Any Landing You Can Walk Away From…

Inspiring Critical Thinking and Community via Books, Lessons, and Story

Ok, P. this one’s for you (I hope it’s ok…), and T., too:

“Do you want to fly today, or not?”

Since he was putting it that way, what could I say? He did know this plane better than I did, having flown it twice a day all week, and yes, he was the one with over 1000 hours of flight time. So, who was I to quote a memorized rule book at him, a decorated combat pilot deigning to teach a snot-nosed teenager how to fly? And for free, no less.

“Yes, Sir.”

“Then let’s go.”

I throttled up, taking over officially as Pilot In Command with the ritual nod to my instructor, and announcing my take off to the open air field, even though no one else was in the pattern. My fellow students were standing back by the open office door, already pointing and starting to…

Sueño de amor

Lo escribí para usted, tras despertar de un sueño de amor

Los sueños de amor son colección de los enamorados. Se entiende que significan citas nocturnas y encuentros tan anhelados, huellas indelebles que quedan cual constancia del paso de dos locos y ocurrentes que desafían el cortinaj de las horas, miradas silenciosas y palabras pronunciadas en algún puente de cristal. Los sueños de amor son exclusivos de quienes se saben uno con el otro, libres y plenos, con identidad propia y con las llaves de paraísos infinitos. Como que tienen el permiso de Dios. Pertenecen a los enamorados que pasean en una estación y en otra, en primavera y en invierno, en verano y en otoño, cuando uno vive y duerme en el mundo y en las estrellas, en el cielo y en las piedras que cubren los riachuelos…

Vax up and mask up: How experts say B.C. can counter rising COVID-19 case numbers |

As of Friday, about 58 per cent of eligible British Columbians was fully vaccinated, while about 80 per cent have had their first dose.

“This is my main concern right now,” Conway said.

“I would like to encourage all British Columbians and all Canadians that the moment you are eligible to receive your second shot and that is made available to you, run, don’t walk to the vaccination centre and be part of the solution.”

Cronica unor iubiri programate

ore de drum

Bangkok, 2017

Zona hotelieră s-a dezvoltat de jur-împrejurul vechiului cartier oriental,  din fericire încă păstrat cu tot farmecul său autentic. Clădirile decrepite fac notă discordantă cu zgârie-norii. Așa cum e și firesc, viitorul ajunge din urmă trecutul.


Cu o arhitectură elegantă, aici sunt concentrate hoteluri de cinci stele, printre cele mai bune din Asia. Un job hotelier reprezintă ținta supremă a tinerilor din regiunile sărace ale Thailandei și oportunitatea de a nu ajunge la cheremul proxeneților.


Angajate pe posturi modeste în orice hotel de lux, tinerele pot avea șansa de a fi remarcate de un occidental. Deși Thailanda ni se pare o destinație de vis, femeile de acolo au un singur scop, să fugă spre vest cât văd cu ochii.


În acest fel, își pot scăpa familiile de sărăcie și își asigură un statut demn, fiind cunoscute umilințele la care sunt supuse după căsătoria cu bărbații thailandezi. Însă, dacă nu…

Voting Is A RIGHT, Not A Privilege!!!

Filosofa's Word

In 1965, Congress passed, and President Lyndon Johnson signed into law the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  Please note and remember that this bill was NOT titled the Voting Privilege Act of 1965, but the Voting RIGHTS Act … rights, not privileges.

Several constitutional amendments, the 15th, the 19th, and the 26th, require that voting rights of U.S. citizens cannot be abridged on account of race, color, previous condition of servitude, sex, or age (18 and older).  Are we all in agreement here that every person over the age of 18 has the right to vote?

However, according to a recent PEW Research study, white people don’t think that voting is a right, but rather a privilege that one must earn!  It’s no damn wonder, then, that 42 states are in the process of drafting or passing legislation that would make it far more…

COVID-19 in Jamaica: Wary of a Third Wave

Petchary's Blog

The Ministry of Health and Wellness held one of their regular press briefings on April 29. It was not hard to detect a change of tone – and it was quite disturbing. There was hardly a glimmer of a smile, and at one point both Minister Tufton and the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) actually looked distressed. The body language spoke loudly.

There was no major self-congratulation over the number of new cases, which has declined quite a bit. There was no complacency, although our hospitals are under rather less pressure than they were a few weeks ago and there was a sense of relief that our beleaguered health care workers are getting some respite. As of yesterday (April 30) there were 199 new cases – the highest number being in the northern parish of St. Ann – and the positivity rate was an unimpressive 21.2 percent (our average positivity…
