thurman Whitman

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."
........ Marcel Proust

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.. you have no such accurate remembrance of a country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle...."
........ Ernest Hemingway

"Ambition leads me not only father than any other man has been before me, but as far as I think it is possible for man to go."
........ James Cook

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
........ John Muir

"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
........ Iris Murdoch

"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture...."
........ Don McCullin

It begins

(viewed 862 times)
Only 5 sessions left.. I imagine I'll be counting days and hours till recovery soon though.

I feel fine but tired. Tired might be due to the stress of the day, because I got up at 5ish (as more-or-less-usual) or it might be because I decided to do 20 minutes on the exercise bike. I'm now waiting to see what happens next while hoping/praying that what happens is nothing.

Instead of the hour I was advised we were there from 10:20 to 6ish (I was too intent on getting out to take a note). 3.5 hours of the delay were due to the pain I felt every time the poisons were introduced at what other people must consider a reasonable rate.

Apart from the records thing, there was a 'we haven't had your perscriptions signed yet' thing (they only had 15 days so must be massively underresourced), a 'oops we forgot about the cold cap thing' (despite my reminding them in the introductory talk) and a 'the head nurse is getting the tyre on her car fixed' thing... although not in that order

First time my images have been used for regular public entertainment - they will be featured regularly in Negracha (probably the largest tango venue in Europe)

Last time I'll be leaving the hair salon with long hair
