hi dave,

i enjoyed the words of this post, especially the quotation from beth and this:

“I believe strongly in the agora and the souk, and the ideals of conversation, hospitality and exchange that they represent. But any place where you can’t get out into the country within an hour’s walk feels very alienating to me: too much otherness, too many strangers. ”

i feel i have been neglecting some good blogs lately, feeling ‘out of the stream’ and would like to jump back in.

guess i’ve gone off onto a ‘strange feed’ of my own – but I have been trolling distant waters and finding pearls!

thanks also for the ‘SAWN’ photos – write to the heart!
