Lettera dal passato alle generazioni future.


Quando leggerete questa lettera io probabilmente non ci sarò più, cosi i miei coetanei, ingoiati dall’oblio del tempo.
Desidero lasciarvi un messaggio in bottiglia, una lettera di spiegazioni e di scuse da parte nostra per voi che dovete ancora nascere.
Siamo i vostri progenitori, chissà come sarà il mondo odierno, avete ancora piante e animali?
Siete liberi o si è instaurata l’ennesima dittatura?
Ciò che avete è ciò che vi abbiamo lasciato in eredità, bello o brutto che sia.
La nostra epoca, quella attuale in cui vivo io, adesso nel mio presente, è un epoca buia, c’è controllo e coercizione, chi dovrebbe garantire giustizia e diritti rema contro appoggiato da masse inerti e sottomesse di persone che si sono lasciate anestetizzare la mente per paura o per semplice com...

Some Saian mountaineer
Struts today with my shield.
I threw it down by a bush and ran
When the fighting got hot.
Life seemed somehow more precious.
It was a beautiful shield.
I know where I can buy another
Exactly like it, just as round.
Archilochus (c. 680-645 BC) Greek lyric poet and mercenary [Ἀρχίλοχος, Archilochos, Arkhilokhus]
Fragment 79 [tr. Davenport (1964)]

The American public, though, has largely forgotten this. The war in Afghanistan has been running for 18 years, making it the longest conflict in American history (it passed the previous milestone, set by the Vietnam War, in February 2019). Over the years, press coverage has fallen dramatically. According to the Pew Research Center for #Journalism and the #Media, Afghanistan accounted for 1% of all media coverage in the US in 2007 and just under 4% in 2010, when the Pentagon deployed 100,000 troops and dropped 5,101 bombs on the country. Today, the level of coverage is insignificant: Pew no longer even tracks it as a topic.

When you need to apply install some updates on production server and the senior dev supporting the application on it offers to give you their mobile number so you can call them in case something happens - it is normal.

When the said person starts ghosting you before you take their phone number as if they reconsidered and decided to have nothing to do with whatever happens - this is a bit unnerving.

Also makes it tempting to call them in the middle of the night to keep them posted on maintenance status :)

One year ago...




2020-01-18 - this weekend looked and felt like spring. I even found mushrooms.



2019-01-19 - one year ago it was quite different. I took this picture when I went out for lunch. The wall of snow in my face made me reconsider the usual walk and I run to the closest grocery shop instead to grab something.

Quite a difference.

For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command or faith a dictum. I am my own God. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.
Charles Bukowski (1920-1994) German-American author, poet
“The Meaning of Life: The Big Picture,” Life Magazine (Dec 1988)

3 Easy Ways to Stay Centered


With all that we have to do each day, it is easy to get stressed, sidetracked, and forget what is truly important in life.

Here are some simple things you can do throughout your day to help keep you centered, grounded, grateful, and living from your heart center.
  • Mala beads
Mala beads are traditionally used for Japa meditation, and similar to a rosary, where each bead represents a number of times you recite a positive mantra, affirmation, or prayer, to come into a more calm, spiritual state. It may not be realistic to do the entire practice during the day, but once you have put all your positive energy into your mala beads, it is with you all day long. Mala beads can be worn as a beautiful piece of jewelry every day, and the meanin... Show more...

Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering — because you can’t take it in all at once.
Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993) Belgian-English actress
Quoted in David Hofstede, Audrey Hepburn: A Bio-bibliography (1994)

There’s no such thing as life without bloodshed. I think the notion that the species can be improved in some way, that everyone could live in harmony, is a really dangerous idea. Those who are afflicted with this notion are the first ones to give up their souls, their freedom. Your desire that it be that way will enslave you and make your life vacuous.
Cormac McCarthy (b. 1933) American novelist, playwright, screenwriter
In Richard B. Woodward, “Cormac McCarthy’s Venomous Fiction,” New York Times (19 Apr 1992)

“The first stage of the economy’s domination of social life brought about an evident degradation of being into having — human fulfilment was no longer equated with what one was, but with what one possessed. The present stage, in which social life has become completely dominated by the accumulated productions of the economy, is bringing about a general shift from having to appearing — all “having” must now derive its immediate prestige and its ultimate purpose from appearances. At the same time all individual reality has become social, in the sense that it is shaped by social forces and is directly dependent on them. Individual reality is allowed to appear only if it is not actually real.”

Rondje Nordhorn weer normaal verlopen. Het gaat steeds meer een routine dingetje worden. Op vrijdag kun je gewoon een half uur te vroeg zijn en bijna altijd zo naar binnen lopen.

Op de terugweg moest ik 45 minuten wachten op de bus. Mooie gelegenheid voor een bakkie hete chocolade en een verse Croissant.

Donderdag, vechtgenote vrij en ik heb mijn behandelingen een poosje geleden naar de vrijdag laten verplaatsen. Zo hebben we even de tijd om echt dingen te doen waar we anders niet aan toe komen. Ook proberen we dan zo af en toe ergens lekker te gaan lunchen.

In Duitsland moet je dat eigenlijk niet zoeken. Als je vroeg genoeg bent serveren ze nog wel een brunch maar we waren wat later. Hup naar Denekamp. Vrij sjiek hotel in waar nog plaats was bij de haard. Heerlijke lunch gehad met vers sinasappelsap, omelet forel voor vechtgenote en voor mij dit keer een simpele uitsmijter. Nu lekker thuis uitbuiken :-)

Old #wardrobe gets #second #life as a #retro #arcade #machine

  • #IKEA #TRYSIL wardrobe saved from landfill and converted into a retro arcade games machine.
    We were dismantling our son’s TRYSIL Wardrobe to remove it from his room. It had been good wardrobe but the backing had started to continuously fall away.
    It had some slight damage during dismantling and would have become landfill apart from a last minute idea….
    A retro arcade machine!

There it is: the age old, some might say "eternal", war between safety ("survival") and freedom ("living").
  • Surviving, in this Wall-E video clip, means you're alive and "safe", but with no zest, no spice, no feeling, no happiness, no troubles, no pain, no joy.
  • Living, in the same clip, means freedom to experience risk, danger, happiness, trouble, joy, growth, sadness, creativity, zest, etc.
NWO, big government, local police, etc., claim they want to ensure your safety
Libertarians, small limited government proponents, "conservatives", constitutionalists, etc. want to protect your liberty.

which one do you choose?
