Flakes of the life of a sensate man; random notes and pictures that endeavour to capture capricious thoughts, largely of unreasonable and mysterious origin, before they leave forever the wandering mind of a life pilgrim stumbling towards the point where parallel lines meet.
“Give me the sensate mind, that knows The vast extent of human woes!” M. Robinson Angelina II. 1796

New Year: Sunrise
This winter solstice happened, according to anthropotime, close to midnight GMT last night. Here we are two hours ahead of GMT. The Greek sun was at its most southerly declination at close to two o'clock this morning making this, the 22nd December, the first day of our new year.
This morning, unusually, cloud hid from me the wonderful spectacle of the rising sun , denying me one of my many daily joys, but I saw the sun's light and know there is promise of more to come.
