Peoples Geography — Reclaiming space

Creating people's geographies

No bravery

There are several videos set to James Blunt’s ‘No Bravery’. I have picked two, run-times 4:32 and 4:02 respectively. Lest we forget the people of Iraq and the human dimension of this atrocious war.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
