I just read what you said Via (facebook) and I'd like to add, its the foundation you build upon that determines, what you want to progress into, be it simply of thought or action... one must build complex yet keep the foundation of the print simple. 

zafluka:
the context I'm trying to express is, free your thoughts, so the thoughts you seek don't reform to something already built, a collective of opinions shouldn't stop you from expressing the very idea of that. 

I'm a Yank, but I found your UK politics group and found it fascinating. You seem remarkably passionate and wise. Have you considered entering into politics? The world needs people like you.

The scandal when my nude modelling was discovered... Haha ;-)

Unfortunately, that's a valid point I should have thought of. :( If you ran here, I'd definitely vote for you over another Bush, that's for damn sure.

Sounds like elections aren't going so well over there. Sorry to hear it. Hope it doesn't bum you out

But in a way it's quite sad and strange to see how divided this island is, it's literally yellow in Scotland (SNP) and blue in England (Conservative), does that tell you something?! But hopefully it's the start of some positive progress. Glad you guys voted someone more evolved in!

@annalee This mayoral election and our last presidential election have given me faith in the moderate middle ground.  I don't hang out there but I never believed that it really existed.  The conservative/liberal split is something that I find quite troubling. I posted that TED talk and a link to some interesting sociology papers detailing some of the ways conservative/liberal people think and make decisions but it drew more anger than discussion.  The thing that is most difficult for meis that the same information can be looked at and seen two different ways even when it is totally objective.  One of the key difference is hope/fear I think.  There is a book "The Culture of Fear" that discusses why we shouldn't be afraid of serial killers but the drop in real wages and the loss of civil rights.  It is very liberal and it is on my "to read" shelf.  On my conservative father-in-laws shelf is a book about how to trust your instincts to avoid violent situations called "the Gift of Fear" (it is probably a very good book).  I felt like I was in a creepy dream when I saw it as the contrast describes the split in choice to weight values differently that goes into our different decision making.  He also had a "Nothing Like it in the World" that describes the building of the trans continental railroad, but about the same time that came out another book "railroaded" was published describing how that period of history was the birth of political lobbyists as a component of the political system in this country (which is a big problem with the way our government runs). I get that I have a total willingness to accept what re-enforces my world view and reject what challenges it but I can get with a change in world view based on truth. How to speak to someone who processes information with a fundamentally different set of filters is still such a struggle.  Any insights you may have would be welcome (references to old postings is welcome as maybe you settled this all back in 2009)

I want to wish you a huge congratulations for having "8" earn Photoset of the Day! It is an exquisite set and totally earned the distinction. 

You definitely are an example of lovely life, you know ? For me, my firm conviction - good in this world that you are here ! I don't mean just SG - but it is how I have come to know about you. No, am a little more glad - when you are around or come to mind. Thank you, lovely one !   - C

The Har on the Forth, if you're ever lucky enough to catch it, the scenery becomes even more breathtaking   https://suicidegirls.com/members/geekyfox/album/2223921/har-on-the-forth/

Hey Lady, I realize you probably get lots of messages, plz check for Lordskrappy, I put words to the Parallel Universes set that you may like. Keep up the great work! 

With your love of Poetics, I would think that you are familiar with Richard Thompsons body of work. I've like him ever since Fairport Convention. Among the top songs of his I like is "Vincent Black Lightening 1952". I think that you might find a Set idea from the lines: "I've seen you on the corners and cafes it seems, red hair and black leather my favorite color scheme". And: "I see angels on aerials in leather and chrome...". Two of the covers of it I like are: Mary Lou Lord- she did a busker version in the Boston tube stations. Red Molly ( I wonder where they got their name)- a 3 women trio, mainly bluegrass style. But I was surprised at how many people have covered it ( youtube browsing) and all make it their own. Stay excellent, which ever way you use the concept.

Yeah he's a great guy, I've actually seen him doing live solo stuff with my dad a few times :-)
