I am 'Midway whelmed'

"Round the world! There is much in that sound to inspire proud feelings; but whereto does all that circumnavigation conduct? Only through numberless perils to the very point whence we started, where those that we left secure, were all the time before us.

Were this world an endless plain, and by sailing eastward we could forever reach new distances, and discover sights more sweet than any Cyclades or Islands of King Soloman, then there was promise in the voyage. But in pursuit of those far mysteries we dream of, or in tormented chase of that demon phantom that, some time or other, swims before all human hearts, while chasing such over this round globe, they either lead us on in barren mazes or midway leave us whelmed."

Well, I'm just off for a couple of nights by the sea in Brighton.... managed to beat the hotel down to a very reasonable price; as it's mid-week and two weeks before Christmas (ie: the hotel's fairly empty).

Yeah! My first little tiny holiday for ages.
Tomorrow night there's the gig with B playing...
Meeting up with old friends who live around there too.
Should be plenty of fun!


Hope you're have fun also.
