Paris, 11 January 2015

We try to stay above politics and current events here at The Projector, as we focus on trivial things like movies and music and books and magazines and good old fashioned glamour, as well as Trash delights and lots of People We Like and Showpeople. Today though, as for last several days, we have been focused on the events in Paris,  as now millions take to the streets to show their unity- another game-changer in the ongoing new world situations we try to deal with, as we did back in London in 2005. Je suis Charlie indeed. Terrible things happening in other parts of the world, as in Nigeria, do not seem to attract the same attention .... or photo-opportunities. 


  1. Like you I avoid anything to do with politics in my blogs. My husband and daughter were in Paris - what a week to visit - and I was glued to the news here in Blighty. Last night's Unity March was so impressive, a city and a world demonstrating their belief in humanity and freedom. I also appreciated the lighting displays on significant buildings in London.
