It's almost a year since I had these pages up. But having gone round the 'Net, and having crossed paths (or swords) with people all over the world, it's home that is still the best place to be in.
"People are the same wherever you go..." as Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder would sing. "There is good and bad. In everyone. Learn to live. Learn to give each other what we need to survive. Together alive."
As I write this, I'm looking out over the water at a friend's place, having come from our own place whose usual tranquility has been broken by the large number of cars arriving for the funeral of a man who has just died, suddenly in Jakarta, in the prime of his life. They're a hugely popular couple, and it's no wonder they have so many friends.
It puts things in perspective. There's a lot more to life than iLife and Postfix Enabler and the problems of strangers. After all, there's the kid (seen here with his very best friend). And the birds on our tree continue to sing, whether we notice them or not. We do the best we can and move on.
