Every so often I find it fun to try and re-articulate my worldview from scratch, often in the hope that there will be some new or interesting bit to it
1. We are cluelessly born into the middle of a bustling, chaotic story. We are tiny ants on a leaf on a branch on a tree, and everyone around us certainly seems to be in a great hurry
2. We start out as extremely local beings, embedded in our families, our peers, our communities. We inherit their beliefs, their aspirations, their traumas, their flags - most of which they inherited in turn. As children we are onboarded into their rituals and superstitions

ಸಿಂಧೂ ಸರಸ್ವತಿ ಸಂಸ್ಕೃತಿಯ ನಗರಗಳಲ್ಲಿ, ಮತ್ತು ಮಧ್ಯಪೂರ್ವ ದೇಶಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ನಡೆದ ಉತ್ಖನನ ಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ದೊರೆತ ಆಧಾರಗಳಿಂದ ೪೦೦೦ ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಹಿಂದೆಯೇ ಈ ಎರಡೂ ಭಾಗಗಳ ನಡುವೆ ವ್ಯಾಪಾರ ವ್ಯವಹಾರಗಳಿದ್ದದ್ದು ತಿಳಿದು ಬಂದಿದೆ.

ಇದೇ ರೀತಿ, ಸುಮಾರು ೧೮೦೦ ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಹಿಂದಿನ ಒಂದು ಗ್ರೀಕ್ ನಾಟಕದದಲ್ಲೇ ಕನ್ನಡ ಅಥವಾ ಕನ್ನಡದಂತಹ ಭಾಷೆಯ ಕೆಲವು ಪದಗಳು ಕಂಡು ಬಂದಿರುವುದನ್ನು ನೋಡಿ, ವಿದ್ವಾಂಸರು ಭಾರತದ ಪಶ್ಚಿಮ ಕರಾವಳಿಗೂ, ಗ್ರೀಸ್, ರೋಮ್ ಮೊದಲಾದ ರಾಷ್ಟ್ರಗಳ ನಡುವೆಯೂ ವ್ಯಾಪಾರ ಸಂಬಂಧಗಳು ಇದ್ದಿರಬೇಕೆಂದು ಊಹಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car
My mom is a very #strong #woman that taught me #values, to #workhard and to be #self-sufficient #StrongWomen #StrongFamily

#Intelligence is a response to a new situation, not out of your past memories but from your present awareness, this very moment.

Intelligence is a spontaneous #responsibility. It has been misunderstood. It has become almost equivalent to #duty. The #reality is different.
There has been a perennial conflict between #intelligence and #intellect.

The man of intellect thinks that he is #intelligent because he knows so much. He has accumulated a great heritage of #knowledge, he is burdened with all kinds of #information.
The man of #intelligence is innocent; he functions moment to moment, his functioning has a freshness and a beauty. But to find intelligence one has to go beyond the mind. #Meditation is the way.

In #reality there is no such things like Great Team, Great Organization, Great Nations. They only exist in our mind, it is only a consequence.

Only Great #Individuals exists and when they come together, #Team, #Organization and #Nation happen which are extraordinary.
All your efforts to change the consequences (Team, Organization, Nation) directly will be arduous and over exaggerated and in the end it will bring misery to all individuals who participated in the journey
All efforts must go be invested in #Individuals

There are only two ways in which investment will be fruitful
1. Invest in Individual's uniqueness and skills
2. Invest in Individual's consciousness

LIFE HAPPENS | “Sho, do you cook?”, my date asked. I replied jauntily, “I used to but not anymore. I now have access to a chef and can afford to order what I like eating.” #Thread #Life #Relationships
My date followed up by asking, “If your boyfriend asked you to cook for him, would you?” I grinned, as I realised my date was sadly playing from a script. I replied, “I don’t have a guy I like who’s asking me to cook, so I can’t say.”
I think my date thought I was being coy. But, I wasn’t. I was just being honest. A while ago, I decided to deal in reality and not hypotheticals. I have tried and failed to control life. All my effort got me was an anxiety problem and therapy.

#IBelieve..

This is #TooGoodNotToShare..

We spend the best years of our lives waiting for a #Miracle when the miracle is #Life itself

We wait for approval,we wait for promotion,we wait for the bonus,we wait for freedom,we wait for a revelation AND in all this,we forget to live
Today, I make this promise to myself. No more waiting. I will live each day like it was the last day of my life. And I will live each day like it is the first day of the rest of my life with no regrets of the day that was..
I will be #Courageous.
Not courageous like a #Soldier under fire, but courageous enough to not wait. Courageous enough to #Live every moment to the hilt.

#Courageous enough to know that the only losses I should fear are the loss of #Love and #Respect, for myself & for those around me.

