Writing time taken....

I'm away from blogging anything for a while as all my writing time is being taken up writing the harrowing History research proposal but the aim is for it all to be done and sent by the end of this weekend....so we shall see I might be back then. Although I don't know who I'm actually writing this to because nobody reads it-ha! Its a note to myself...I have set it in writing in public that my aim is to have this research proposal done by weekend so I have no excuse now.

Egopendium Home

Thought this was an interesting website, more a note to myself really for future reference. It takes current issues/people and compares them similar events/people from the past. Tool for making History relevant to the present day...Wallis Simpson advising Kate Middleton. Shows interesting connections between then and now and how we're all interlinked really.

An interesting musical idea....

I like Imogen Heap and I like her because she tries things.

I think this will be an interesting thing to try http://heapsong1.imogenheap.com/index.html

In a nutshell, she is creating a new album but she wants it to be created by everyone, various people's random ideas and thoughts collaborated into a song. Have a look it's something different to do.

Impacting News

Sometimes you hear some news that stops and makes you think and has an impact on you. Even if it is news about something that has happened to somebody you never knew particularly well, they still have connections with you just because you know who they are and always came across as such a lovely person and you think how could 'that' happen to 'them' ....'that' and 'them' are so far removed from each other that to breathe them in the same sentence is just pure wrong.

So maybe bad things happen because it makes people stop and think about their own life which we so often take for granted and gives them the reminder they need every now and then to live life to the very limits of its possibilities because without warning these limits can suddenly be reduced.And you'll be left wishing you reached for those limits when they were less pressing and claustrophobic.

My life has become an endless rotation of thinking of the Great Gatsby from new and varied angles so tomorrow an appreciative reflection of Gatsby and friends.
