No More Frost?

My studies are getting enjoyable, I'm so surprised, but everything seems changed. I hope it lasts!

Fun in the Sun - study

My Suburbia - studies I

It was and still is a place of asphalt and stones, stones and asphalt. Before the Internet, kids playing in the streets. Now they are sent to do organized sport instead. We got too much money, I guess. The houses were built before Norway struck oil, but often ambitiously rebuilt after. Flats built when builders thought the people living there would not be able to afford cars. Groves of tress in the middle of everything. Pines. Woods near by. Schoolyards full of asphalt, cold, heat, and dust. Secret places. Offices and semi industrial buildings. Gardens turning into high rises. My heart cries out for the land and the place I grew up. Why are we so blind and deaf and without hope?

Die Nacht - Etude

A trip down memory lane. Die Nacht used to be a song I played in concerts, a very old favorite, Strauss being food for thought.

Anti Consumption

I'm shopped out. I feel like a hamster, mostly due to to wanting to get everything in order, but I'm shopped out and tired of "invisible practice" (expression for Gail Sher's book One Continous Mistake, four noble truths for writers) - sorting everything out so I'm able to get the real job done. I got everything I need, so no more buying anything except food! Hopefully this posting will keep me in check!

“We should always be clear that animal exploitation is wrong because it involves speciesism. And speciesism is wrong because, like racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-semitism, classism, and all other forms of human discrimination, speciesism involves violence inflicted on members of the moral community where that infliction of violence cannot be morally justified. But that means that those of us who oppose speciesism necessarily oppose discrimination against humans. It makes no sense to say that speciesism is wrong because it is like racism (or any other form of discrimination) but that we do not have a position about racism. We do. We should be opposed to it and we should always be clear about that.”
