Somewhere else

Even though I'm too tired, too fat, too scruffy to leave home. Even though I lack clean clothes and need a hair-cut. Even though I'm not really here enough to have a clear idea of being elsewhere. Even though I seem to have lost touch with wanting anything. Throwing an insufficiently thought-out and probably just plain insufficient selection of clothes and books and techie bits and pieces required for work into a small back-pack. Leaving tomorrow for a week (not very far) away, escaping the migraine-inducing paint fumes that the otherwise pleasant and considerate decorator is about to start creating in the confined hall-and-staircase space outside my front door. Perhaps a small detour to somewhere else will be... something else.

Meanwhile, Happy Thanksgiving!

Bon voyage, Jean. Hope it's a restorative trip.

Hope the 'getaway' is restful and restorative, the weather nice, and the setting inspiring enough for some more of your gorgeous photos.

Have a good break! It can clear ones mind a lot: something different, even if it's not far away. Even a day out! I went to London today from Oxford and was amazed at all the new buildings going up as you go into West London. Good to keep in touch with the old place!

Yes, anywhere 'away' is restorative, the journey even more than arriving. Enjoy it, even if it rains!
