NOT CONTENT The Second Holly Grove, between Avalon and Money, Mississippi, 2013 An extract from my notes on the 5th of February - 'Leaving Granada we came across an old store front near Holcomb, MS, and stopped to photograph it - the first of many finds of the day. Next we passed through Avalon, hometown of Mississippi John Hurt, which consisted of little more than a few houses, a few empty shacks, a gin warehouse (abandoned), and plenty of fields. We then drove to Greenwood, the 'Cotton Capital' and home to Furry Lewis, and got gas before turning back towards Avalon, in search of Money, MS - site of the story of Emmett Till. Driving along the red dirt road we stumbled upon The Second Holly Grove MB Church, est. 1894 - between Avalon and Money - a very secluded spot with some interesting gravestones, one belonging to somebody with the Hurt surname.

FELLINI’S DREAMWORK Sigmund Freud considered dreams “the royal road to the unconscious,” a glimpse into a world of mind we inhabit without knowing it, except when we dream. Even then, we do not know it as we do the world we are conscious of, because this world—the unconscious—is revealed to our conscious minds only in fragments that often seem irrational and incoherent. Freud, however, believed they made a great deal of sense, if only they could be ‘translated’ in terms of our conscious experiences. Not only that, but understanding the sense they made was vital to our mental health. This is hardly the place to explain Freud’s theories or argue for or against their validity. A great many books doing just that have been written in the hundred or so years since the publication of The Interpretation of Dreams, a founding text for the field of psychoanalysis.

Brokin nglish. Saturday - March 21st, 2014 | Location: Seattle Given the timing of us being in Juneau, someone made mention of visiting the Mendenhall Glacier, and that the large lake was frozen and we’d have about an hour journey with crossing the lake, as well as the hike up the glacier to the Ice Cave entrance. There were lots of pitfalls and it was all about staying on the path, but given the weather warming up, we didn’t expect the lake to remain frozen all the way through (the First mini glacier shot) with the heavy foot traffic, but it did and was an amazing trip in. The usual trek would be about 3 hours had the lake not been frozen!

GEOMETRIE VARIABLE The new documentary Gloria: In Her Own Words, which airs this month on HBO, is ostensibly a celebration of the life and work of feminist icon Gloria Steinem. The film, though, also offers a healthy dose of perspective on the Women’s Movement of the 1960s, what it accomplished, and what it all meant on a personal level to one particular woman, Steinem, who was already in her mid-thirties when she made the leap from journalism to activism. Steinem, though, quickly proved an influential, if polarizing, figure in the movement, and found herself not only wrestling with the long-entrenched ideas and political systems that were conspiring to deprive women of their rights and freedoms, but also with the media (which placed an undue emphasis on her physical appearance), her own ambivalence about stepping into the spotlight, and even, at times, with other feminists. MARIA SHRIVER: So how did you feel watching this documentary for the first time? STEINEM: No.
