Save Gonzalo Lira?

I'm not concerned by his silence. 

I'm worried. 

Make your own mind up.

Update: Gonzalo Lira was arrested by the Ukrainian SBU and all his electronics were confiscated and instructed to keep quiet about internal affairs so he had no way of reaching the outside world.

He did get some tweets out and they were imo quite ungrateful for the concern expressed for him.

Update: 10.05.22

It seems he can vlog again from Kharkov which suggests to me he's cooperating with the SBU? He hasn't got a choice but he seems to be enjoying his current role.

WOW - New Forest ¬ A Year In The Wild Wood

One of my weaknesses [I have them] is I thin-slice people I meet, which is to say that I pigeon-hole them in a few seconds rather than allow their character to shine through.... in its own time.

I don't mind confessing, I thought Peter Owen-Jones was kitted out in the best New Forest squire-attire and was thus fake.

I couldn't have been more wrong. After multiple WOWs I was a fan. I know the New Forest and Lymington fairly well, but I probably quadrupled my knowledge listening to Peter. WOW indeed.

If only the BBC could sell off their propaganda division?

Let the talent flourish I say. It's boastful to pigeonhole this kind of filmmaking as unequalled throughout the world. 

It's more accurate in my mind, to say no media institution makes more of this quality.

It's a compliment
