Sometimes I talk:

Me and humanodon in Boston!

Me and insomniasexx in LA!

mk, theadvancedapes, ecib, thenewgreen, me, insomniasexx, b_b in Detroit!

me, someguyfromcanada, coffeesp00ns, in Toronto.

Robert, mkaram, me and flagamuffin on my front porch

blackbootz, me, mivasairski, Jess, _refugee_ in Baltimore

And since you asked, I came across Hubski while searching for the Higgs-Boson.

lil  ·  3 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hi Hubski! What are some of your private rituals?

    I attend a weekly service where religious rites are performed. Some weeks I am going through the motions. Some weeks I am really focused and it's a powerful time of reflection and re-dedication.
and some weeks, I am just texting lil. :-)

- a word that sounds naughty, but isn't.

Hi tng, this is great. I have to listen again to get the words or please post the words and I will read along.

It's so great that you keep playing hockey, no matter what else happens. I don't know about steve but I would definitely benefit from some creative time and creative collaborations. Editing and publishing someone else's book is not the same as writing my own.

I'm across the Lake from Michigan, sitting in a gazebo surrounded by 8 foot high rhubarb. Tomorrow, we will be driving across the CAN-USA border at Sarnia and heading north. There's no time to stop in Ann Arbor on our way up, maybe on the way down.

There's much more to say and do. I will send messages via the psychic paging system for now.

Hi Craig123, As you can see below, there are a lot of answers!! I haven't checked this in the last 78 days. When I tried to send $100 to hubski, the donate button was broken. Now busyness has happened. Please tell us more.

Every post on this is fascinating -- but I don't have a chance to comment. I'm packing for a motor trip to Baltimore. Who knows, I might run across blackbootz but I think he's in Europe. I'm not thrilled about having to leave home for this trip, but I'm going because: loyalty (or something). Meanwhile, at least it's 29 degrees there. It's 10-15 degrees colder here and enough already. It's June.

Condolences to you for the loss of your granny. Feel free to do some initial existential life/death journalling here on hubski and please give me a shout out if you do @-@. The loss of close family members is difficult.

Happy to see people revisiting old posts!!

For god's sake, 21 shares, 41 responses, and a few badges.

Hell yeah, This is what hubski's like.

I'll post a new writing prompt ... one must be lurking.

    About six months later I made an account, 2000 days ago.
Thanks for the hubday post. I appreciate it.

    We live in a universe of infinite awe and wonder, all of it accessible if you only take a look around you. Push back against the dark. Somewhere out there something amazing is waiting to be discovered.
Yes, true.

    One of my pet ideas on why so many kids are depressed is that there are no grand challenges and hardships to plough through anymore.
Hard to say. Life itself seems like such a grand challenge and hardship. The depression comes when the "kids" realize that having an education doesn't necessarily get you what you want and having a relationship doesn't alleviate the problem of also having to have a life.

Thanks so much for writing these thoughts. We live in a universe of infinite awe and wonder.

What do you think it is? Do you have some ideas?

It sounds serious and it doesn't sound like it's caused by anxiety.

Your note reminds me a little of what Richard Feynman, Noble-winning physicist, said about art:

    I wanted very much to learn to draw, for a reason that I kept to myself: I wanted to convey an emotion I have about the beauty of the world. It’s difficult to describe because it’s an emotion. It’s analogous to the feeling one has in religion that has to do with a god that controls everything in the universe: there’s a generality aspect that you feel when you think about how things that appear so different and behave so differently are all run ‘behind the scenes’ by the same organization, the same physical laws. It’s an appreciation of the mathematical beauty of nature, of how she works inside; a realization that the phenomena we see result from the complexity of the inner workings between atoms; a feeling of how dramatic and wonderful it is. It’s a feeling of awe — of scientific awe — which I felt could be communicated through a drawing to someone who had also had that emotion. I could remind him, for a moment, of this feeling about the glories of the universe.

There's something inspiring and charmingly readable about subheadings.

What's it like to arrested by the IDF in the Hebron Hills? Here's an interview with my now released bf about his arrest.

kleinbl00 Did you have a chance to listen to some of it ? I noticed you liked it on my fb. Thanks for that! I rarely post anything, but this seemed informative.

lil  ·  167 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Was my boyfriend arrested in Palestine? Haven't heard from him in 7 hours.

Thanks Steve.

When he was demonstrating against pipelines in British Columbia, I wasn't so worried. He might have got arrested, but by Canadians who are mostly civilized. But the Israeli Defense Force is known for doing whatever they like (at least to Palestinians) and not always being held responsible. As it was, his arm got pulled and twisted pretty bad, but he's okay. From the videos on the links, I can see the IDF being pretty forceful.

Anyway, I knew what I signed up for.
