A flood of echoes coming through from two thousand and eight today, a day when politics floats across the water everywhere. As Gazprom restarts its flow of energy to eastern Europe, as the Israel and Palestine conflict enters into its post-analysis and is begun to be understood once more in its dual context of personal diaspora and decade-long complexities, as Kinshasa reports of movements once more on its borders... the majority of people I know are, right now, watching a hill and a house as America prepares for the inauguration of the forty-fourth President.

Following the deposition of one of the most unpopular Presidents of my generation, the world prepares itself for one of the most anticipated seventeen minutes of rhetoric, followed hopefully by years of action.
