Patriarchy ends with YOU

In my last article I asked the question of what you do about our House on Fire. The question was just as much directed at myself. Here is another step towards the answer. Where do you find answers to such fundamental questions but within yourself? So I contemplated, I felt, I went inwards, I observed, […]

Our house is on fire

*CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE* Greta Thunberg said it so appropriately: She wants us to panic and act as if our house was on fire. She refers to climate crisis.  Climate crisis is but the symptom of our societal issues. It’s a massive one, no doubt, and we desperately need to act if we want a future […]

Would you allow someone else to live in your body? I mean literally live in your body: “Here, this is my body, you can live in it if you like. Please live in it. I’ll withdraw to the back corner while you have fun shovelling the food you like into my body. Do with my […]

Craving what is already there

The game

I’m noticing how a game rules our everyday life. A game that I have grown so used to, which I have learnt to play so skilfully, to survive. It is a game that is very much entwined in my system – I sometimes struggle to identify it as such. It is not a bad game […]
