Light

I posted about news making me miserable last week. The price of thinking too much, to paraphrase Medea, is that we’ll all go insane.

Read this today.

Putting aside all of my practiced world-weary cynicism that immediately thinks that this was a brilliant piece of PR, of self-promotion, of image management, the core of the story remains. Johnny Depp, in full costume and with attendant cast, dropped in on a 9-year old’s school room today to give the girl in question – and her classmates – a day they’ll remember for the rest of their lives. And even if this was nothing more than precisely that, it’s still wonderful, and it’s still brilliant, and it’s still a small act that has great echoes.

I can’t help but read that and smile.

As you were.
