“For Jane Austen and the readers of Pride and Prejudice, as for Mr. Darcy, [Elizabeth Bennett’s] solitary walks express the independence that literally takes the heroine out of the social sphere of the houses and their inhabitants, into a larger, lonelier world where she is free to think: walking articulates both physical and mental freedom.”
~ Rebecca Solnit


Windy Thursday at Gravelly Beach, Tasmania. Apres’ yummy Fish n’ chips from Hooked on Kouklas. No Chocolate Cake or Coffee for the Puppy, poor puppy.

“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
