Loved this poem by Erin May Kelly performed to the scenes when the girls help Aimee get over her fear of the bus after a man masturbates against her on her ride to school. Powerful stuff. If you haven’t watched it already, Sex Education is brilliant. I thought Season 2 was even better. Another favorite scene from S2 – Oranges!

On India’s 71st Republic Day, protests across India which started on 19 Dec 2019 continue against fascism and to protect the democracy. (Oh, and the adoption of the constitution and I share the same birthday. November babies like their freedom the most-est!)

 

“The Boy Who Saw More” is a short film by Faraway Originals. This is the story of Nordan who explores Ladakh with a microscope. My favorite part is when he explains how “when we look at mountains, we see them as a whole…but within those mountains are so many little things that make them.” It is about engaging with our environment in new ways, going beyond the obvious. Less about what we’re taught, what we know, and what we think we should experience. More about allowing awareness and curiosity to lead the way.
