In the future

bout time for my bi-annual update...

In the future

We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives.   
And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future. 
You are interested in the unknown... the mysterious. 
The unexplainable. 
That is why you are here.

In the future
even the smallest     business
will be

In the future
the food chain     and     the supply chain
will merge

In the future
South-South trade
will be norm   not novelty

In the future              investors
will need to   be

In the future
we will           be
planting cities

In the future
age will          be
no barrier       to ambition

In the future
we will all fly

In the future
it will take     many imports
to make          an export

In the future
there will       be
no markets left
waiting to emerge

There’s a new world
emerging       Be
part of it


Bench Press

'Where's revolution these days? I spend a long time hunting for it, but I can't find it. Then I have an idea: if it's been pensioned off, it probably lives in a pension. Quite right! I find it staying at a pension in rue Danton. It's hanging from the ceiling like a chandelier and is very dusty. All the candles have burned down.'

Sven Lindqvist, Bench Press

Life is elsewhere

'if a poem is to be a true poem, it must be read by somebody else besides the author; only then can it prove that it is not merely a disguised diary and that it is capable of living its own life, independent of the person who had written it.'

Milan Kundera, Life is Elsewhere


the case for lower case

i have no idea if you can get lower case letters for blog titles and such, big fan of lower case.
in the meantime:

lower case is presence...lower case gives you space to live...
lower case is the swish of the skirt

with apologies to Tom Leonard, from the case for lower case,
it seemed apt.
