So … another mass shooting in the US.
I pray that today will be the day when a US majority of voters and politicians will see the wisdom in restricting gun laws, starting with the state of Nevada, where people are allowed to carry weapons and do not have to register themselves as a gun-owner and are also allowed to sell guns privately.… Read more
Lots of saber rattling going on in and around NK these days. with missiles tested, fired and nukes tested and fired. So far not at any living target.
I was really scared of nuclear war when I was a teen, during the latter days of the Cold War – which could’ve turned Hot.… Read more
A day with my first client in a month and then back to home-work with baby Jay and all. Life could go on like this seemingly forever, routine – something I do yearn for (but with more income coming in). Except that this is not real life.
It is a bubble.… Read more
I just had the thought that Donald Trump is like one of those kids with ADHD I’ve looked after in earlier years, in various special kindergartens.
He doesn’t mind anger and outrage as attention as long as it is attention. Because everything is about Donald Trump, it was never about America – much less the Republicans (a party he has not supported until recently).… Read more
Yesterday, I heard ex-FBI-director Comey’s testimony in my earphones whilst working on a customer pitch in the Royal Library (because I had tired of the regular office space).
Today a lot of people shout ‘Watergate’ and a lot of other people don’t seem to think it is so bad yet – for the US president.… Read more
Terror. In London – again. Plastered all over the old news media – interviews with bystanders, victims, TERROR TERROR TERROR in the headlines.
What the hell am I going to say to my son when he gets old enough to understand?
I mean, isn’t it a crazy, crazy world we live in?… Read more
I found out about the bomb that had killed a score of youngsters at a concert in Manchester, while I was walking with Jay’s carriage at 3 AM in the morning to help him calm down.
Not again, huh?
Terror attacks. It’s all a blur sometimes. Like … it’s never-ending.
And like the world is becoming more dangerous by the day …
Easter Friday, and thinking again about time and all things passing. And beauty. So I found an old blog post, I’d like to share again … It seemed fitting:
I am often amazed of how much the world appears like … a mosaic.
It’s not black. It’s not white. It’s not grey.… Read more
I just read about something new and awful Trump has been doing and saying, Gawd help me. I know it won’t help one bit, reading about all his BS.
What I know will help a bit, though, is remembering that I was born the same summer that was to be President Nixon’s last in the White House before Watergate forced him to resign.… Read more
I was just about to write an angry comment to some idiot.
Yes, on Facebook – where else?
The idiot wrote in a Facebook-group for a national TV-radio programme about politics that he “didn’t care about Somali refugees because they were not [our] countrymen”.
He then wrote that Somalis should not stay in our country because they were not us.… Read more
Just watched the press about the press conference of soon-to-be President of the World, Mr. Donald Trump.
I wanted to be angry with him and the people who elected him.
And the broken system that got him elected, even if he didn’t get the most votes.
I wanted to write something angry in a Facebook-group or a forum.… Read more
In the evenings, after many years, I’ve finally decided just to draw. Who cares if it’s pretty?
So I draw a story again, like I did in my younger days, say, from 1988-1994-ish.
It’s a story, I just make up as I go along. About a girl who can travel between parallel universes.… Read more
Didn’t get that much done today on the upcoming company or applying for jobs. Christmas took over, at least for some hours while I went shopping.
On my way to the train I felt ‘grey’ inside; like I’ve done from time to time in recent years. Like life has just become bland, stuck, lost its magic.… Read more
I donated about 35 dollars this evening to the Red Cross’ efforts to save children and everybody else in Syria. I just couldn’t stand reading about it in the news anymore.
Aleppo is falling – even more than it has fallen before, and in so many dark ways.
Thousands of innocent people trapped in there, like a cage of hell.… Read more
