Does anyone know where this is from?  It is rather good.

a day off walking one of the valley and the ridges in one of those bits of Worcestershire, close to here, but no one seems to know.


the wonders of late Spring: bluebells in the woods, wind stirring the winter wheat like a sea, the first swifts of the year, a grass snake in the sun.

And the pleasure of walking with a good friend.


I’ll let you decide which one of us is which.  But it’s worth carrying a rucksack as big as that for high tea.

Bom Caminho!

I’m not sure of the source of this photo.

I would also like to point out that my whisky is not ice cold.  It comes with a choice of a little water, an ice cube or nothing.

dragging it uphill

I’ve come across this rather good picture,

in English, from The Sayings of Light and Love by St John of the Cross:

The soul that journeys to God, but does not shake off its cares and quiet its appetites, is like one who drags a cart uphill.

or perhaps those of us who are walking pilgrims might think of the times we have carried too much in our rucksacks.
