If only...

...politics was a little more like this. 

Oops, that might read all wrong. I mean: if only politicians actually spoke a bit more like Janey.

Enjoy. It sure made me chuckle at 4. 50 am.

Quote of the day

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

A better (different) future

I'm back to my old routine.

Awake at 5 am. Coffee poured. And sat, here, at my little desk, listening to the dawn chorus 🐦🐦and tapping out a few words before the start of the day.

Don't ask me why, but I'm already receiving work emails (from Germany) but they can wait before the rest of the business wakes up — c.8 am.

I've shared a few quotes here and elsewhere. They're as deliberate as I can make them. I've often thought, Why bother? but it's a strong habit and one I'm loathed to break. One day, I might stop sharing words from other people, alive or dead, and write my own early morn aphorism and/or exhortation. Lucky you — haha.

Covid-19

"...recognising the climate-covid connection is an invitation to an awareness that humanity and nature are an interconnected whole, so that what we do the whole we will do to ourselves. People are dying today because of centuries of an unrestrained culture of separation and domination." — Professor Jem Bendell

From his latest blog.

It's definitely worth a read.
