    Roads go on
    Roads go on
    While we forget, and are
    Forgotten like a star
    That shoots and is gone.

    On this earth ‘tis sure
    We men have not made
    Anything that doth fade
    So soon, so long endure

    - Edward Thomas

    Good to meet up yesterday with Joe Moran, whose current project is the soon-to-be-published Queuing for Beginners; The Story of Daily Life from Breakfast to Bedtime and who is then going to be turning his attention to the minutae of life on the roads. He tipped me off about Thomas, who wrote a lot about roads and who (according to Lucy Newlyn) "saw the world as a walker sees". Fertile ground, all of this.
