“The young in one another’s arms, birds in the trees—those dying generations—at their song, the salmon‐falls, the tempura-crowded seas…”

My website is my other head. It’s where I store some memories, fragments and half-formed notes-to-self.

The German word for that moment of pleasant realisation that there’s an unwatched episode of University Challenge on iPlayer.

In the Hop Poles, having a sneaky pint of Hophead and a bowl of cheesy chips ahead of this evening’s Tech In Ten rehearsals.
