1/🧵 Beauty in simplicity
 
For too long in life, I thought success was about climbing in the 🌎’s eyes…higher, better, farther. My physician wife & I are “new parents” to my 58 y/o brother w #DownSyndrome & he’s giving me all kinds of new understanding of what matters.

#COVID
2/ When I come home, Greg is usually hiding from me, like you see here. He thinks so beautifully, “How can I make someone else #happy in the small things in life?”

Here he is hiding in plane sight next to our dog Butter. Look at that grin!

#Recovery
3/ Hide and Seek: He taught me that if he can’t see me, I can’t see him!

At first that seems nutty, but in truth, for me to enter “into #relationship” w you, we do need to SEE EACH OTHER, right?

So who’s teaching who here?!

1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: bit.ly/3knoa6Y bit.ly/3Bd0rgj Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. bit.ly/2TT3R7O @OttoKolbl

1/210: Markus Kerbers Apollo13
Im März 2020 stellte das @BMI_Bund eine COVID-19 Taskforce zusammen, die ein umstrittenes #Strategiepapier verfasste. Die #Emails der Autoren wurden per Informationsfreiheitsgesetz freigeklagt. Hier kommt meine Analyse der 59 Emails. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: Die @BMI_Bund-Mails sind geschwärzt für die Öffentlichkeit freigegeben, seit sie durch den Anwalt Niko Härting per IFG-Verfahren erstritten wurden. Über @fragdenstaat können sie direkt beim @BMI_Bund @rki_de angefragt werden. bit.ly/3knoa6Y bit.ly/3Bd0rgj ImageImage
3/210: Die Emails enstanden vom 19.-25. März 2020. Sie sind deshalb so brisant, weil sie die inneren Diskurse der inzwischen berüchtigten COVID-19 Taskforce des @BMI_Bund abbilden, aus der diverse innenpolitische Dokumente hervorgegangen sind. @OttoKolbl bit.ly/2TT3R7O

Day 2 of #TurkeyJewishRoadtrip:

On the road from Bursa to Çeşme

While on road lets talk😊

Did you know that #Turkey is an important source of #Kosher food? Hundreds of manufacturers all over the country produce anything from raw material to ready to eat products.
By the way: Kosher food does not mean food that is blessed by a rabbi!

Rather it is food that has been prepared according to Jewish law - there are no mixtures of meat/milk, it is insect free, meat or chicken have to be prepared properly according to Jewish law and more...
The Turkish Jewish community @tyahuditoplumu through @DenetGida which certifies hundreds of plants, as well as the @OrthodoxUnion and @OKKosher have their field representatives inspect plants to assure they are fit for the kosher consumer.

Dance is present in the cosmic waves. If you look closely at our dharma, you will observe that our gods express a lot through dancing. Dancing has an aspect of creation. Modern science uses different terminologies to define the creation of the universe, saying it looks like a
dance. And, you may agree or not, but this is what our gods do, dancing.

If you look at different dance forms of India, you will observe there is not much movement on the surface, but the hands and face have expressions and mudras. However, when you see the dance and its
postures closely, you will know that there is a lot more to our classical dance forms. It has more than just movements.

Several questions have arisen in your minds. How is it possible that throwing hands in the air making some mudras can have logic? It can get hard to accept,

And so Day 3 of my story of God at work in my life as part of #OfGodAndMe #ThisNunsStory series. Yesterday mention of the book, The Silver Sword seems to have struck a chord with many so perhaps its not out of place to mention that today 7th April is #Worldhealthday 1/20
Ian Serraillier ended his talks by showing this photo with the words, ‘No child should ever again have that expression on his face’. My hope this the UK as host of the upcoming #G7 summit will prioritise Universal health care for all. #UCH 2/20
So back to my story. Living at home again and my dream of religious life gone out the window I applied and got a place for September at Brighton College of Education to do a cert ed in biological science & primary education 3/20

Afro-Cuban Goddesses | Cosa Rica

Cosa Rica: The Beauty of Cuban Women
by Abel FL Berriz

Candles. Spotlights. A pool. Dance. Theater. Maybe kabuki?
Graffiti walls. An altar. A shrine.
Electronic music. Dancers. Women. Latino, Cuban women ...

1/

#Afrocubana ImageImageImageImage
Woman-statues. Walking statues. There’s some beatnik-like ambiance. A woman walks and places herself on the chair. A black woman in a fancy yellowish dress. A white paper flower hat in her hair. The sea wind blows her skirt and her flower hat...

#Cuba #Rica #Cosa #AfroCuban ImageImageImageImage
..A trumpet sounds. Or a trombone. Maybe a saxophone. A man dressed like a woman. Is the woman beside me also a model? Cuban drums. Some Afro-Cuban, Latin jazz. The manwoman sweeps the floor around us. The manwoman looks concerned. ...

Hello world! It’s @tim_lytc checking in for the morning. I’m a NEW TALENT Fellow on the programme. I’m a Queer dance creative working across theatre, film and creative tech. My work is centred on advocating for gender, health, race and Queer issues.
My #digitalplacemaking research looks at the potentials of combining #Dance & Movement with #CreativeTechnology to create safer spaces for #Queer folks. Check out my page for a little taste of what I've done✨

bristolbathcreative.org/fellows/tim-lo
At the beginning, I was inspired by past work I had done with @LiminaImmersive @SplashAndRipple @lisamaythomas And their approach to bodies and technology - The conscious effort to create comfortable, inclusive spaces, where audiences could escape and connect at the same time.

One thing I want to say to skeptics of #Cuties who are basing their judgement off how exhibitionist the dance moves are in it, especially in the final competition performance scene, is that while it can be okay to draw boundaries for kids wrt exhibitionism, 1/12
there will be instances where girls cross lines adults don't want them to cross, and there are appropriate and inappropriate ways to rebuke them; it is inappropriate to let boys/men feel entitled to exhibitionist girls'/women's bodies which, like all girls'/women's bodies, 2/12
boys/men do not have dominion over! Dance and sexual relationships have features in common, but not all of the body language that can be seen in both should be seen as explicitly sexual in all instances. While I believe that explicit sexual exhibitionism can occur in dance, 3/12

We celebrate that dance is a place where people of different backgrounds can come together around a common love for self expression through movement. But we are watching our dance communities crumble under the divisive ideology of critical theory/identity politics.
There are still racial injustices in the world. We believe that the best way to fight them is to work together as a community and as equals, regardless of skin color, sex, sexual orientation, gender, etc.
We see the racism happening in the classic sense, but we also see the racism happening within woke ideology and we are standing apart from it.

I came from a nerdy and creative background. ( I was a musician) Numbers and math were never my strength, I recalled I scored 11 in my final math exam in high school. Teachers said I had no hope, so I should just work on doing culinary type of work...cont
I took that bullshit belief till adulthood. Who would have thought I did my Master in Computer Science n now trading the stock markets whichI see numbers EVERYDAY!Copious of decisions were made of numbers. And according to my guru @AsennaWealth who taught me how to trade/finance

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
#vss365
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
#vss365
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.
