Some very sad things have happened recently.

I have sunk. Hit the ocean floor, and my hull has rusted. Barnacles, limpets, crustaceans of every kind abound there now.

Fish glide through abandoned rooms – silver glimmers in the murk.

    You know what happens to those wrecks? Some fabulous person finds them and they becomes a top selling movies, keys to a lost moments in history, or they contain sunken treasure. Sunken ships are there for the finding…and they are worth the wait.

    Ah, what a picture you paint – I’m almost envious, remembering my times as a sunken wreck with “DESPAIR” written on my bows – how very still it is down there, darling – and how very busy up here what with the ship’s hooter and the bad music and hundreds of passengers eating and drinking, not to mention the interminable games of deck quoits! Good for the soul, the bottom of the ocean.

    Speaking of ships, the QE2 and the QM2 arrived in Sydney hesterday morning, their presence bringing the city to a state of gridlock as everyone rushed to the harbour for a sight of the grand ladies. We had fireworks, of course.

    Come up for air when you’re ready.

    “hesterday”? mmm – quite a poetic word, I think.
