A tote bag I got for my birthday (thank you curioser-curioser!) and a passport cover.

Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh
“Perhaps all our loves are merely hints and symbols; vagabond-language scrawled on gate-posts and paving-stones along the weary road that others have tramped before us; perhaps you and I are types and this sadness which sometimes falls between us springs from disappointment in our search, each straining through and beyond the other, snatching a glimpse now and then of the shadow which turns the corner always a pace or two ahead of us.”
Edward Emerson Barnard, Comet “Brooks”, (1893)
