fire on the cutty sark


Isn't that so sad? The news came on the alarm radio while I was still asleep, and when I woke up, I was so relieved to know it has just been a bad dream. But then it came over the news again, and I had to be depressed a second time. I can't believe someone might have started the fire deliberately, why didn't they target the Starbucks next door, or ...? Bizarre. I love the Cutty Sark, and I even interviewed for the position of ship's rigger a few years ago. (They decided to make me ship's illustrator instead, probably more apt.) I hope the media publicity means lots of people donate money to make all the necessary repairs.
