This was my home page when I first started this blog.
Thought I’d keep it somewhere…
Home is Where the Laptop is
…but where is the laptop? Where am I?
I am new to blogging, a big learning curve. So postings will be sparse for a while yet.
This may be a slow journey. If anyone wants to get out and push, I may get somewhere!
OK, OK… so I have had a bit of a push and rolled on one meter along the road to the great unknown. I have been asked what this blog we are currently spinning our wheels in is all about… blowed if I know! But for the time being, I am amusing myself with sharing a few of my poems and song lyrics.
Actually, the initial impetus was wanting to share my poem entitled Fukushima Kid, and see if I can get a collaborative project happening… but am not sure how to do that. This is my initial attempt.
Why do politicians so firmly close their eyes to the reality of the harm nuclear power (and nuclear armaments!) are doing to our planet?
A little boy at a school I was performing at last week with my performance partner Toshi Sakamoto put his hand up and asked “Why do countries go to war and kill each other?” He is living in a rural area of Queensland, where meeting a Japanese person is a novelty. He could see that Toshi and I are good friends, so was confused about what he sees on television I guess. So am I. That’s why I don’t watch it.
I am afraid I still feel like a little kid looking at the “grown-ups” of the world, and wondering why they do all the crazy things they do that damage our beautiful planet, and hurt us all. So I am chipping away, doing what I can to attempt to restore sanity in an insane world. Does that answer your question Mr Hattori?
