We are currently postering for some upcoming meditation classes for the Sri Chinmoy Centre.

I put up posters in the Oxford colleges, which is a great job, though I often get distracted from pinning posters on poster boards and take a few photos of the College grounds.

There is a certain monastic feel to the college buildings, which I feel is evocative of something. Though with the arrival of fresh faced freshers for the first week of term, the monastic feeling is somewhat dissipated!

Late Autumn colour.

Going to university colleges reminds me a little of my own university days. There is a tinge of nostalgia. I often remember how very different life was in a pre-digital age. Though in some respects the fundamentals haven’t change. This is a short essay on the influence of social media.
