I want liberation for people policing each other and virtue signaling and cancel culturing each other. there are people who shame each other for living a certain way… I’m not turning a blind eye to all the BS happening in the world by trying to focus on love and creativity and freedom and improvisation. I quite honestly don’t feel comfortable trying to fight against the bad system which I will not elaborate on because if I say what I really think I will be censored so I will just say my thoughts are private and secret and I will focus on doing my art and walking in the forest and taking good care of my cat and my family and my friends. I don’t have control over what large corporations do that I don’t agree with and I’m not really sure how I can fight them anyway. I think some people are good at fighting against corruption and some people when they fight they only intensify the drama of us verses them. . and it gets worse… so when I live my life the way I live my life it doesn’t mean that I don’t care about all the bad things happening in the world. I just don’t feel like there’s anything I can directly do to solve it so I focus on what I can do to make the world a better place in my own local community and with my family and my friends and with my relationship to myself. some people think it’s selfish to take good care of yourself but the world is not served by me suffering and having a bad relationship with myself. So other people should do whatever works for them but this is what works for me.

thank you Vera Sharav warning us of the patterns of history that do repeat.

i am inspired by survivors of things in history where freedoms were taken away. no matter what the external atmosphere is we can use our minds and imagination to survive as much as possible when we have no control over the powers that be bossing us around etc. find joy in beauty anywhere you can and build on that despite whatever awful things are happening. try and fix the issues if you can, and if not, let go and find beauty anywhere you can.
