a sailboat on the norfolk broads, about this time of year, late at night when it feels like you're the only person in the world.
my bed, at pretty much any time.
mid-afternoons spent in proper pubs with real beer, a fire, an old guy with no interest in conversation at the bar and a dog walking round the room.

Long tube journeys in the middle of the day. 30 minutes when you don't have to work or think, just sit and read and travel.

places of refuge
then . down in our treehouse in the trees , stream rushing by just below big open field behind fairly looming ...
Early evening Swayambunath Temple on monkey hill above Kathmandu ,
having listened to the ceremony inside , then the monk kids singing outside , shadows filliing the valley .
Behind and to the North of the temples , white Himalaya so high they are up in the clouds above the town
Eating green curry on Phi Phi Island after floating in the water a couple times during the day,
snorkeling careful under the tour boats , peaceful warm waves on beach, insects frogs chorus
drop the mosquito net

My home here , storm lashing rain tonight

i suppose all cities have these weird anomalyous places. this spot cardigan square is in the middle of these council estates tucked in between oval and the embankment. i was just cycling home in a random manner, trying to get lost and stumbled upon it. very ghostly/empty. its almost too perfect. (estate agents get busy innit...)

Thats about five mins from where I am. I think quite a few MPs live there as its within the sound of the division bell.

st dunstans between monument and tower hill. a church with no roof and a garden inside.

yes, was in there about four weeks ago, stopped off on my way to bunhill fields to have a wander round the dissenter's cemetary

if someone could tell me how to actually embed images in a reply i'd post a picture or two of st dunstan's. unfortunately every time i try to attach an image it tells me it is too large

Make sure the image is no wider than 6-700 pixels and you should be ok - and of course they have to be Jpegs/Gifs...
