Technical and technological issues

I’m having to think clearly about my vision now to attempt to recreate it and have just realised that I would be sitting on a wall with a kindle rather than a book – how times change, and this is not a good thing as the book was intrinsic to the conversation starting! Hmm, what to do. Maybe I need to take a book even just as a prop otherwise how will Dimitrius know what I am reading and comment on it that it’s one of his favourites?! But taking a book will just add to my already limited luggage space…then again it’s quality of items not quantity, a book is an important part of the scene so I should take one…even if I have my kindle hidden inside to actually read….but then how will that work when I meet him and he asks what part of the book I’m up to and I can’t answer as I’m actually in the middle of the latest Marian Keyes or whatever? Plus how daft will I look if we are chatting and I go to close the book but actually can’t as I’ve got a kindle stuck in it, I’d look a right plonker and that’s not good for a first impression! Oh dear, I may need to readjust my vision…

Question – what if Dimitrius sees this blog and comes to try and find me? Or what if he had the same vision all those years ago and has been waiting by the wall every day since wondering where I am?! Will he be eternally scouring fishing village walls from now on for an English girl with a kindle hidden strategically in a well-chosen-thought-provoking-yet-not-too-well-known book? Nah don’t be daft, he won’t see this blog as he’s not the online sort, he won’t know what blogging is. You’d never find him on facebook (I’ve tried that too, mainly to check the spelling was a real name so I haven’t made that up) my Dimitrius won’t actually be on facebook or any other form of social media… other than a friends reunited account his swotty brother Theo set up for him donkeys ages ago to show him the power of the world wide web. So that’s helpful too just incase I do get any further imposters who are loitering around harbour walls; I’ll be able to spot them as a fake and tell them to jog on so the real Dimitrius isn’t put off approaching as he’d never compete like that…
