Yesterday I responded to yet another person criticising the "mindless dribble" [sic] of Twitter.

Moments ago I listened to Bernie Goldbach's Audioboo about a new arrival and was touched by his attention to detail - not about the baby but about the condensation on the inside of his car window!

I then scanned emails from 2005 as I archived them out of my main mailbox. It was like watching a timelapse of my life.

I often quote Rob Paterson's phrase "the intensity of the mundane" but it is worth restating that it is the little things that make life real and understandable - not the big exciting things that we are coached to value by the media.
