What's new since August 2023?

Here's my half-year photo-reportage : becha.unciv.nl/q4-2023-q1-2024

Illustrated by Yin-Yang: quite some celebrations, with a bit of grief embedded in them... and quite some mourning, with a core of hope...

Here’s my house-squirrel: a Puh = <i>Glis Glis</i> = Edible Doormouse

And a further non Finnish interlude: earlier this year I was part of a Dutch documentary about railways called Europa spoort niet

Now there’s a version fully translated into English (or: me without subtitles!) 🙂

It deals with #CrossBorderRail topics of course

Marcia Luyten: De naaktslak rukt niet zomaar op.
Als de bodem krioelt van het leven, worden de meeste slakkeneitjes opgegeten. Duizendpoten, aaltjes en kevers zijn er dol op. En met dat bodemleven is het dramatisch gesteld.
Als gevolg van te veel stikstof (door te veel mest), te veel bestrijdingsmiddelen en te veel klimaatverandering, zitten in de Nederlandse aarde steeds minder schimmels en bacteriën, bodeminsecten en wormen. Plus zeer nat weer => slakkenplaag.

Me: Shit is getting real all over the world with this climate thing, record heat, record floods, record hail. People don't understand. It's going to hit everywhere and it's going to hit them. And it's only May.

Also Me: watches hail fall as second power outage of the day hits.

The narratives the women in my family carry are just as damaging as those carried by the men -- and these aren't gender-specific but they come from patriarchy:

Suffering is to be done in silence.
Emotional vulnerability is weakness.
Self sacrifice for the family.
Respect the hierarchy.

I see these narratives sneak out in conversations with my sister, my dad, about our family history.

Deconstructing or unpacking these veils of untruth can only benefit everyone.

Naw tho, I've done that reading:

“If a white man wants to lynch me, that's his problem. If he's got the power to lynch me, that's my problem. Racism is not a question of attitude; it's a question of power. Racism gets its power from capitalism. Thus, if you're anti-racist, whether you know it or not, you must be anti-capitalist. The power for racism, the power for sexism, comes from capitalism, not an attitude.”

Me, with a kinked neck, after sleeping the whole night on 2 trains & 2 busses (also the sculpture is called “vesna “!!)

For the past few years, I’ve been running #WeDistribute, a tech blog / news publication dedicated to open source, decentralized social communication systems. It’s evolved from a tiny personal blog to something that kind of resembles a news outlet.

This is a musing on my journey, and my hopes on where I can take this thing.
