Moments


It’s been a while.  Lots has happened, but also nothing.  We haven’t moved house as someone in the chain died.  We have no idea when the move will be on the cards again.  Ho hum.

Anyway, I have been continuing to listen to Desert Island Discs and was interested in an observation from Hugh Laurie a couple of weeks ago:

 "I heard the other day that there have been more photographs taken in the last twelve months than there have ever been taken, in the world, ever. Because people are now photographing – I shudder to think what they are photographing – everything and nothing. No interaction is deemed to have actually happened unless somebody has a picture of it. Nobody is satisfied with having met a person without having a photograph to prove it. I think that is odd, and I think it’s so odd that it might actually be starting to alter the way we think about each other and the way we think about general day-to-day social interaction."

That's really interesting from Hugh Laurie. We aren't satisfied unless we see a picture and, sometimes, it can almost be seen as a person being less trustworthy because you can't find a picture of them.

I hope everything is resolving itself with the house move.

Wow, haven't been in blogland myself for ages and decided to pop in tonight.
Hope your housemove gets sorted. Moving is an absolute nightmare in London. I know, as i live here now!

Saw the riders on the tour de france whizz by today too!

Hope you are well

A moment is a turning impact of a power. It is an articulation including the result of a separation and a physical amount Assignment Writer UK and along these lines it represents how the physical amount is found or orchestrated.
