The morning after the attacks on London Bridge. A quote doesn’t seem appropriate day. I listened to Sonia Friedman on Desert Island Discs. An extraordinary woman whose life and whose work for me flies in the face of yesterday’s horror. Somehow listening to her talk just felt the “right” thing for the BBC to be broadcasting, albeit there was no change to the usual schedule.
I’m listening to and playing a lot of Max Richter’s music at the moment. His album The Blue Notes he describes as
a mediation on violence – both the violence that I had personally experienced around me as a child and the violence of war, at the utter futility of so much armed conflict.
