Carved homage to T.E. Lawrence in Wadi Rum, Jordan.
I’m letter after letter behind, but have been nursing a broken rib, and awaiting a moment when I felt inclined. Bank Holiday was a camp orgy, and after it there is a little silence. I fear it will rain again this afternoon …why do I always feel the weather so keenly in Clouds’ Hill? …The cottage is nearly closed in with mountains of rhododendron bloom, of the screaming blue-pink which I used to dislike: now that they are my plants I love them. Isn’t it greedy to give such undue favour to one’s own?

T.E. Lawrence carved this lintel over the door of their house in Carchemish while he was there on an archaeological dig in his mid-20’s.
”As I had no chisels, I carved it with a screw-driver and a knife. It is a Hittite design and use, an looks very fitting.” -T.E. Lawrence to his mother, 1912
