A7001_for we are girt by sea...


ow that it has become apparent ******alism has gone haywire and bulged it's way into everything (hyperbole) you may feel compelled to speak. What's worse is what we're calling the 'negatie vaccuum' ;) where in the absence of announced opinion etc some will be made for you. 

Is there enough room for everyone to be involved? To believe in logistics is to come to fact to allow all in is to invite bloat, or worse: suffocation.

Most ******alists end up coming to terms with whatever they were in denial of; "they will face what it is was they were runnin from", says Max unwillingly, "but it may take till their bucket kicked." Turmoil. Fate's Entrapment. An inevitable hell of a routine and the group is excited to share what we've been working on. With Max's input and the turmoil closing in, we are finding improvements with leaps and bounds.


In the midst of a culture that often imposes opinions and expectations, there's a quiet strength in embracing the nuances and contradictions that make us uniquely human. This is the art of embracing complexity — a journey of self-discovery that goes beyond labels and categories, inviting us to explore the depths of our thoughts, emotions, and identities.

At the heart of this journey is the courage to be vulnerable. True courage, as we discover, is not the absence of fear but the willingness to be open and honest about our fears, insecurities, and uncertainties. It's about facing our inner turmoil with resilience, finding strength in our vulnerabilities, and forging deeper connections with others.

Central to this narrative is the art of listening—a skill that transforms conversations into meaningful dialogues. In a world filled with noise and conflicting voices, listening becomes an act of empathy and understanding, bridging gaps and fostering genuine connections.

Every act of defiance against societal norms and pressures plants a seed of change. These acts, whether small or significant, individual or collective, contribute to shaping a more inclusive, compassionate, and just society. It's about recognizing the power of our actions, no matter how seemingly insignificant they may appear.

Amidst life's tumultuous ups and downs, there's immense power in embracing the present moment. The power of now lies in finding peace, joy, and fulfillment in the here and now, rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.

In essence, navigating life's dance of identities is a journey of resilience, authenticity, and mindful living. It's about embracing complexity, finding strength in vulnerability, fostering genuine connections, and sowing seeds of positive change in the world around us.
