What a week in politics hey?
But that is not what this article is about.

I had a pretty awesome conversation yesterday. 
Some of it involved some insight relating to some of my less popular previous articles and an amazing chat about life which seemed to, in no small part, relate back to the idea of privilege. 
Straight up, I don't completely understand the idea of white male privilege. That is half the point. This invisible thing that you can never truly understand if you have it.
I'm not going to rant about this idea, I'm going to try to check myself on this and try to digest it. 
This week I'm going to reflect on how easy I have it in ways I will truly never understand. 

But I am going to put this out there and be hopeful of spreading the optimism and positivity. 
Right now, as always, Mirage is looking for more writers to add to our voice and ensure a diverse viewpoint. If it is you or someone you know looking for an opportunity to write and share your ideas, we could be for you. We are pretty open to ideas, just as long as they are about Newcastle or for Newcastle and that they are in some way positive or optimistic. The Glass is half full after-all. 

As always, I'd love to you Why you love Newcastle?
