Was it morning? So peaceful. Looks like you are ready for anything the day brings! lori February 19, 2009 at 2:01 am Reply You are even more interesting as a liberated, uncoiffed, self-styled Crusoe. You have shed your TV-presenter persona successfully to emerge as an ascetic and you’ve truely captured the splendor of the world in that shot. robin February 19, 2009 at 2:16 am Reply Let your freak flag fly, sir! Courtney February 19, 2009 at 6:09 am Reply Lovely. The locale looks amazing, and you appear more content with life. Whatever the day and life brings, you’re more than ready for it. Sebastian Melmoth February 19, 2009 at 1:42 pm Reply THAT’s Alistair Appleton!? Can’t be. Perhaps it’s the portrait in his closet. It doesn’t look like Alistair Appleton looks; it looks like Alistair Appleton *reads*, if you take my meaning. China doll prettiness is all very well, but *this* is beauty. Dorian, Lord Henry and Basil Hallward all rolled into one. Melissa February 19, 2009 at 3:55 pm Reply This is wonderful. David February 19, 2009 at 9:52 pm Reply Long may the hair growth continue! Is this Dominic’s influence? Jodie February 20, 2009 at 1:08 am Reply What a wonderful picture… it makes me smile 🙂 Laurier February 20, 2009 at 5:42 am Reply Merci pour ce cadeau. La vie comme une fête! John Mc February 20, 2009 at 10:02 pm Reply Something different in the eyes…. something not self-conscious. You seem peaceful and aware. Connected. Jules February 23, 2009 at 9:27 pm Reply Hello Alistair, This is a beautful picture. I have stumbled on this blog by accident and love it. I do like sporadic German bits thrown in as I am from Germany but moved to the London 11 ( I live on the Kent Coast now) years ago. Keep up the good work and have a great time with whateve you do, may it be TV or meditation.

Daniel Murray March 4, 2009 at 5:20 pm Reply This reminded me of the different “Faces of Self”: “The Seeker of Truth”, “The Warrior”, “The Waif/Streetwise”, “The Creator”, “The Fool”, “The Nurturer”…. Life is such a journey, and there are so many aspects of self that we bring to the adventure. Enjoy, Daniel Duane March 17, 2009 at 6:27 am Reply This image will remain amongst the best of your images. Vicky April 7, 2009 at 10:48 pm Reply Encircled by her arms as by a shell, she hears her being murmur, while forever he endures the outrage of his too pure image… Wistfully following their example, nature re-enters herself; contemplating its own sap, the flower becomes too soft, and the boulder hardens… It’s the return of all desire that enters toward all life embracing itself from afar… Where does it fall? Under the dwindling surface, does it hope to renew a center?
