Rocker you are on a roll now. What does the sign (writing) on the wall say?

it is a bit from A Portrait of the Artist as a young man by Joyce...the first faint noise etc....

She was alone and still, gazing out to sea; and when she felt his presence and the worship of his eyes her eyes turned to him in quiet sufferance of his gaze, without shame or wantonness. Long, long she suffered his gaze and then quietly withdrew her eyes from his and bent them towards the stream, gently stirring the water with her foot hither and thither. The first faint noise of gently moving water broke the silence, low and faint and whispering, faint as the bells of sleep; hither and thither, hither and thither: and a faint flame trembled on her cheek.

Not being a Joycean scholar myself, I wonder what stream that might be Rocker? O'Toole's maybe?

And anyway, how apt - what with you now going hither and thither with your camera.
