For those puzzled by grief this morning, their own or someone else's, over someone they never met or talked to, here's a metaphor:

Singers, poets and wordsmiths are the lighthouses that guide us through the dark nights and troubled waters of adolescence and beyond. Most of the time the brilliance is distant, a comforting luminance by which to mark our place and navigate. Every once in a while, though, the lighthouse swings round to make that direct and dazzling connection, perfectly and personally illuminating us in our little boats, and it is in these moments that we see, find and know ourselves all at once.

For me, one of these moments was this song, live in Istanbul in 2009.

Nice article about how important Miyazaki's women are to the author. Worth a read, and definitely worth sitting down with the kids and watching a few of these.
 
The famed Japanese animator and director created heroines who defied feminine stereotypes and showed me how to be at home in my own skin.

Yes, that's right, folks, Amnesty International has work to do in the UK...

I did! But sadly, the European elections remain the only time my vote has actually had an effect. But that's undemocratic, apparently

You know what I'd really like? Enough money to buy a hippopotamus.

I don't actually want the hippopotamus, but having that amount of money would be pretty great...

Spending money without worrying is a good thing

Really not safe for work or your parents, but if you love David Tennant, here he is reading a few very fruity tweets...

Really, not safe for work...
