When you are put into the Vortex you are given just one momentary glimpse of the entire unimaginable infinity of creation, and somewhere in it a tiny little mark, a microscopic dot on a microscopic dot, which says, "You are here."

The Germans in the neighbouring cottage (having a civilised moment with a drink on their doorstep) were very bemused when we barrelled out of our cottage, waved my phone at the sky to fix the position, then started waving.

They were only marginally less bemused when we explained why. 'Crazy Englanders,' they were clearly thinking. 'Leave us in peace. The beer is getting warm.'
