Living in a Time of Crisis

Liv­ing in a Time of Cri­sis:

From Mike Far­ley > How can one lit­tle per­son make any dif­fer­ence in so great an issue, and in any case, how can any­one, indi­vid­u­ally or col­lec­tively, know what might make a dif­fer­ence? The answer seems to me to be found in the silence that lies at the heart of all we do as Friends – that lies at the heart, in fact, of all expe­ri­en­tial faith of what­ever era or persuasion.

Apoc­a­lypse Now, as follow-up to read­ing Conrad’s Heart of Dark­ness a few weeks ago.

Watched this as a fol­lowup to Conrad’s Heart of Dark­ness a few weeks ago. Fran­cis Ford Coppola’s film takes inspi­ra­tion and a few scenes from Conrad’s book but many of its most arrest­ing images are orig­i­nal. It does help con­tex­tu­al­ize the book how­ever. The claus­tro­pho­bia of the river really comes alive—there’s one way up and one way back and pos­si­ble ambush lies anywhere.
