    A lively discussion last night ... great to see you all. Thanks to James for suggesting "Moby Dick".

    Some of you wanted me to post a link to the Youtube video of my "Pipeline Blues" song. So here it is. The lyrics contain whale imagery reinforced by photos of the coast from my photographer friend, Urs Boxler. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8KX9e5HY5g

      Thank you for sharing, Barry. I enjoyed those few lines you recited and love how they play out in your song. :-)

    Wonderful to see you all! Hey Wilfred-this book is about boats sort of. Come on out!
    Rachel-keep coming even if you hate fish! Hey-I wanted a scone for my breakfast and they disappeared!
    Dean-come on out! James is leading us in some heady analysis...

    So sorry for the late notice but I had to stay late at work again so I can't make it tonight! Really annoyed because I love this book and was looking forward to the discussion!

    Sorry to drop out at the last minute-this has been a really busy month for me and I haven't had time to do much reading.
    I hope to be able to make the next one!

    Let's read the introductory matter and Chapters 1 - 27 in advance.

    I'll be picking a few specific chapters in each session for us to look at in a bit more depth, and I'll post a few discussion topics and questions too.

    But please come armed with your own too! :)

    Stay tuned!
