The South Downs

I went on a 11 mile hike with the South Downs Society today. We walked all the way from Hove to Falmer. It was awesome! The weather was quite strange, one minute we were braving heavy rain showers and the next we were struggling to stay upright against mighty gusts of wind! After the walk, in the early evening we went down to the Brighton sea front and the sun came out! It was very very hard to take these pictures on my W800i, I had bang my camera a number of times and keep my fingers on the lens while focusing. Sadly I think its very very close to giving out!!

Birds in the Sky

Do they not look at the birds, held poised in the midst of (the air and) the sky?
Nothing holds them up but (the power of) God. Verily in this are signs for those who believe.
 The Quran (Chapter 16 Verse 79)

Kingdom of Pain

A storm is coming, Frank says
A storm that will swallow the children
And I will deliver them from the kingdom of pain
I will deliver the children back to their doorsteps
And send the monsters back to the underground
I'll send them back to a place where no-one else can see them
Except for me
Because I am Donnie Darko

Dungeness Lighthouse

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.”  
The Alchemist

On the Road Again

On the road again
Goin' places that I've never been.
Seein' things that I may never see again

And I can't wait to get on the road again.
On the road again -
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends.
Insisting that the world keep turning our way

Willie Nelson

Then I see a Darkness

And then I see a darkness, 
And then I see a darkness.
Did you know how much I love you?
Its a hope that somehow you,
Can save me from this darkness.

Winds of Change

“The winds of change are always blowing
And every time I try to stay 
The winds of change continue blowing
And they just carry me away.”
