Travel Frees Us from Prejudice

This is exactly what I’ve felt for a long time. Finally I have found a quote for it.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.

Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It


Aaaarrrrr!!! :D


The most effective way to cope with change is to help create it.

All the fun that $2 can buy

A Good Run

Have been having a good run with photos of Clare lately. Well, just two photos actually. But I really like them.

Wildcat Hill

How glad I was to return! To return from noise, dirt, stench, hurry, to the sea and cypress.
The machine it seems to me should give man a life of leisure, time for inner expansion,
instead of the terrible maelstrom engendered.
