Gimmie Shelter

gimmeshelterfinalWe seek shelter in a dangerous and frightening world, we surround ourselves with those things that are familiar and give us comfort, but our fears are never far away.

“There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”

George Orwell 1984

  1. this is one of my favorite pieces by David. while it would have made a great cover for Orwell’s book, “1984”, looking at the world around us today — that is, SANS-blinders — I feel it speaks volumes more as it is so much more relevant these days!

    GREAT, GREAT piece!
