I visited Snoqualmie/North Bend Washington today— the real Twin Peaks. It was unusually beautiful with a creepy small-town vibe. For those of you who have visited, you’ll understand what I mean when I say the life has been sucked out of some filming locations, but being in Twin Peaks… I felt like I went back twenty years. I could hear Shelly’s voice, I could see Audrey dancing by the door, I could hear Dale recording for Diane. Call me crazy. I suppose I was awestruck.
"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves."
