Time is like a river made up of events which happen and its current is strong
No sooner does a thing appear than it is carried away and another comes in its place
And this will be carried away too
Marcus Aurelius (Meditations)
But these currents sometimes cycle around like the daily pulse of a tide, and one thing, much later, can be found echoed at the heart of another. Well down river from Trinity Buoy Wharf in 2006, I lived for six weeks on the derelict Shivering Sands Forts, six miles off shore at The Nore. At the time I admired the buoy there that marked the western approaches. In January this year when my large sculptural egg was exhibited in the Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf, I discovered this deep channel marker was made there.
