A thought from Macfarlane via Tony Birch

Something to send you on you way ...

'For some time now it has seemed to me
that the two questions we should ask of
any strong landscape are these: Firstly,
what do I know when I am in this place
that I can know nowhere else? And then,
vainly, what does this place know of me
that I cannot know of myself?'

Robert Macfarlane - The Old Ways


  1. Good luck! only a couple of days to go. What is the weather forecast like?

    1. Weather forecast is mild, some showers. Perfect really... although this is Melbourne and all could change in a breath.

  2. When I go forth on such a pleasant day,
    One breath outdoors takes all my cares away;
    It goes like heavy smoke, when flames take hold
    Of wood that's green and fill a grate with gold.
    W. H. Davies
