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)

I'm not (quite) the flower fairy but I have a book... Could it be wild basil?

I have books and I've image searched purple wild flowers online - I tried a search but didn't have enough details so will have to go back and get more info. It was a single flowernot part of a cluster and stood a foot off the ground so the flower was maybe 1.5cm long.

Trawling through mauve flowers on firstnature.com - I think it's a balm, a member of the mint (Lamiaceae) family. The nearest I have found is bastard balm! The leaves are right and the flower has lots of similarities. Genus melittis.

It seems this pretty flower is a pest (himalayan balm) especially on riverbanks!
Apparently it has explodin seeds.
