The Life of T.E. Lawrence
I haven’t got a heart: only the former site of one, with a monument there to say that it has been removed and the area it occupied turned into a public garden, in pursuance of the slum-clearance scheme.

When did Clare Sydney Smith die and where is she buried? There is little or no information on her after The Golden Reign.

History!

First love between a person and a film can be as intoxicating as first love between two people. It can mean just as much crazy behavior, just as many sleepless nights. As a young adolescent, I became so desperately obsessed with a certain film that I saw it over and over, spent years studying the life of its hero, regarding him as a kind of role model and even dragged my family on a long, dusty pilgrimage to a place where he had lived. If one measure of a film’s greatness is its power to affect the lives of those who see it, then Lawrence of Arabia must be the best film I know.

A reader sent me this photo of her awesome Lawrence tattoo. It is the Greek phrase that T.E. Lawrence carved upon the architrave of Clouds Hill. It translates to “why worry” or “who cares.” I love it! Also pictured, Cricket, the Jack Russell terrier.
