Just reviewing some stuff I posted to FB this week:

This exhibition by vegan Frank Medrano impressed me.

My own physical discipline is running but I haven’t done any this week and I missed my Tai Chi and Qigong classes also. But some new year resolutions are in the pipeline.

I was interested in the reports that Syrian nun Mother Agnes had pulled out from a STWC conference in London because of objections from the likes of Owen Jones and Jeremy Scahill. Red Youth ran a decent article on this. George Galloway’s interview with her is worth listening to.

I thought this comment by Jane Fonda was worth sharing and thinking about:

People have been talking about the crisis with masculinity for decades and I remember conversations from the 1980’s and 90’s that were interesting. Interesting but focussing on individual men rather than on the culture of hyper masculinity that is wedded to violence. Male violence is not an accident it is part of the culture as any audit of TV series and films will show.

I shared Tom Morley’s tribute to Nelson Mandela on Friday after we heard of Mandela’s passing:

The problem with FB is that FB pages do not make it easy to review/reflect on and develop from stuff that has been posted. Less continuity.
