I'm not lovin' it, @McDonalds!

"To the rich and stupid, many of the economic measures necessary to stop this virus are so unthinkable that it would be preferable for millions to die. This is extravagantly wrong on more than just a moral level—forcing sick and contagious people back to work to save Wall Street puts all of us at risk."

I am reminded of another quote, by Alanis Obomsawin (according to Quote Investigator), just now:
"When the last tree is cut, the last fish is caught, and the last river is polluted; when to breathe the air is sickening, you will realize, too late, that wealth is not in bank accounts and that you can’t eat money."

Looking forward to learning more about how I can best support my neighbors of Asian descent who are currently at an elevated risk of being victims of hate crime. # #

As someone who has been socially isolated almost full-time for close to four entire years now, I've become adept at navigating the experiences which the rest of the world is only just beginning to explore.

If you are having trouble coping with the thoughts and feelings that accompany such a sudden transition in your life, and you would like to talk to someone who's been doing this for a really long time, you have an open invitation to reach out to me.

Do I happen to know anybody who has good accounting skills and an interest in donating some time to a charitable cause? Prior experience with platforms such as Open Collective (https://opencollective.com/) is a plus! Asking for a friend... #

TL;DR: High salt intake temporarily negatively impacts cognitive performance.

What a difference a little perspective makes...!

This probably made me laugh a bit too much than it should have done 😁

Spoiler alert: The last chapter of the book (of books) seems to be at odds with this sentiment... Let's hope, for humanity's sake, that @Pontifex Francis is correct! 93∴

“When we have no memory or little imagination of an alternative to a life centered on work,” writes theorist Kathi Weeks, “there are few incentives to reflect on why we work as we do and what we might wish to do instead.”

As people across the world are having their regular habits and routines disrupted, the outside world is becoming an unfamiliar place. Human beings crave familiarity at a fundamental of our existence...

As time goes on, and our collective experience of the outside world becomes increasingly unfamiliar, we must find that aspect of our conscious awareness that remains unchanging within each of us. Our sense of familiarity must no longer be derived from external sources which are ultimately beyond out control. Instead, we must learn how to feel at peace within ourselves, in silence and in stillness.

In order to do this, we need to make some important discoveries about ourselves and about each other. We need to realize why we are so compelled to identify our sense of self with everything that isn't actually us! Why can't we remain alone and idle with nothing to occupy our attention but our own thoughts and our own feelings?

I believe it's because we are trying to escape ourselves, our memories, our past, our trauma, our shadows. If we are to emerge through this # crisis as a species without modern civilization crumbling to pieces, we must come to terms with certain fundamental truths about who we are.

It's time for the world to awaken. #
