A deafening silence is filling our well of discontent.
Desperate, newsfeeds languish without laughter
‘Cause the ground has been grasped from beneath all our feet,
So we yield and to Mercy, we beg
As furious, speedy spirals dizzy us,
Yet limbs, fingers and toes invisibly tangle to show what we share.
We isolate under the phones on our heads
And so still we meet.
Our musical tongue confesses
The volume in our homes we pump.
To dance, we must still dare.
In these uncertain times here are some songs from all around the world to consciously inform, inspire, and uplift as we wait for the world’s storm to end. I pray we awaken from the wreckage, spirited to new meaning and inner sunshine, for one and most importantly for all.
I love reading and I love writing, especially poetry. My curiosity about what it means to be and how we use and change the technology we create to interpret that has increased exponentially with the birth of my son. It’s what made me yield to my mindful, inner push to create and to write here today. Even though the site is not at all perfected and this takes 20 minutes away from working on my thesis, that keeps shouting at me about that looming deadline.
I guess it really is no coincidence that I am doing a PhD in Web Science, which looks at how the web intersects with the every day. It tries to bring greater understanding of fields, worlds, outside of what we call our own by forging new ideas and different connections for a positive way forward.
I’ll be posting here articles and opinions on technology-related issues, how we impact them and they impact us. My poetry and prose will I hope also inspire, and I’ll link you to any authors that I find interesting and thought-provoking. Let’s see what comes from answering this moment’s call. I hope you hear and answer your nagging call today too.
