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.
