I do eulogize about #Lee #Kuan #Yew from time to time when one needs to seek guidance from a role model.
When asked why didn't #China collapse like the #USSR.
His reply was that the former didn't embrace #glasnost and #perestroika together like the latter did, and paid the price.
Perestroika(Restructuring) began with the Open policy in China under #Deng Xiao Peng.
Gorbachev gets all the wrong credit for its introduction in the East.
Yes, Glasnost (Openness) was a Soviet attempt to embrace human freedoms.
The Soviet Masses were shocked by it.
Chaos ensued.
Good documentaries.
Brings back my childhood memories.

Years prior to this picture (IAIP Conf '18) I had come across Abu Zayd al-Balkhi's original manuscript and written to Dr. Malik Badri about my findings comparing Balkhi's 9th C work to DSM-5

He wrote back encouraging me to publish in mainstream medical peer reviewed journals 1/
With Dr.Malik Badri in the front row, I presented how Balkhi (9th C) may have been the first in history to correctly classify, diagnose and propose functional treatments for #OCD and #phobia an entire MILLENNIUM before the European psychologists credited with both discoveries 2/
Dr. Malik Badri was so proud that day 💔

He gave me a standing ovation when I shared how the historians of medicine who peer reviewed my papers said they re-write the history of psychology and Muslim contributions to the field

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.

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.

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.
