Line(s) of the Day #InTheAirTonight

In the Air Tonight cover

Well I remember, I remember, don’t worry, how could I ever forget
It’s the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, oh no you don’t fool me
Well the hurt doesn’t show, but the pain still grows
It’s no stranger to you and me.

Taken from the song In the Air Tonight by the English musician Phil Collins, from his debut solo album Face Value (1981). The brooding song, accompanied by an atmospheric video and featuring a fantastic drum solo, is still considered the former Genesis star’s definitive song.

The recent Hurricane Ophelia led to a rare red tint and some stunning skies. I just had to share my photographs with you. Do you have a favourite?

Things to See: Wimbledon Tour

There was so much to see on the Wimbledon visit I had recently that I had to seperate it into two parts. This post will focus on the guided tour (you can find my experience of the shop here), which takes you around different courts and the overall area. As there was so much to see, I’ve reviewed the tour in a non-linear way so as to group the photographs better.

Line(s) of the Day #FreaksandGeeks

Freaks and Geeks beers and weirs

All my new friends think I’m some goody two shoes and all my old friends think i’m throwing my life away.  What the hell am I supposed to do?

Lindsay Weir (Linda Cardellini) in the short-lived but highly acclaimed high school comedy drama series Freaks and Geeks (1999 – 2000). Relating to the show’s main character, the quote sums up the stuggles she faces trying to fit in, a regular theme.  You can find out more detail about the episode the line is taken from, and more context of the show overall, here.

Line(s) of the Day #ToAutumn #Yeats

Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too –
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,
And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue

From the last stanza of To Autumn by the beloved English romantic poet John Keats (1795 – 1821). Despite his hugely untimely death at aged 25, Keats is still considered one of the greatest ever poets. You can my other favourite lines from his Ode to a Nightingale poem here.

The snowflake never needs to feel responsible for the avalanche.

Taken from the book So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by British journalist Jon Ronson (2015). The non-fiction work features examples and analysis of mostly non-famous people experiencing the full impact of being shamed through the media, particularly online.
