Freedom

According to Paul David Hewson, or more commonly known as Bono, the frontman of veteran band, U2, freedom has a scent. Well, if that is so, I suppose you would certainly be able to sniff it in the air now if you were anywhere near me. 

You see, my colleagues and I were just informed of our redundancy last week. Apparently, the management of our publication has finally reached the decision that the magazine we have been writing for and keeping afloat for the past year or so will no longer be viable to upkeep. 

It's money matters. Money is always the matter, isn't it?

Well, well... there's at least some good news for you, dear readers of my blog. You will witness more frequent appearances from me in this space. No guarantee that what is written will make sense, or even be entertaining, but I guess you'll not know 'till you stop by. 

Ah, I'm procrastinating again. I've a good few articles to complete for my soon-to-be-defunct employer, which explains my out-of-the-blue blog post. Teehee. 

Anyway, the REAL reason I came here was to share this very good quote:

"The freedom to share one's insights and judgments verbally or in writing is, just like the freedom to think, a holy and inalienable right of humanity that, as a universal human right, is above all the rights of princes."
- Carl Friedrich Bahrdt

That is a fabulous quote. I'm tempted to copy it and put it on my goodreads page.

Hi Angela, glad you like the quote :)

We all have the right to be heard, no matter what our views are. Now, if only the government of my home country would recognise that :P
