Sunny Saturday on east coast trains

It’s too sunny to make a start on my grim post-apocalyptic dystopian novel and the breakfast hasn’t come round yet, but I have all my gadgets ready for the journey.

The purple thing is my netbook for writing on, the book with the flowers is my grim post-etc notebook. You can’t see my kindle fire because I used it to take the picture, but it’s the most useful travel gadget because it’s so versatile. I have a playlist of travel tunes on it – a random selection ranging from Big Yellow Taxi through Pasadena and Graceland to Leaving on a Jet Plane. Some of the travel connections are more tenuous than others.
