Chinese New Year celebrations this morning: A “lion dance” outside the supermarket that is of course open for business. I am not looking [much] at news from elsewhere. Ugh noises. But I am thinking about economics [again], how to eradicate the dreadful inequalities, how to look after this wonderful earth, etc. Scroll down for a great song to listen to below the photo. Share if you like it. Scroll further for a selection of photos from the last few days, especially the family celebrations.
I find myself wishing things like I wish my mum could have known this – her own first precious grandson and his sons and their cousins having a great time … in China. What would she have made of it, and of the internet, and all and all? [Thank you Tim Berners Lee, you launched it as “commons“. Similarly Wikipedia is “commons”. Support them, and fight to keep them that way.]
And a song … pretty good too even if it is about ‘banking'[from Adelia Tisdall].
and a poem
and a few photos from the last couple of days
