gather ye coffee cups while ye may

As I was making yet another Powerpoint slideshow, I was trawling through my iPhoto file for work-in-progress images of When Titus Took the Train and found this snapshot I took in a Richmond cafe earlier this year.



I could read that as 'live in the present', carpe diem and all that. Or it could be a list of deadlines, hitting hour by hour. Due NOW! And NOW! And NOW! These days carpe diem just seems to mean helping myself to the second biscuit, which is not really where I want to be.

The Fleece Station and Neill Cameron have decided we're going to run away to sea. Anyone else coming with us?

Then we are going to put you in charge of teaching the rest of us! How soon can you get to Deptford Creek? We might be able to nick one of the sawdust barges for starters, then swap our way up.

Only if they are willing to row when there's no wind.

We might have to get some pontoons to balance the sides of the ship if the giant is coming.

We already have several loose cannons, so please, sir, bring bolts and all manner of metal fastenings.

Tethers are what you need. Lots and lots of big rope tethers.
