Family Fears In the news Life

Colour to B/W

3rd May 2011

Yesterday, my ten-year-old cousin asked me a question that got me thinking : “What did those guys who were flying the planes that hit the twin towers get out of the whole thing?” I floundered like a headless chicken while trying to answer this. How was I going to explain the entire situation to a kid who was born into a WTC-less world? I had always assumed that the attacks had a profound effect on every person on the planet,…

Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way

8th April 2011

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high; Where knowledge is free; Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls; Where words come out from the depth of truth; Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection; Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit; Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action— Into…

Couple this with Season 4 playing on Star World.. I am going to get…

I hate this cold feeling that is sliming its way through my body. I’m too scared to move, too scared to stay still. B O M B – B L A S T – B O O M Six, Seven, Eight. Twelve. It can’t happen here. It can’t happen to us. “We condemn the blast”. Is that the best…

Scarlett.

17th March 2008

I was having a conversation with my mother the other day about being able to “have fun” and “live my life” (as I put it)  and she said “Your life is just beginning. You still have time for all that”. I wonder if Scarlett’s mother ever told her that. Freedom. How well I know that word. I’ve thrown it around during arguments more than once. Why can’t I stay out late? Why can’t I take an auto?
