Two Girls One Murmuration. It's their sense of wonderment that makes it.

There's a spot near Stoney Middleton where you can see murmurations most winter evenings when its dry and clear, but there's nothing like the tens of thousands of birds in this video.

Oh I remember her. She used to be on the tellybox in the Eighties, married to Emo Phillips.

Imagine that household!

fascinating!

His books are good, 'Opium Fiend: A 21st Century Slave to a 19th Century Addiction' is autobiographical and 'The Art of Opium Antiques' is a beautifully photographed guide to the paraphernalia. All from his collection.

Sadly he died last year of something unrelated to his opium smoking.

The actual mechanics had been a mystery to me, and that video cleared up several of my misconceptions.

Rituals are important.

More opium paraphernalia. The collection of  Julio Mario Santo Domingo which was sold by a Mayfair bookshop a couple of years ago. The rest of his collection about psychedelics went to Harvard.
