Individual versus dogma - Harraga

Harraga by Boualem Sansal One of the best books I've read recently. Harraga means 'those who burn', in this context it's someone who attempts to illegally immigrate to another country/regime.  The book was written in French, by the Algerian writer Boualem Sansal, and translated into English by Frank Wynne. The book is set mostly in the house (and the mind!) of Lamia. Her house is very

Emily Dickinson stood up and lived

I'm pleased to hear that she lived :) Emily Dickinson Three times -- we parted -- Breath -- and I -- Three times -- He would not go -- But strove to stir the lifeless Fan The Waters -- strove to stay. Three Times -- the Billows tossed me up -- Then caught me -- like a Ball -- Then made Blue faces in my face -- And pushed away a sail That crawled Leagues off -- I liked to see -- For thinking --

Love is the Seventh Wave - Sting

A fine song from Sting, apparently expressing his interest in synchronicity and meaning. Love is the Seventh Wave - Sting with lyrics Love Is The Seventh Wave In the empire of the senses You're the queen of all you survey All the cities, all the nation Everything that falls your way, I say There is a deeper world than this that you don't understand There is a deeper world that this tugging
