Κάτω από το μαξιλάρι!

June 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

Κάτω απ’ το μαξιλάρι
είναι ένα βαθύ πηγάδι
που μέσα κατοικούν
οι ψυχές που σ’ αγαπούν.

Παλεύουν κάθε βράδυ
με τα κιούγκια στο σκοτάδι
να φτάσουν στα ψηλά
πλάι στο μαχαραγιά.

Να σου μιλάν στον ύπνο,
να σε μπάζουνε σε κήπο
με μ’ Αϊ-Γιάννη και λωτούς
με χειμωνανθούς.

Κι όταν σ’ αναταράσσει
για τα σκάρτα που ‘χεις πράξει
κύμα φαρμακερό,
να σου δίνουν φυλαχτό.

Χαϊμαλί από μετάξι,
που ‘χουν μέσα του φυλάξει
άχυρο απ’ τη γη
που ‘χει μείνει απάτητη.

Έρχονται και σε μένα
πρόσωπα λησμονημένα,
άδεια και χλωμά
από πριν κι από μετά.

Μου κρατάν το χέρι
στο ταξίδι, στο καρτέρι
στον ύπνο τον βαθύ.
Είναι λίγοι, είναι πολλοί.

Μέσα στο πηγάδι
κάτω απ’ το μαξιλάρι
ρίχνονται οι ψυχές
Ήλιε μου τώρα βγες!

Fink-This is the Thing

June 16, 2011 § Leave a comment


I don’t know if you notice anything different.
It’s getting dark and it’s getting cold and the nights are getting long
And I don’t know if you even notice at all
That I’m long gone

And the things that keep us apart
Keep me alive
And the things that keep me alive
Keep me alone
This is the thing

I don’t know if you notice anything missing
Like the leaves on the trees or my clothes all over the floor
And I don’t know if you even notice at all
‘Cause I was real quiet when I closed the door

And there are things that keep us apart
Keep me alive
And there are things that keep me alive
Keep me alone
This is the thing

And I don’t know if you notice anything different
I don’t know if you even notice at all
And I don’t know if you notice anything missing

How to be interviewed

June 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

The explosion of media channels and public events means that more people are being interviewed about more topics than ever before. It might even happen to you… and soon.

  1. They call it giving an interview, not taking one, and for good reason. If you’re not eager to share your perspective, don’t bother showing up.
  2. Questions shouldn’t be taken literally. The purpose of the question is to give you a chance to talk about something you care about. The audience wants to hear what you have to say, and if the question isn’t right on point, answer a different one instead.
  3. In all but the most formal media settings, it’s totally appropriate to talk with the interviewer in advance, to give her some clues about what you’re interested in discussing. It makes you both look good.
  4. The interviewer is not your friend, and everything you say is on the record. If you don’t want it to be in print, don’t say it.
  5. If you get asked the same question from interview to interview, there’s probably a good reason. Saying, “I get asked that question all the time,” and then grimacing in pain is disrespectful to the interviewer and the audience. See rule 1.
  6. If your answers aren’t interesting, exciting or engaging, that’s your fault, not the interviewer’s. See rule 2.

Organization vs. movement vs. philosophy

June 13, 2011 § Leave a comment

Organization vs. movement vs. philosophy

An organization uses structure and resources and power to make things happen. Organizations hire people, issue policies, buy things, erect buildings, earn market share and get things done. Your company is probably an organization.

A movement has an emotional heart. A movement might use an organization, but it can replace systems and people if they disappear. Movements are more likely to cause widespread change, and they require leaders, not managers. The internet, it turns out, is a movement, and every time someone tries to own it, they fail.

A philosophy can survive things that might wipe out a movement and that would decimate an organization. A philosophy can skip a generation or two. It is often interpreted, and is more likely to break into autonomous groups, to morph and split and then reunite. Industrialism was a philosophy.

The trouble kicks in when you think you have one and you actually have the other.
