The Lady – The Story Of Aung San Suu Kyi

December 31, 2011 § Leave a comment

If you’ve been losing the fire in your belly – watch the recently-released film about the life of Aung San Suu Kyi.

Like me, you may only know bits and bobs about her life and Burma’s struggle. Her Reith Lectures earlier this year made an impression – as will this wonderful film.

The Burma Campaign.

Wisdom To Share

December 29, 2011 § Leave a comment

After watching series 4 of The Wire back to back over the last couple of days – these words by Angel Kyodo Williams seem to be apt,

“Without inner change there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters.”
