Train Of Thought

Off to London today which means starting out here.


Despite the presence of the sun...


and other heart-warming luminaries...



...this station remains the coldest place known to mankind.

The view of the office this morning...

There were two gentlemen talking. There conversation was so interesting (one was in architectural restoration and the other was a landscape photographer I've seen being interviewed once on the TV but have no idea of his name) that I found myself eavesdropping. At one point the restoration expert was showing the photographer something on his net book and I had to stop myself from leaning over and asking to have a look.

So I put my headphones on, ramped up the volume and got on with some work. The views along the way...





Into King's Cross right on time...



Out of Marylebone...





Off to Prog Towers to meet up with Jerry Ewing and Russell Fairbrother. the editor and deputy art editor respectively of Prog, the magazine formally known as Classic Rock Presents Prog...


Mr. Ewing settles into the throne of prog to catch-up with some reading, the Lord of all he surveys...



A useful meeting over a few beers discussing some possible ideas for future features. Working from home it's very rare I get to actually meet and socialise with the folks I work with, so this was an extremely enjoyable occasion for me. Jerry and Russell were good company with lots of tales and lots of ideas and suggestions.

Back to King's Cross which is currently on the cusp of opening up its new entrance opposite St. Pancras...


Inside it was business as usual...


On the train back to Newcastle, the view, quite literally from the office...
