Ce n'est pas merveille, dit un ancien, que le hasard puisse tant sur nous, puisque nous vivons par hasard - Montaigne

They took down this ancient tree in my neighborhood. I counted some 100 odd #treerings here. So it probably started life as WW I broke out? “I think that I shall never see/ A poem lovely as a tree.” (Joyce Kilmer 1886-1918 himself, coincidentally, a casualty of WW I.) #Dendrochronology #Photography

What is it about the relativity of time?! Immersed in a runner’s cocoon this morning I took a minor fall on a well-traversed route. Going from upright to doubled over, with my linear momentum rapidly converting to angular and worse, I finally came to rest on hands and knees. Someone stopped by and asked are you ok? And my first thought was maybe I should tell them that isn’t it so amazing that time can stand still. That, like, in fact I had been watching myself fall. Weird. Happily I didn’t. I said, yeah, I’m ok. The moment was gone. From so sublime to so banal. #bruises #zonedoutrunner

Twilight on Lake Grasmere of which Wordsworth wrote ‘Clouds, lingering yet, extend in solid bars/ Through the grey west; and lo! these waters, … ‘. This photo required a 2.5 second exposure. And poor contrast made it a difficult capture.

#GreatLangdalePikes - our innkeeper told us of the dangers climbing these #pikes a.k.a mountains. And, as if to prove the point, the very day we were here, sadly, a lead climber fell. #LakeDistrict #Cumbria #UK
