The Perfect Harmony

From The Quill

The beat syncs with my heart in perfect harmony. My heart has been dancing to the rhythm of life, finding love in the lovely romance that it is.

It has been long since I last lusted over the life I live- long since I let the wind touch my bare skin- long since I leaned into the curves of my own smiles.

Deep in my heart I know I will rise again. I know, one day I will wake up to find myself gasping at the sight of the myriad of colours, ; I will hug each tree on my way to work.

Until then, I am waiting; staying patient and embracing each emotion under the Sun that chooses to greet me. I am nurturing my garden, trying to find my music- taking life one step at a time-

And one day, just like that- I know I will reach…

Teens: Know why it is important to vaccinate them against Covid-19 – Magic Mixture を

“Teenagers are a group considered to be at low risk for severe forms of covid-19, this is a fact. However, they transmit in the same way as adults. That is, if we think about reaching a collective immunity, it is necessary that they are also vaccinated ”, says Eduardo Jorge Fonseca, pediatric doctor and member of the immunization department of Brazilian Society of Pediatrics (SBP).

“It is clear that we have reduced cases of death and hospitalization because of the acceleration of vaccine”, completes the specialist.

How the Dixie fire was stopped just shy of 1 million acres – Los Angeles Times

Fewer wildfires and more controlled burns — as well as the reintroduction of Indigenous burning practices that were aggressively stamped out by fire-suppression policies — may be the best path forward for the state, and will help create a mosaic of burned areas that could keep wildfires like the Dixie from spreading out of control, he added.

But transitioning into more of a “stewardship mode,” where fuel treatments are performed and maintained at scale, will require renewed effort and resources. Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday signed a $15-billion climate package, the largest such investment in state history, which will include about $1.5 billion toward wildfire response and forest resilience.

And President Biden’s expansive infrastructure bill, if passed, would allow for more than $3 billion for wildfire-risk reduction, including mechanical thinning, controlled burns, infrastructure projects and structural defense, all of which will most certainly be needed in the years to come.

The alternative to doing that work, multiple experts said, is a future of far more Dixie fires.

Incapaz de restaurar un mundo que ha roto, el ser humano ambiciona conquistar el universo

Incapaz de restaurar el mundo que ha roto, el ser humano ambiciona conquistar otros planetas, no con la idea de extender la vida y transformar el universo en hogar apacible y en paraíso colectivo; su anhelo e interés consisten, principalmente, en dominar, someter y explotar a la gente, a los pueblos de la Tierra, saquear riquezas y controlar todo, en una guerra sin tregua, simplemente para endiosarse por un rato. Ha olvidado, parece, que su estancia en el mundo es temporal y que la verdadera dicha, antes de proseguir la caminata a otras fronteras, se basa en el bien que pueda derramar para sí y en beneficio de los demás. Resulta incongruente desgarrar, arrebatar y aniquilar la vida en un entorno que le es natural y propio y, a la vez, buscarla en otros planetas. Ni siquiera ha explorado…

Barbara Crane Navarro

“Ultimately, Nomadland’s affective impact, and the sense of authenticity felt in McDormand’s performance should be understood within a colonialist standard of authenticity rooted in the indigenisation of whiteness – and the erasure of Indigenoussovereignty.”

“Man’s folly hath enhanced the value of gold and silver because of their scarcity; whereas nature, like a kind parent, hath freely given us the best things, such as air, earth, and water, but hath hidden from us those which are vain and useless.” Thomas More, “Utopia” book II – 1516

Quando quem lhe devia oferecer proteção, na verdade, é um abusador

Vivaldi translation of title: When someone who should offer you protection is actually an abuser

Pensamentos.me/VEM comigo!

A sociedade sempre nos fez acreditar na ideia do homem protetor. Desde as histórias infantis, nós mulheres somos bombardeadas com informações que nos parecem verdadeiras. Quem não lembra da clássica cena da princesa no alto de uma torre? A mulher como sempre, é colocada como um ser frágil, como alguém que precisa de proteção do seu ” salvador” . Quem é esse homem? É o cavalheiro que surge em seu mundo, para lhe tirar do ” inacessível ” e lhe oferecer um mundo de oportunidades. ” ERA UMA VEZ…”

As histórias infantis são muito lindas e ao mesmo tempo, encantadoras. Mas a verdade, é que tudo isso, acaba representando uma grande armadilha mental para a mulher, porque não a ensina viver no mundo real, onde ela tem que aprender a se defender dos perigos. Nós mulheres, poderíamos ser poupadas de tantas histórias cor- de-rosa, e educadas mais para o mundo…
