God bless you one and all...

I might be being a tad Dickensian in my title, but think of Uriah Heap and a multitude of characterisations that he created, that are still with us today - really I sometimes wonder if anything is different today than in Dickens London. OK, fashions have changed, thankfully living and working conditions have changed but human nature ...mmmn not so sure.

Really it is years since I read any Dickens but the best thing I watched over Christmas was Roman Polanski's Oliver (2005). Dickens truly captured an essence of human nature whether from the poorest to the richest. I keep meaning to read his books again but defer to my current academic reading requirements of which I have to say I'm glued to Celebrity by Chris Rojek. It is very academic and theoretical but I am gripped by every sentence because he throws in Kurt Cobain and others when you least expect it.

Anyway, the point is... gosh I'm really on a role with my tangents of late.. the wonder of human nature expressed in the blogosphere. When I posted my rambling, it really was just thoughts pouring out and I truly valued opinions which can be best summed up by don't worry, do nothing, do as you please! I absolutely loved every ones opinion and really treasured what was said. I actually asked because I thought I would get some useful insight. January is a mixed month in that you reflect and try to forward plan. On the one hand its resolutions and the other debunking, plus detox. I'm such a change monkey it is really useful for me to have opinions from those who aren't, it helps me to centre and take a chill pill.

Therefore I'm going to retain the status quo and enjoy the stability of no change that brings until my next self analysis interlude!
