Exploring close to home

“Tomorrow morning before we depart, I intend to land and see what can be found in the neighbourhood.”

– Christopher Columbus

Morning on the Thames, London, October 2020

It’s time for a weekly quotation-inspired image.

If the quote inspires a pictorial or wordy post from you, do feel free to link in or to pop your URL in the comments.

    • It was sounding good until the “this a well”. But it’s not so different for me. I’ve got lots of new houses, a busy road and then the M25 motorway. Or walk 45 mins into St Albans itself. And then 20 min train into London. I’ve Beene into London a lot recently, while I can. But as lockdown tightens again I won’t be doing so much of that 😐

  1. Thank you for the quote from Christopher Columbus. It helps me feel a bit better about him, while there is a lot of hatred for him going in in the states presently.
    I wish people could find the good in people. ❤️🦋🌀🙏☮️


  2. As a non-morning person I’ve always liked this quote:
    “I’m a New Yorker, and 7.00 a.m. is a civilised hour to end the day, not to start it”.
    Sonia Sotomayor (Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States)
