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)

Crazy to think that it's 100 years since the First World War started. Both an aeon away and yet only just out of reach of living memory.

And WW1 cast such a long shadow too.

maybe I should tag it - yes I will

I thought when I took it - there's a story here. Why in this corner. I thought about it as I walked the dog this chuchyard is maintained - presumably by Notts CC as it is within the bounds of Colwick Park. All the grave stones have been placed near the walls - that's why we went in there so the girls could play hide and seek. I think that when they did that one of the workman was touched by the cross and vase twig remains and rather than getting rid of them put them in this corner.

Thanks for adding, it is strange beauty. I guess you are winning the competition so far! :P

And I wonder at the story too. Are there lots of those crosses? One thing that still hasn't been solved very well technologically is the stories around places.
