My rating: <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1366206306">4 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
Busssi shows us a world within another world ; that of people of color and the prejudices which the tourists do not see.  He describes the island so well that you feel as if you were there, and finishes with a final word so moving it demands thought, and even an immediate re-read.  (Also may go well with <a href="http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/353598.Black_Feminist_Thought__Knowledge__Consciousness__and_the_Politics_of_Empowerment" title="Black Feminist Thought  Knowledge, Consciousness, and the Politics of Empowerment by Patricia Hill Collins">Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness, and the Politics of Empowerment</a>, many thanks to Ruth for her review: <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1356704325?book_show_action=false&from_review_page=1" target="_blank">https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...</a>.<br><br>Shira HoloceneHuman Era Destinie<br>24 August, 12015 HE<br><br>BUSSI nous montre le monde dans un autre monde, celle de gens de couleur et les préjuges invisibles  aux touristes.  Il décrit l’île si bien qu'on se sent la-ba même, et fini la dernier mot si jaillissant qu'on ne peut pas s’arrêter de y penser, et même le relire tout de suite.   <br><br>24,8,12 015 èH( ère Holocène ou ère Humaine)<br>ShiraDest<br><br>

     In thinking of why I love to run, I recall the feeling of freedom when running, which I never found elsewhere, even from flying (as a student pilot flying was more of a kill-joy for me!).  And a sense of comaraderie that, in thinking back, I suddenly realized is linked to one of my very few happy childhood memories.

     My father sent me to a DC Army National Guard summer camp when I was 14, where I met the first 'foreign' friend, and the only person who ever ran with me.  He was a dark muscular guy from Tanzania, and also the only person there with whom I could share -we talked as we ran, or, I ran, while he merely jogged.  I appreciated his effort to  to accomodate my slower stride, and his attentive listening.  I can only hope that I was as attentive a listener as he was.  I recall being fascinated to hear about his home in Africa, yet irritated that everyone assumed we were dating.  Sex was the farthest thing from my mind (I have no clue how he felt) at the time.  The fact that someone took the time to share his thoughts with me, listen to mine, and that we could stay in step together was the cornerstone of our friendship.  Sadly, we lost touch after that camp, but I have always recalled and sought that same comaraderie, brotherhood.

    So now I can finally come back to running, and hope perhaps to find a similar friendship.  See <a href="http://moncarnet.org/afficher-carnet-de-shiradest&an=2015">My training so far: 2015</a>

   I am too tired to translate this at the moment, but since I am mostly writing it for a franco-hispanophone person I know, I will finish later.

1re km en 8:17
donc, 2me km = 7:57 mais terminé avec plus d'effort

J'ai trottiné plus vite aujourd'hui et étonnement, je m'a senti beaucoup meilleure en trottinant plus vite qu'en 'trottinant' aussi lentement possible !

The ground-breaking novella Herland was a good start, but lacked a vision of fully inclusive equality. The MEOW Vision builds on Gilman’s ideas, with the aim of Fully Inclusive Equality.

The Goals (allowing each person to contribute fully):

1. Each person, as a child, must learn to swim (or at least float).
2. Each child must learn emotional/psychological self-defense and physical self-defense to the greatest extent possible, in a Gandhian context.
(1 and 2 are part of the pre-Adulthood criteria: http://meowdate.dreamwidth.org/6177.html ...)

3. Each child, at birth, receives half a hectare of land, non-alienable. He or she may rent, lend or swap the land, but always remains the owner. Where ever the location, it should have a well and be arable.
4. Fresh water for ever person (free!)
5. Each family should have a book in the local public library, containing the autobiography of every adult in the family (which means that each person needs free time and the means to write his or her autobiography).

(the same Goals in Spanish:)
—-
Un programa de Igualdad y Salud para Todos

Las Metas (para que todos pueden contribuir lo mejor):

1. Cada quien, de niño, debe aprender nadar
2. Que cada quien de niño aprende defenderse
3. Que cada bebe, al nacer, recibe .5 hectarios de terreno, que nunca se puede desprender. Se lo puede alquilar o prestar, pero siempre sigue esta persona como dueño o dueña del terreno. Que sea donde sea, será con un poso de agua y capaz de agricolar.
4. Agua potable para cada persona
5. Que cada familia tenga un libro en la biblioteca publica, con resumen del autobiografía de cada persona de la familia (eso quiere decir que cada quien tenga el tiempo libre y los recursos para escribir su autobiografia)

Peace,

¿Porqué debemos, en los Estados Unidos Americanos, recrear El Cuerpo Civil de Conservación (CCC)?

Por que necesitamos los desafíos. Claro que nuestra sociedad tiene muchos problemas, y con creces. La guerra parece ser el último desafío. Pero podemos evitar la guerra si eligimos encontrar maneras de cooperar entre nosotros.

William James decía, en su ensayo de 1910 que lleva por título

El Equivalente Moral de La Guerra, que:

” la guerra contra la guerra no será ni de vacaciones ni una fiesta.”

El tenía razon, por supuesto. Albert Einstein estaba de acuerdo. Su Plan de Dos Porciento admitía que no es facil convencer ni siquiera 2% de la gente a dejar sus armas. Pero un desafío para nuestra sociedad puede llegar en otro paquete, como hemos visto durante la Gran Depresión. La disciplina de la gente normal, trabajando juntas.

“”Hemos de hacer que nuevas energías y audacias continúen la masculinidad a la que la mente militar tanto se aferra. Las virtudes marciales han de ser el cemento endurecedor; la valentía, el desdén por lo débil, la cesión del interés privado, la obediencia…”

(traducción de

http://www.unav.es/gep/TheMoralEquivalentOfWar.html )

Una nueva llamada para El Cuerpo Civil de Conservación (CCC) lo haría. Desafío, disciplina, cooperación y la infraestructura para resolver los problemas hondas y divisas que conducen a la guerra.

Escribiré más pronto. Mis disculpas por qualquier falta de ortografía en esta primera entrada.
