Graham's blog: politics, poetry, and introspection

Down Today

Today was my first full day back in the office, after a week off. It didn't take long before I was pacing up and down, like poor Mercedes the Polar Bear in her cage at Edinburgh Zoo. Trapped in tedious…

Creation and Contribution

We all consume too much, and create too little. Perhaps that's the fault of the mass media, but it's also the realm of (arguably) the best creators with the widest audience. Being part of that audience…
