Midway

Well, friends, as of last night uni is over for another semester.  And I have to admit that despite my passion for food/ environment issues, I will happily avoid any literature on food deserts for at least a month.  Guys, that stuff is crazy.  The more I read, the more confused I get.  There is so much uncertainty, so much controversy and so much contradiction that by the time I submitted my paper I’d just about turned myself inside out.  It’s definitely something I’d like to delve into further though – just give me a few weeks breathing space!

Today, I thought I’d share a video that I watched last night.  My friend Rodrigo linked to it on Facebook and I started watching it thinking that it was just an exceptionally well-filmed nature documentary.  It wasn’t.

It is definitely worth watching, and I think that it’s really important that lots of people do see it.  But please also be warned that it is pretty harrowing and I did sit at my desk in tears for a while (yes, I’m a sook about some things).

Please think about donating to his Kickstarter.  And also, let me know what you think.

(On a side note, I should be much more consistent with blogging for a while.  I won’t have uni again until early August and I have also just started a new job – hence the limited free time that I have won’t be absorbed by job applications – at least not for a while I hope!  I hope you’ll come back to join me again!)

  2. Kirill: That is an excellent idea, although I suspect my lecturer may have a little something to say about it :)

    Silke: Thank you so much for dropping by! I’m glad you shared the link too – it’s devastating, but it’s something that people need to know about.
