I’m back from San Francisco! Two days of being wined, dined and waited upon by Microsoft, followed by meetings with Google, Mozilla and BitTorrent, topped off with ONE WHOLE DAY of respite. After two 11-hour flights and hopping back and forth through eight time zones, I can safely say that six days is not long enough to take in everything San Francisco has to offer. I didn’t visit a single museum, nor walk along the Golden Gate Bridge. I bought…

This is what I call a missed opportunity. Standing at the highest point around, stuck behind trees. No way out, no clear view of the fjord. A soft, tangerine glow reflecting off the water and filling the air. Stuck behind trees. Evening birds tweeting, my friend gently tugging at my arm, leading us towards our destination. ‘But the fjord’s over theeere!’ I swear, I can stick out my bottom lip like a frackin’ petulant heroine when necessary. To put this…

I’m still way behind on things, after being away for the weekend, so I’m simply going to wow you with lots of pretty photos — and a vaguely interesting breadcrumb of information. First, the anecdote, about horses. I was talking to a cute Welsh birdie about horses, as one does, and the talk quickly shifted to the topic of herds. There were lots and lots of horses in the New Forest, but all in small groups of two or three…

Heath horses & Paws for thought. Seb: As always, a bit of scary synergy occurring here — it’s almost like ‘and here’s a close up of the horse…’ I was up on the New Forest this weekend! I didn’t get a chance to take many photos, but the few that I took came out well. William the Conqueror planted the original seeds of the New Forest, and now it’s just a lot of scrubby heath land with lots of wild…

This is my house, just before we moved into it. The photo was probably taken in 1995. I’ve almost forgotten what grass looks like. What the sun looks like. What frickin’ daylight looks like. Europe is currently the land of eternal twilight. Admittedly, I wake up around 2pm so I’m not doing myself any favours, but the cloud coverage is so thick, so ever-present, so OPPRESSIVE that it just stays DARK. The only patch of sunlight was a few days…
