I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

Runswick Bay Sun 7th Dec

(viewed 738 times)
a lovely bright if still frosty morning - no wind
went to the beach with Alan my sister and husband and her 2 daughters, 4 week old Theo and Ian who took my pic
the path to the beach was knee deep in mud - the cliffs are clay boulder so this was incredibly slippy
to get to the beach we had to climb over the rocks - everyone made it except Alan who decided to opt out, gamely I went on - Paddy (cleaning his shoes I think in the picture) held my hand, but could not stop me slowly sliding off the rock into a muddy crevice! If you look carefully I am wet up to my armpit!

Last post from Tunisia.. sitting on the communal loo in the roman villa at Dougga

(viewed 713 times)
The wonder of Dougga/Thugga is its size 65 hectares and preservation. It is a UNESCO world heritage site - "the best preserved Roman small town in North Africa and as such provides an exceptional picture of everyday life in antiquity." It has temples and theatres, a forum and markets, baths and villas, all standing in remarkable repair on a mountainside overlooking a beautiful valley.

Details and pictures can be found here
