The Precariat – What’s that?

I’m not really in a writing mood, but I have just been listening to Guy Standing giving a TED talk on the Precariat, explaining what it is. It makes a lot of sense of some of the things that seem to be happening all over in our lives.

It is worth a listen! [His writing is also worth a read, though academic, takes effort.]

and, a lot of TED talks are worth listening to – as they say –


It’s also worth walking and swimming and lying about on lovely beaches – that’s my way of enacting one of Standing’s ideas, that we need to reclaim TIME.

Photos from a crazy day when there was a band of white cloud on the horizon, lightning and thunder, and we all just stayed on the beach or in the water as it was beautiful.
