I had intended on creating some conceptual imagery this weekend but the horrendous events of Friday evening left me feeling like there were more important things to think about.

Whatever your opinion on Paris, Beirut, Syria (along with numerous other regions in conflict around the world) it’s pretty clear that we are living in worrying times.

However, things are never simply black or white… there are always shades of grey… shades that we don’t always see due to the way news is both reported to us, consumed by us and due to beliefs that we (rightly or wrongly) hold.

Unfortunately there is no easy answer.

But one thing is for sure, rather than become divided by these atrocities we must come together.

We cannot allow our differences to breed further suspicion and hatred… because that’s exactly what they want.
