My neighbour reminded me of the beautiful walks through parks and fields close to my home. I took an early morning Sunday stroll and caught the magical light. Refreshed in body and spirit.

Manhood for Amateurs..

Caught an episode this morning on Radio 4 of Manhood For Amateurs by Michael Chabon. Read by Jason Butler Harner:

The author's warm, self effacing, reflective style told incidents of the way a man will never admit to being unable to do a job and bluff his way through! Made me chuckle - reminded me of my Dad and a few old boyfriends...

TEDxCardiff

11 million iTune record industry tracks over years to 22 million individually recorded iPhone TPain app tracks in 2 months... Dave Haynes. If you saw in radio, wifi would be bouncing off the walls... Robert Simpson. Watching the Obama inauguration on CNN with facebook friends... DK.

Just some of the eclectic ideas aired at TEDxCardiff last Wednesday 14th April at the Millennium Centre. But what stays firmly in my mind, despite our technological advances we still have fundamental questions to answer...

A film excerpt of the Malaysian Penang tribe walking a day to ask to a British documentary presenter, how to stop destruction of their rainforest's by the West... Steve Robinson.

all to a beatbox backdrop by Beatbox Fozzy with a cool deep base vibe.
