August in central England. The wheat and barley have gone, replaced by stubble, crows, and pigeons. Full summer, with a very slight hint of autumn in the air.
I'm not a religious person so this is the closest I have to a pilgrimage of my own. Standing outside Syd Barrett's old house in Cambridge, England. Homage to the influence he and Pink Floyd had on my life.
In Akko, north west Israel, on the coast. Like Haifa, a 'mixed' city of Jews, Muslims and Christians living together.We ate lunch in Said's Houmous Restaurant. I've never seen so much delicious houmous! All you can eat for 15 shekels, about £3. It is an incredibly popular Arab restaurant, with a diverse mix of customers.
Israel. I took this photo on a train from Tel-Aviv to Haifa one Friday afternoon. I'd heard in the media about 'apartheid' Israel where Muslims do not mix with Jews. What struck me the most about this scene was the very casualness of it. Clearly there may be other parts of Israel where such harmony could be a more challenging prospect, but perhaps, if rather naively, this is an indication of the possibilities?

On a visit to Israel I found this jagged piece of rocket shrapnel on the roof terrace of our Tel Aviv hotel just after one of the daily alerts. Memories of the Katyusha rocket air-raids I describe in my book, Kibbutz Virgin.
If you have always wanted to ask me something, now is the time to go for it!
