Now we could of course have done these on day trips from home but that would have environmentally unfriendly and we happened to have stayed at a very nice Inn called The Bluebell, at Crookham, which is within easy distance of all these places. It also happens to have a rather extensive menu of good food and wonderful desserts, vast breakfasts served until , a variety of ales, gins and a nice Cote du Rhone.
Hardly any travelling? No dishes?

The only marker is a small white notice by a gate at the edge of farmland and one has to park on the grass verge. We were lucky. Two cars were already there and their owners were on their way back — we chatted.
The other thing you need to know is that it takes at least an hour to walk to the stones and back on permissive footpaths along the field margins. It took us nearly and hour and a half but we did stop a while at the stones to savour the atmosphere and we went farther down the field to see the information board. When you begin to cross the first field there are three you see the stones very distant on the ridge.

Living a Lie which won the 39th Moon Prize. The header to this post is a detail from a painting by my sister Esme Kyle. The Moon has played an important role in my life.

Alas I am no adventurer. Hate to fly!!! I just love my own little patch of Earth and being at home. But I am grateful to the Moon landings for extending me beyond myself and my narrow limits, to the men who did that exploration for us all and the teams and machines that continue the work today.

But in the great scheme of things I believe that there is more to us than that. I think that we are, as all things seem to be, greater than the sum of our parts and that our consciousness is just passing through this fermion flow of matter.
