Awoken by a message on my mobile from Seattle, I’ve just been browsing the web a little more and enjoying the small pleasures of instant messaging. Thinking about these strange connections we’ve built for ourselves.
Last night Channel 4 ran some more short films as part of their “which side are you on?” exploration of the rumours of war in the middle east. Thought provoking stuff. The first film–by an american living in london asking us brits to help the usa avoid war–reminded me of how grateful I am to have so many american friends who help me see past foreign and economic policies I can’t abide. To see that there is hope beyond the hegemony and that there are voices of love within. I think without that knowledge, things would be a whole lot harder.
Sea Change continues to get a lot of play here. I’m told I have to leave it here as I’m outnumbered, but my secret plan (sssh… don’t tell anyone) is to pack it away while the numbers are slightly more balanced. Wish me luck. And don’t tell anyone.
