Endings and Beginnings

Cultural eXchanges week proper began to swing fully today and - to coin an optimistic cliché - so far so good.

Day began, warmth and tea. Reading and café-stalking. Midday hits; people in the street, Clephan building filling, and latté. After me, the people file in: students; lecturers; writers, well wishers, and unknowns. Computers sing, runaways twitch, and vampire landlords fart at the police - this is a collection of readings worth hearing. A festival atmosphere, imperceptible at the edge of the air, rises.

I have bought Things, courtesy of Crystal Clear Creators, and look forward to the next day.
