Dune

In keeping with the fantasy theme of the recent posts, a couple of quotes from Dune to go along with this photo from the Namibian desert. Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere. (Muad'Dib, Dune) and just because... If wishes were fishes, we'd all cast nets. (Gurney Halleck, Dune)

Photo of the Day: Would you like to stay here?

Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort. (Hobitton, New Zealand)

Photo of the Day: Amer Fort or Jabba’s Palace?
