Revolution: The winds of change?

Is asking for change a good thing? Is it wise? Is there a chance for success? Change is radical. Radicality is politicized. Radicality is changing. Radicality is psychology. But revolution is psychological. Revolution is the public debate. A public sphere. What is necessary is to place over words, words over actions, violence and peace clashing…

Pink : Color me Art

We continue with the color pink. Not because we like the color but because of its significance this month. First, art. More often than not, we consider certain colors as defining specific hidden messages. However, what if art was just that? Art? What if it was just what it’s supposed to convey: a conversation? Art…

The Flower’s Design on Us

Liberty London, famous for its fabrics and flowers. We love both. We are obsessed with both. But flower displays are a message unto themselves. They symbolize beauty, simplicity and a marketing package all together. Flowers are a lure. JK Rowling criticized it in a way in her books: Petunia Dursley was all about keeping a…

A Year of Brexit: Island of Woes and Mixed Emotions

It is an isle, or an island, depending on who is speaking. It is in Europe and that is a fact. Yet some there think they are not European because Europe is a continent. It is that minority belief, which snowballed into a referendum, which, in turn, put the island on a cliffhanger of instability…

The Weird and Wonderous “Seaweed”

The sea sometimes lives above water. As we live in a world where climate change IS real, what does it take for us to realize that maybe the Earth also listens to karma: what comes around goes around. The sea takes back what’s hers. Talk about #ClimateChange for example. Weird things going on, right? These…

Flowers: Just Beauty or something else?

We are going to try something new: photos. Each month, we’ll come up with a theme for them. Our goal: no long text. No huge politics or analysis (we know that’s getting a little hard to discuss because it’s overwhelming). Just one photo, one hashtag, and one message from us. And your thoughts. Let’s start…

FIFA: Power, Politics, and, Sports. What We Know.

Football has been politics of another kind. Not unlike diplomacy or state visits. However, it is very different. The World Cup is both a game of power and a super-star show of surprise. This year, surprise is a power element: all favorites have probably been eliminated and the powerful states are all but one not…

A Penchant for Abuse

The big man with the guns now has the power. Enough is enough.  A friend of mine recently expressed his complete shock when the US declared it was getting out of the UN Human Rights Council. I then asked him what he thought of the current administration but he didn’t answer, choosing either to ignore…

War and peace (no, not the book)

The funny thing is that a Greek and an Italian can easily become very imbued with himself. This is especially true when they are asked about their History. Or more specifically, when they are asked to comment on the architectural vestiges of ancient civilizations. But the first thing to know about history? No, it is…

Be a voice – Treatise on our broken society

Why quote literary works? Make your own. Creativity is a dream but it is also the genius of humanity. What point is there in copying another man’s work to inspire yourself when you can create imagine your own? They may turn in their graves far beneath the hard ground’s surface. You might say but the…
