Reply to Great run this morning. ...

St. James's Park is lovely. I used to take lunchtime walks there and feed the squirrels when I worked in the area many moons ago.

@colinwalker I didn’t. Just some ducks. Would’ve loved to see some pelicans.

They're usually found basking on the rocks in the lake.

Like Simon Collison | Yes, people still buy tapes!...

... even when they have no way to play them.

I knew that, with this being a multimedia project, if I didn't buy the physical media I'd be missing out. And I was right.

Simon says in "Paper Cranes":

"when this survivor shakes my hand, it unlocks a deeper level of empathy; makes everything tangible and immediate."

Although not on anything like the same scale, there is a similar response to being able to touch and view the printed materials that come with the tape, they give a sense of connection to the music, and its subject, that cannot be experienced by listening alone.
