A thought for our times

This morning, the first thing I did (after making myself a cup of coffee) was to put on my earphones and listen to Ravish Kumar of NDTV reflect on the events of yesterday.

Those events in their red hot immediacy fuel rage and despair in equal measure but, as Ravish says, they also merit — demand — a period of calm reflection. Ravish reflects so we don’t have to. Please take the time out to listen till the very end.

A personal note: In the midst of all this I managed to do my back some damage, so I’ll be resting it today. My next blogpost will therefore be tomorrow — and maybe it is a good thing, maybe this time is best used reflecting not on the immediate events, but on what lies beneath, and what looms ahead.

Take care, be well, stay safe.
