Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #art, #coaching, #googleplus, #literature, #poetry, #quotes and oodles of other stuff. I signed up over here because, as you all know, Google+ is shutting down.I'm basically dilly-dallying on the internets (whimsical, eclectic and at times NSFW). I do have another account at #diaspora but couldn't use the credentials over here. Guess I have to figure out how it works exactly, with pods and the Federation.

Wisdom From Remo Williams (via Steven Barnes)

“Fear is nothing more than a feeling.” Chuin says, in a rare moment of sympathy. “You feel hot. You feel hungry. You feel angry. You feel afraid. Fear can never kill you.”

It is a feeling. Like other feelings. But unlike the others, we judge ourselves horribly, call ourselves cowards, or think that fear means we can’t, or shouldn’t, or mustn’t. No.

It is just fear.

#Privacy? I don't have anything to hide.

> Over the last 16 months, as I've debated this issue around the world, every single time somebody has said to me, "I don't really worry about invasions of privacy because I don't have anything to hide." I always say the same thing to them. I get out a pen, I write down my email address. I say, "Here's my email address. What I want you to do when you get home is email me the passwords to all of your email accounts, not just the nice, respectable work one in your name, but all of them, because I want to be able to just troll through what it is you're doing online, read what I want to read and publish whatever I find interesting. After all, if you're not a bad person, if you're doing nothing wrong, you should have nothing to hide." Not a single person has taken me up on that offer.

Sometimes you just need to talk to a four year old and an 84 year old to understand life again.
