I would rather signal boost voices from communities of colour and provide those perspectives to people who were denied those perspectives when they grew up.
I don’t really consider myself an activist, I’m a middle-aged headbanger in a band.” What instilled these morals and principles in you?
I have this strong intuition that the elephant in the room is civilization itself, and that leaves us in a really hard spot.
If that is the case, we need some sort of collapse to get to something that isn’t so inherently problematic.
In general I would say that we’re headed for a societal collapse, and I’m not even sure that’s a bad thing in the long term.I found that I actually calmed down quite a bit once I was seated. The only leg of the trip that was a little uncomfortable for me was the one I didn't meet the capt. The morning of the flight my aniexty level was very low. I got meds from the doctor and i still couldn't board the plane. If I see the Pilot before boarding the plane (like when he & the co-pilot walk thru the boarding area) is it okay to approach him then or just wait until I board the plane? We'll be coming back here for the weekend and then moving on Monday. The move alone is overwhelming, but I wasn't expecting to feel this sad about leaving my office. And as I said, it was harder to say goodbye to some people than I was expecting.I am so freaking terrified and i just can't see myself ever flying again. Powerful - and overpowering - emotions are triggered by unconscious processes. I knew I would feel sad, since it has been 18 years and I am very attached, but I feel worse than i thought I would. Kim, I shouldn't really lose it for long (but who ever knows).
You can't control them consciously no matter how hard you try. I'm supposed to have service as soon as we move in, but I don't know yet whether that will be on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.
