I am a coastal convert. A Brightonian in spirit if not birth. These days I'm playing at being a PhD student in Gender Studies. There have been dalliances with unemployment and dances with careers. I'm occasionally political and, even less frequently, humorous. I'm a nomad trapped in bricks and mortar.
