what do you think?

I am currently reading 'The Comforts of a Muddy Saturday' by Alexander McCall Smith and in this novel McCall Smith poses a question to not only a character but also the reader, the question is:

'what would happen if a mysterious virus was to wipe out everybody older than the age of four, leaving the world to infants and toddlers?... would we learn what everything was for?...or would we have to invent things all over again?... and what about music notation?...would we eventually work out what musical scores meant if we had nothing to base our knowledge on?'

i found this a very interesting question that really made me think, if anyone at all is reading this blog i would love to hear what you think...

nicole richie

Nicole Richie is my ultimate syle icon, her relaxed boho-chic style and her effortlessly cool outfits make her the envy of women from all around the world... and she just keeps getting better with her jewlery- turned- accessory line 'House of Harlow' and clothing line 'Winter Kate'

It's amazing to think that it has been millions of years since man first lived on earth, and to think of yourself as merely one person who has ever lived here on earth, imagine the world through the eyes of billions, even trillions of others, imagine how our world, cultures and societies have changed immensely over the years, decades, centuries and millenniums, and yet we are still today discovering new things. Imagine what it will be like in the future if we have come this far already... how will things have changed? Will we be living on the moon or other planets? Will we be living underwater? Will humans even exist or will robots take over from us? The possibilities are truely endless and only time will tell...

under the sea

To quote Sebastian from The Little Mermaid:

Under the sea
Under the sea
Darling it's better
Down where it's wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin' Full time to floatin'
Under the sea

I often think about what life under the sea would be like... How completely different it'd be from life here on land, imagine waking up everyday with beautiful fish and corals surronding you... isnt it amazing to think that one day it could happen?

the simple things in life

Sometimes i think 'why cant life be as simple as this beach shack? Why does everyone believe it is better to have more?' Sometimes the simplest things make you happy, and afterall wouldn't you prefer to be happy...?

first up

I plan on making this blog a collection of my opinions, things that interest and things that inspire me...

First up, lately i've been thinking alot about humanity and how the media has such an effect on our lives, for me the song 'Cookie Jar' by Jack Johnson sums up how our world and society has been affected by tv and the media:

I would turn on the tv
But it's so embarrassing
To see all the other people
I don't know what they mean
It was magic at first
When they spoke without sound
But now this world is gonna hurt
You better turn that thing down
Turn it around

But it wasn't me, says the boy with the gun
Sure I pulled the trigger, but it needed to be done
Because life's been killing me ever since it begun
You can't blame me 'cause I'm too young

You can't blame me, sure the killer was my son
But I didnt teach him to pull the trigger of the gun
It's the killing on his tv screen
You can't blame me, it's those images he seen

Well you can't blame me, says the media man
I wasn't the one who came up with the plan
I just point my camera at what the people want to see
It's a two way mirror and you can't blame me

You can't blame me, says the singer of the song
Or the maker of the movie which he based his life on
It's only entertainment, as anyone can see
It's smoke machines and makeup, you can't fool me

It was you, it was me, it was every man
We've all got the blood on our hands
We only receive what we demand
And if we want hell then hell's what we'll have

I would turn on the tv
But it's so embarrassing
To see all the other people
Don't even know what they mean
It was magic at first
But let everyone down
And now this world is gonna hurt
You better turn it around
Turn it around

I think Jack Johnson's songs always tell a story or a statement reflecting our society and that it's important to take notice of how rapidly our world is changing.
