window is a blog Maria Amidu started writing in January 2015. It is a repository for her random musings on significant and insignificant things…

unknowing

‘in this moment’…. what about all the other million moments of the ignored and disenfranchised (the state care experienced for example) who observe from the sidelines (in bemusement, incredulity, annoyance) as society wakes up to what has been ‘normal’ for a very long time… and want to shout (well I do anyway) get a fucking grip for god’s sake

am I being too harsh…

…must remember to think ‘what’s happened to them’ rather than ‘what’s wrong with them’

 

word collecting

impoverished lothario carelessness is dangerous

majorities…

whenever I listen to BBC Radio 4 someone always says something that just grates, so today it was something about ‘minorities’, I swear this word is going to cause me to do something I’ll regret

why the hell are some white people, quite a lot of them actually, defining themselves (in word and or deed) as the majority with such ease, what do you call yourselves if you’re in a room full of the ‘minority’? Maybe this has never happened to these people, maybe that’s where the assuredness and assumption comes from… Try it, try that out, see how that works out for you…

As a wise, wise friend said yesterday: this, all this is “high level fuckery”
