This week seemed very long - due to the last one being so short no doubt. After all that's happened I can't help wishing that I was undertaking the London trip tomorrow rather than last week. Work has been strange - but thankfully I'm finding friends there who I honestly feel are trustworthy. I'm such a miserable and disconnected old git these days that this is something near miraculous. Lots of balls in the air right now, and I'm not sure which way to turn next. Finishing "By The Ionian Sea" has left me with a strong desire to visit Southern Italy. There need to be some financial changes to achieve that particular goal. Built
gnome-terminal with the
vte widget in place of
libzvt - fixes the updating problems, but introduces some crashes when several instances of gnome-terminal are around and one closes.
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
