Stopping the Starting

The Libyan Coast.
Where Africa meets the Mediterranean. The  Mediterranean calls back promises of Europe.

It is obvious much much more must be done to stop the trafficking of Adventurous-by-Circumstance across these waters,    or into the deep
deep depths of these waters.

Conflict and inequality embracing deprivation and desperation.
Talent and determination at the mercy of cruel opportunists.Lives washed away and more boarding boats behind.

Stopping the Starting. Stopping the conflict and inequality, deprivation and desperation must be our target. Africa is not to be ignored.

Rest in peace. Unknown.
Known unto God.

Queen of 63 years

7th February 2015

Yesterday the Queen of the Commonwealth and head of state of the UK commemorated 63 years on the throne. By necessity as a hereditary monach, also remembering a parental death.
The last one to hold the head of state office for so long was also an Empress and oversaw an era of adventure and discovery. Exploration of the Nile and it’s headwaters was a race against rainforest, disease, men and a passion of some of Queen Victoria’s subjects.
