For the next month or so I shall be homeless and sleeping on other people's sofas, floors and jobs. There may well be interruptions to the Inky Fool's usual daily eruptions. I will also, of course, have no recourse to my books which are all packed up and going into storage. I shall do my best to keep things ticking over and tocking under, but will almost certainly be forced into occasional muteness.
For the moment you must content yourself with the lovely word anabasis. The original anabasis was Cyrus The Younger's advance into Asia, the word being coined by Xenophon. However, it is now a slightly frivolous term for any grand journey.
