Yesterday, I watched a documentary about Pink Floyd. It was interesting to learn how much great work they did together despite the personal relationship issues they had. I learn it is because of Pink Floyd that we have so many spectacular visuals and performances at concerts today. It’s sad they couldn’t work together anymore until that charity performance for Live 8. It took them so much time to be able to play well in the sandbox together. Still, I’m glad they got to a place where they don’t hate each other now. Some people never do get to a friendly place with people from different walks of life.
There seems to be a lot of anger in the world and I wonder if I only notice because I’m on social media so much. I wonder if I reduce my participation in Facebook, will I see less of the day to day alarmist reactions and more of the good? It wasn’t that long ago that a music event happened at the park down the street from me where people gathered in celebration of diversity. Now, differences of opinion are met with physical violence. I see so much of the hate and violence online and yet my experiences in the real world are positive ones. Maybe I need a little less Internet and a lot more music.
Guid cheerio the nou,
