Thoughts Shared

I’m learning to let go of uploading a photo with my posts. I feel like this is a major sticking point for me that stops me from publishing any content to this blog.

That’s going to change from today, December 1st, 2021.

Do look forward to regular updates. Some might be passing thoughts. Some might be golden nuggets of wisdom.



I had a good walk today.



We had a good day out with Pizza for dinner.



Sometimes I just like to stare at the screen and watch the waves of the ocean come towards me and go away.

I feel like the ocean is trying to communicate that nothing in this world is permanent. And, do not be afraid to let go!



One of the most compelling encounters in They takes place when Manzoor meets Gary Jones, editor of the Daily Express, who, when appointed to the role, made the decision to stop running the Islamophobic headlines for which the newspaper had become notorious. (“Muslim Plot to Kill Pope” and “Muslims Tell British: Go to hell!”, to name just two). “I went into my first news conference,” Jones tells Manzoor, “and said, ‘Look, I know none of you in the room are going to say you’re racist, but we’re not going to publish this stuff again because it’s fundamentally wrong.’” Manzoor notes that “something that was so toxic could be changed overnight by one person’s decision-making and the circulation didn’t change at all.”

An excellent essay by Sarfraz Manzoor on how prejudice works both ways and what we can do about it?



Thinking Allowed

A new blog on thoughts, musings, ponderings and learnings.

The world needs people who can think.

Thinking is what separates us from animals. However, very few use this invaluable gift.

I look forward to sharing my thinking out loud here. I also encourage everyone to think and share their thoughts.

Think, Share, Change!
