The only condition.

July 22, 2014 § Leave a comment

Contempt and hatred, when directed towards other beings, are unacceptable. This is the only single thing I am willing to request from anybody who would like to join FreeLab, that — by default — one respects and likes other sentient (and non-sentient, if we are at that) creatures.
It does not mean blind acceptance of everyone. It doesn’t mean indifference in the face of evil. It doesn’t mean passivity in the face of wrongdoers.
It means that one values every other person as an unique, precious and equal gem of life. And takes it into account in every decision, every action.

Such is my hope. Such is my request to myself and to all my friends. Let’s try.

WAR ON WAR!

July 20, 2014 § 1 Comment

For years I’ve been learning about Israelis/Palestinians fighting each other. About mutual atrocities. About pain, grief and revenge thirst.
I had no words, no ideas, no sensible opinion to present. I only knew that I do not want to join ANY side of this insane pit fight.
Now, after recent developments in Gaza; after watching the disaster in Ukraine; after some more readings and discussions; after finding out that there are people like Gideon Levy or Gaza Youth Breaks Out (GYBO) – I got to the firm opinion about that all bloody mess. And I think it applies not just to the Israeli/Palestinian clash. The very same I can say about the “civil” war in Ukraine; about Afghanistan; about Latin America suffering from US-driven “war on drugs”; about Egypt, Libya, Western Sahara…

To St. George’s Hill,
A ragged band they called the Diggers
Came to show the people’s will
They defied the landlords
They defied the laws
They were the dispossessed reclaiming what was theirs

Three little girls, chanting, marching along.

July 2, 2014 § Leave a comment

There is still some mess in the trailer. Until I get some minimal furniture – boxes and maybe some hanging storage – it is still basically an empty shell, with a desk-ish board along one wall and the bed platform, doubling as the store-all surface.
Sitting at the laptop – held together thanks to the duct tape, very hacky – I heard tiny voices singing something in Norwegian. And then, under my window, I saw three little girls, happy and joyful. They marched by, holding their hands and chanting some nursery rhymes, apparently.
And then I fully realised – I am here, in Svartlamon, for next several weeks, having my “own” place to stay, growing numbers of friends and the whole lot of good things to do.
I started singing under my breath.
