Comfortably Numb

Following on from the same theme as the  last post,  Dave Pollard has just posted  Comfortable Disconnection  in which he describes our 'human condition'  in prose far more beautifully than I ever could.  I prefer to take personal responsibility for our predicament rather than blame 'culture' but nonetheless this is a great piece.  Here's a taster to wet your appetite before you click through:

So I go on, still blind to all the consequences
of my actions and inactions
and to what I've lost
and long forgotten.

In this comfortable disconnection
I'm accustomed, now, to unreality."

Wonderful stuff.  It reminds me very much of this classic Pink Floyd song - 'Comfortably Numb'.  Enjoy.  You may have to click through from feed readers to watch the video

Welcome.....     

  • ..this blog stems from a recognition that our true nature is far more creative, loving and unlimited than we could possibly imagine... and it transforms everything... a practical, generic solution to all our problems.

    These are just my lesson notes as I try to  be true to that recognition... and  learn to fly.  So it's quite possible that everything here may be wrong.

    Thank you for visiting.  Email (to Nick Smith) is always welcome.
