Road, return and airship.

Some beautiful things that have caught my eye this week:

1. Road bones. Gleaming black rocks push through the beaten mud surface of an unmade track.

2. I like to come home from a walk just as it starts to rain.

3. We watch a documentary about the Graf Zeppelin's flight round the world in 1929. It is narrated with extracts from the diary of the only woman aboard -- the journalist Lady Grace Marguerite Hay Drummond-Hay.

    2. I love that too - I made it home just as it started to snow today, the first flakes cold on my cheeks - perfect timing as it was sunny when I went out on my walk and I wasn't wearing a coat :D

    3. What was fascinating about that documentary was the way her personal account of her affair with her colleague on the flight, was woven into the strictly jounralistic story. Quite remarkable.
