Rejected

In the end, I chose another image for The Tropical Archive. You can see it on my website www.alexandramajerus.com. However, I really like this image.

Hindi Zahra

One of the things I love about Toronto is being able to see musicians who come from around the world. This week I saw Hindi Zahra at the Drake Underground. She was so good. Although I imagine that she would great at a large venue, I found the intimacy of the Underground perfect. If you have the opportunity to see her, you should go. Buy her album!

Beautiful Tango

Fascination

The European Tribe

"To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul."
Simone Weil

This quote is in Caryl Phillips book titled The European Tribe. A friend lent this book to me and I started reading it just after the England Riots in August. In the book, he discusses the riots in England and what he feels are the causes - relative deprivation, the feeling that the terms on offer are unjust, coupled with feelings of valuelessness (127). He wrote this book in 1987.

I Graduated (2010)

A whimsical piece made in the month following graduation when I was on holiday visiting family in Barbados. During the semester, one longs for the end and looks forward to moving on, then from one day to the next, the program screeches to a halt. Slightly dazed, I find myself at loose ends and unsure what to do.
