  • Hello world!


    Big hello to everyone viewing this. It's Wednesday afternoon and i'm not really in the mood for working so I thought it would be nice to catch up with the 'outside' world. The sun is shining outside my window (I think), can't really tell as the scaffolding blocks my view...nope i'm not going to go on about the weather...had a strange day's not every day you bury a friend...and then try to stare at the computer for the rest of the afternoon...should put everything else into context.
    Just goes to show i guess how we take life and all it's preciousness and beauty for granted and I guess we don't basically respect life because if we did then we wouldn't be in the messes we're in just now.
    I guess at times like these it's good to be reminded of one's own mortality and how we choose to live out this 'dress rehearsal'. All our actions have a reaction and we should wake up and be aware that no man or woman lives in isolation so everything we do or say is going to affect someone, somewhere. This is bigger than design this is fundamentally about love-humans are generally crap at this, just look at the headlines or in the mirror next time you have a spat with someone. What is our motivation for 'saving' the planet? I think it should be rooted in love first and foremost and I hope it is for the most of us...remember 'love' is an action : )
