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


“What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it will destroy our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places – and there are so many – where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.”

Howard Zinn

‘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’
