A day in Whitby, the Abby is amazing, much larger than Lindesfarne, same wind swept feel, but high in the moors instead of on a flat coastal plane. But the town of Whitby is a lot to take in, chip shops, arcades, mini golf… and this weekend: STEAM PUNK! Like one does. #englanddreaming

There is something about treading on the the same ground as Cuthbert in 680ad, on a day when a stiff wind slammed across the open spaces with few trees to slow it down, bright skies were punctuated by dark sheep clouds leaving transparent slanted columns of rain. Not hard to believe that the Viking horde was just out of sight on the ocean, or that the monks would be grabbing Cuthbert coffin, a six pack from the brewery and heading for Durham in mere moments. Time is both big and small. All at once. #context #history #ancestors

Incredible first visit to Durham Cathedral last night, in part to tour a preview of the new installation of the treasures of St Cuthbert, which are AMAZING. Just as amazing multiple original copies of the Magna Carta, as well as the Charter of the Forest. There is not enough Wikipedia to catch me up on all the history. Tuesday is another day at Durham. Today, Lindisfarne!

Elvis Costello, July 24th at Thompson's Point in Portland. Imperial Bedroom, released 35 years ago, continues to be one of the most astounding albums I have ever l heard. I saw Elvis and the Attractions on August 22nd 1982 support this album at the Cape Cod Coliseum…and 34 years, 11-ish months later, I got to see them play it again…still amazing. (wow, I AM old) #elviscostello #imperialbedroom #imperialbedroomandotherchambers
