'The scale, colour and immediacy of disasters in the news gives them the power to elbow themselves to the forefront of our consciousness, where they insistently squat, demanding updates every ten minutes (which the news duly obliges us with), thereby obscuring the call of all those far quieter yet for us far more consequential worries which we need to face within ourselves. When a plane has just crashed in Nepal, we may reflexively start to respond in the manner of an air accident investigator or a panicked relative, rather than remember that this is not in fact really any of our business - and that we ought more fairly to be spending the day looking within, trying to interpret those faint pulses of anxiety upon which the effective management of our selves depends.'
