‘We are no longer in the fixed time of the telephone. Now we are in the time of the iPhone. A telephone is no longer just a telephone. With this you can send messages, take photos, take pictures, listen to music. If you use it like a telephone it is a telephone.’

A winter scene viewed from the train reminded me of the Teutoburg Wald in Germania, and the loss of three Roman legions under the command of Publius Quinctilius Varus in 6 AD.

Away From a Place

"The over-ripe, golden autumn which had taken hold of the town tugged at our heartstrings. The nomadic life makes you sensitive to the seasons: you rely on them, even become part of the season itself, and each time they change, it seems to have to tear yourself away from a place where you learned to live."
Nicolas Bouvier - The Way of the World
