For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move. ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON

Hey, That's My Kind Of Music ! (8)



June Tabor Aqaba

I shall celebrate my 800th post with one of my favourite songs sung by one of my favourite singers - Aqaba (written by Bill Caddick) from June Tabor's eponymous album. In case you don't know what's going on in this song, it's about TE Lawrence (or 'Lawrence of Arabia' - remember the David Lean film?) who wrote Seven Pillars Of Wisdom and died in a motorcycle accident. I've written another post about June Tabor here.

Dear Walker, you don't have much faith in your readers if you need to explain TE Lawrence 'as in the film. . . '.

Perhaps your readers know anyway, why else would they come here?

Duly contrite, Friko! I didn't mean to sound condescending...
