What about taking one thought, and moving it forward –actually forward on the floor- a few cm to a different location… like closer to the door, by the window, under the plant, in the bin, in the sink? How to? Step 1- take a piece of paper and write your thought on it. Step 2 – move the piece of paper forward to another location. And if that location is in the bin, congratulations you have just cleaned your head, and without even shampoo or water.
Information versus expectations?
Statistics are information, they are telling us that up to now for a sample or population questioned or observed we have seen that % of behaviours. Once we turn statistics into expectations, we create boxes, immobility and stillness. ARGGG get me out of that box!
Driven to madness by 95%
“I told you this is not a nice behaviour, a third needs to be taken control of, a third will die, a third may make it more or less”…. ARGGG…. How normalising people to an average can ever bring a solution? Maybe 25% would have loved to be seen as possibilities outside of the stats and the average, and given the chance to be more than a number on the bell curve…
The lady above
She stopped me going upstairs to my flat. She is with her son waiting for the elevator. They moved a few months ago, and it’s our first meeting, straight to the point. “You’re the one leaving downstairs our apartment. I hope we are not making too much noise. I don’t know you, but the people above us, we hear them walking.” I pause a moment… “I guess that’s a good sign, that means they’re alive, right? Personally I would like that. And you’re fine, just the right level of noise to confirm I am living in a society with real people around me.” Sometimes tiny details like that makes all the differences.
Even when words are useless…
…It still feels bloody f&*^*^g good to say out loud, as many times as needed: You bloody stupid f*&%^&g idiot. You bloody stupid f*&%^&g idiot. You bloody stupid f*&%^&g idiot. Ideally listening to the album Noise from Archive, track 2.
Theory versus study…
Men prefer smarter women, but only in theory, said a recently published study. Did we really need a study for that? Rather that confirming long established stereotypes, should we not study what the % outside of the main statistics is telling us?
Research among a group of young women (19 to 29 years old) shows that regular sex does improve memory. Oh gosh I hope it was good sex…
Speaking of strength
We know carrots are good to keep us in good mood –and yes this is in addition to the pink bum, or because of it, who knows. Good news carrots are also good for our brain –our prefrontal cortex. Carotenoids have been found as being great cognition enhancers. We have the same finding with spinach. Gosh Popeye had it all figure out!
It’s about the breathing
Another Thursday evening and I am heading to the lake. Last week it was -1˚C air temperature, and 6˚C water temperature, my body about 37˚C, hum… It’s not about the cold, it’s all about the breathing, about the listening of the rhythm of the heart and somewhere it’s all about connecting with my own heart, its own strength. Slowing down movement to strengthen it? Slowing down movement to give it some spring, like the horse collecting before a jump?
On the internet, about 87.100.000 results in about 0,76 seconds, and all these from movies to songs, via documentary, books, quotes, discussion, pictures. That’s a lot of publicity for a simple action which could just be seen as moving one foot after the other one in a single direction. So happy to see moving forward in fashion!
