I have so much admiration for those having to face incredible hardship to escape war and persecution, to give their families a future. And for those working so hard to help.

This museum commemorates the 1.35 million people passing through this centre alone, as they fled from East Germany to West Germany. That situation is over, yet the same scenario plays out again and again, in Germany and around the world.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Abstract


One of the most amazing dinnertime views ever. Sitting outside, on the top deck of a floating restaurant on the Danube, as the sun was setting behind Buda Castle and Fisherman’s Bastion in Budapest. Unbelievably beautiful!

Not a great picture, but I snapped it on my phone during a brief lull on a busy evening. So many people arriving at this reception centre, looking for a future. A future so different from all they’ve known and left behind. Grief, loss and hope entwined. Laughter and tears, uncertainty and determination. And oh so much resilience.

Landscape – the rolling hills of England. Not very dramatic, maybe – but oh so beautiful!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape



I WANDERED lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o’er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

(William Wordsworth)

I am the Good Shepherd.

The Good Shepherd puts the sheep before himself, sacrifices himself if necessary.
