What is he thinking?

Here's a photo of yours truly, taken by Georgia Popplewell, at the Galvanize panel discussion & conversation News That Stays News: Newsprint Literature, last Thursday evening at Caribbean Contemporary Arts, Laventille, Port of Spain.

If you're feeling idle, you can caption the photo. Best caption wins a prize. A good one.

This is the photo I was going to put the speech bubble on, so you've saved me some work. Thanks, Jonty!

in case you were wondering I can't seem to sign in to the blogger beta and that's why I haven't been blogging. Idiots.
