"It would certainly be sad to think that mine might be the last generation to know the thrill of close proximity to water eddied by the passage of ships; water that laps and echoes in forgotten weed-dark places and whose soft rippling reach has the sentience of curiosity, of touch almost."

"...itís not about the views. Itís about connecting physically with a river whose banks are becoming increasingly sanitised and corralled by concrete."
