It's good to let things breathe in your imagination because often your initial response to it is not the best thought-through response. I savour little glimpses of life. Mine and those of people who turn me sideways and around. Friend or stranger. Even a child. (the world looks different from down there) Sometimes an author, photographer, artist. I let things saturate and incubate here. Hopefully, deeper meanings can percolate up and flower.

Timidity?

THINGS ARE A bit quiet here. Shush, Peter.

Across the causeway, this was (probably still is) topic du jour.

Loud voices making big waves. A critical mass of howls rippled
far and wide across the globe.

Incident, repercussion, contrition and resolution (?) followed by story telling, or what ? and truth telling. I’ve been avidly watching, with great interest the cacophony of commentary and criticism in (Little Speck's) blogosphere – a medium still in its infancy “howling and kicking against the limitations of the world into which it was born”. I think the peanut gallery was mostly (and relatively) well-informed and circumspect, under the circumstances.

Meanwhile,
this is also bubbling up. [Singapore Rebel] Blogs as social monitors, turning tensions into opportunity. The Sepet snip was a ... well, snip. Singapore Rebel

Meanwhile, timidity (reigns ?) in Bunga Raya country (?)

Please, I pray not.

IMO, there is much and remarkably (mature) critical commentary and criticism on this issue to engage people with an interest in (Asian) Journalism Cultures. Other recommended readings: Analysis in ink, Xiaxue Doctrine

Hi Percolator:

Thanks for the very informative update on our Neighbour's scene/s...Lessons for us in Msia too, for we suffer similar crisis and challengers, and as a Blogger, we just have to share lessons with each other to avoid the minefileds. Thanks for thy mine of nuggets of information and lessons from Sporean counterparts via the Links!

When we are caught up in the froth and bubble, we are not much of a bother to anyone. The story is somewhere else.
