    The Greatest Value of Our Taking

     

    As we travel online we do so believing ourselves to be largely unknown. We interact with our device or screen and sense the experience as private.

    Outside of social networks our mindset online is essentially one of taking because of our perceived isolation. I ponder on whether this is why the Web is so ubiquitous, and whether the greatest value of our taking is the chance it provides in our future to give.

    Birth

     

    Birth is not easy. It is often a matter of life and death. A piece of music is dedicated to those new born in places of disaster and conflict, and for those who care for them.

    Even in our most desperate times, compassion and the love of others remains the source of our strength and hope.

    Art I Do Not Like

     

    The Turner Prize is an annual event presented to a British visual artist under the age of fifty.

    Thankfully, I will never win.

    The art often follows the marriage of dubious thought and poor expression. Members of the public are left bemused as art commentators present their banal interpretations along with forty thousand pounds of prize money, extended news coverage, and certain notoriety.

There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.