It is generally around these festival days I miss my hometown very much -ಜನವರಿಯ ಜಾತ್ರೆ. ನೆಹರೂ ಬಟರ್ ಸ್ಟೋರ್. ಮಂಗಳವಾರ ಸಂತೆ. ಚಳಿಗಾಲದ ಕಾವಳ. ಅದರ ಜೊತೆಗೆ ಸೊಗಡಿನ ಅವರೇಕಾಯಿ.ರಾತ್ರಿ ಓಡಾಡುವಾಗ ಜೀವವೇ ಬಾಯಿಗೆ ಬರುವಂತೆ ಬೊಗಳುವ ಬೀದಿ ನಾಯಿಗಳು. ಸುಧಾ ಹೋಟೆಲ್ಲಿನ ಮಸಾಲೆ ದೋಸೆ. ಕಟ್ಟಿನ ಕೆರೆಯ ಬಸ್ ಸ್ಟಾಂಡ್. (1/n)
ಜಾತ್ರೆ ಮಾಳಕ್ಕೆ ಹೋಗುವ ಅಲಂಕಾರ ಮಾಡಿರುವ ರಾಸುಗಳು. ಪಿಕ್ಚರ್ ಪ್ಯಾಲೇಸ್ ಮುಂದೆ ಚೌಕಾಸಿ ವ್ಯಾಪಾರ. ಗಂಧದ ಕೋಟಿ. ಸಂಪಿಗೆ ರಸ್ತೆ. ವರುಷದಲ್ಲಿ ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಮಾತ್ರ ಹತ್ತು ದಿನ ತೆಗೆಯುವ ಊರ ದೇವತೆಯ ಗುಡಿ. ಮೂರು ತಿಂಗಳ ಸೋನೆ ಮಳೆ. ಗಣಪತಿ ಪೆಂಡಾಲಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಕದ್ರಿ ಗೋಪಾಲನಾಥ್ ಸ್ಯಾಕ್ಸಫೋನ್ ಕಚೇರಿ. ಡಬಲ್ ಟ್ಯಾಂಕ್ ಬಳಿ ಆಡುವ ಹುಡುಗರು. (2/n)
ಆಂಜನೇಯನ ದೇವಸ್ಥಾನದಲ್ಲಿ ಸಂಸ್ಕೃತ ಶಾಲೆ. ವರ್ಷಗಟ್ಟಲೆ ಟಾರು ಕಾಣದೇ ಮಳೆಗಾಲದಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಸರಿನ ಓಟಕ್ಕೆ ಲಾಯಕ್ಕಾದ ರಸ್ತೆಗಳು. ಪಾರ್ಕಿನ ನಡುವೆ ಯಾರೂ ನೋಡಲು ಬರದ ಮ್ಯೂಸಿಯಂ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಸುಂದರ ಶಿಲ್ಪಗಳು. ಮಂಗಳೂರು ಪಾತ್ರೆ ಅಂಗಡಿಯ ಮುಂದೆ ಹೊಳೆಯುವ ತಾಮ್ರದ ಕೊಡಗಳು. ಹಳದೀ ಬಣ್ಣದ ನದೀ ದೇವತೆಯ ಕೈಯಲ್ಲಿ ಒಣಗಿನಿಂತ ನೀರಿನ ಕೊಡ. (3/n)

"God, I want my future back." Those were the words I whispered to God two weeks ago, while I was going through the greatest health scare of my life. #Thread #Health #Life
In the midst of the tests and various medical consultations, it occurred to me that my life had stopped. My symptoms limited my movements and where I could go. So, I couldn't plan and I couldn't project forward.
Things like traveling or dating went out of the window. I was stuck on finding a solution to my health challenge. My tests are still ongoing. I'm still seeing doctors, but we think we now know what's wrong. And so, I am hopeful.

An interesting story as shared by a friend @soodparivar. Found it #TooGoodNotToShare ...

The #CockroachTheory for #SelfDevelopment

At a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and sat on a lady.

She started screaming out of fear.
With a #panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started screaming and jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach

Her reaction was contagious as everyone else in her group also started to panic
The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but it landed on another lady in the group and it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama

The waiter rushed forward to their rescue

In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter

Wow, #epibookclub, we’re officially halfway through the #bookofwhy!

Chapter 6 is a doozy... we’re going to learn all about paradoxes!! Get ready to have your mind blown!! 🤯🤯🤯
Given last week’s tragic fail on paradox gifs, I made you our very own #epibookclub gif! It’s paradox time!!

(Please be kind this is my very first homemade gif 😂😂)
I like the chapter set up this week: @yudapearl explains importance of spending time working out the paradoxes...they can give us insight into how people process causal information. He says these are paradoxes b/c they straddle the rungs of the #ladderofcausation

So, up we go!

I saw George Takei speak last night about his life and career.
A life that has seen Japanese internment camps, the violence that accompanied the civil rights era, the struggle for LGBT recognition and basic dignities.
And a career that saw him offered roles as humiliating stereotypes and having to keep his most important relationships a secret to protect it.

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @Womans_Place_UK #Transwomen do face special challenges but they remain #bio #logical #males but it is fine for them #Gender express as ‘women’ but with the best will in the world, they remain #bio #logically #male @WomenEqualities @Commonswomequ @PennyMordaunt @MariaMillerUK @LesleySemmens

1) Hard times are often blessings in disguise. Let go and let life strengthen you. No matter how much it hurts, hold your head up and keep going. This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a rough day, a bad month, or a crappy year. Truth be told,
2) sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your spirit needs most. Your past was never a mistake if you learned from it. So take all the crazy experiences and lessons and place them in a box labeled “Thank You.''

My lovelies, the comic will be late.
I need to chase down #paperwork to keep my #life humming along, and they manifested with a super tight #deadline. cuz they do that sometimes.

The image here is the raw ink of a watercolour
It's a copy of the image on the back of my flag that I hang on my walker when I go to DCC, or NDK.

On the flag it reads "LOOK AT MY BUTT!" "And come see the comics on the other side!"

Folks have asked for a print (I'm gonna try)
I am hopeful that today's comic will post around 8-10pm MST.

(well, i'm also hopeful that I'll get it all done earlier than that too. I am an optimist at heart)

Went to Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan today. Official population at 53,967, according to @UNHCR as of February 2018. All Syrian #refugees.

In many ways it was not what I expected.
First thing you notice is how remote the location is — some 100 kms east of Amman; 20 kms from Azraq town; 75 kms to Saudi Arabia; 255 kms to Iraq; and 90 kms to the Syrian border — from which its inhabitants fled.
At the same time, the harshness of the setting — a hardscrabble, sprawling 15 square km patch, scratched, etched and stretched out of endless rolling desert.

The perimeter was equally formidable, with security fencing, official patrols, check points and razor wire.
