"I am a contented being, wanting nothing for myself or anybody else, & contentment is uncreative. It is a little folding of the hands for sleep." - T.E. Lawrence

Does anyone else find it extremely difficult to be sociable at work after you’ve been off for a few days?

"We had no opportunity to notice this just now, or indeed anything, except the mass of Feisal’s army, filling the valley from side to side. There were hundreds of fires of thorn-wood burning, and round them Arabs making coffee or eating, or sleeping muffled like dead men in their cloaks, packed together as closely as they could in the confusion of camels. I had never imagined so many camels together, and the mess was indescribable, as they were couched or tied up here and there all over the camping ground, and more were coming in, and the old ones leaping up on three legs to join them, roaring with hunger and agitation."

Passage in Seven Pillars of Wisdom describing Feisal’s camp at Nakhl Mubarak, photographed above by T.E. Lawrence, December 1916. This was T.E.’s first witness to a large army of Beduin and their camels upon arriving in Arabia.

Hi-res here if this is what you were thinking of.

Thanks I think that will work! 

Help. I need a pic of Peter in LOA when he is sleeping out in the desert, but not the one with the flame after Deraa.
