This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery."
........ Rebecca Solnit

"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."
........ Isabel Allende

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs - ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
........ Harold Thurman Whitman

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."
........ Marcel Proust

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.. you have no such accurate remembrance of a country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle...."
........ Ernest Hemingway

"Ambition leads me not only father than any other man has been before me, but as far as I think it is possible for man to go."
........ James Cook

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
........ John Muir

"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
........ Iris Murdoch

"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture...."
........ Don McCullin

who could put me up for a night on 9th June?

There is a NACER workshop in the Christie Hospital on June 10th for physios working with people who have had lymphomas that I want to attend and if possible I'd like to interview the organiser the day before as well http://www.nacer.org.uk/

should also say that I'll be slightly weak but perfectly healthy - chemo won't have started yet and I'm recovering well from the op. Also I'd rather sleep on a hard floor than a soft bed.. which has probably lead to interesting speculation at the hotels I've visited...

(this series was taken for the Focus Assignment #5 but didn't get posted because Sprocket kept drinking his coffee.. )

Apart from the oncologist, this is the first person I've talked to who makes sense!

thanks and will do

I am George thank you. While there is some lymph around the wound (which is natural since it's only 3 weeks since the op) my arm is mostly fine and I'm doing my best to make sure it stays that way. No thanks to the NHS, whose physios have given me conflicting advice and appear to have been trained to believe that lymphodema is either not preventable and 'just something that happens but don't worry we can manage it' or preventable only through frightening people into total inactivity

I'm on the Wirral. It's not as close as Warrington, but you're welcome to stay with us.

OJ says:

Just seen this.

We're in Liverpool. It's about 50 mins on the train (which goes through Warrington, so kyoob is indeed closer).

I'll be in Newcastle on the 9th of June but V will be there if you need.

That is correct Jigalong :)
Thank you lilitiger and OJ, but at the moment, unless my energy is really low or I get lucky it's looking like the Kyoob's place (or should I say J and K's...)
