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.

Maybe you saw a picture of his daughter.

From the non-wisdom of crowds article in Toronto Life

    What’s the most useful thing you learned at the expo?

    “Don’t take advice from non-doers and keep only positive people around you. I’m going to look into getting a spiritual mediator.”

Did you see my pm?

That's a lot of stress, refugee, for a family to go through. Drive carefully. I loved your poem that mysteriously arrived on my phone! thx.

There are many lenses one can see Exodus through. -- I'm not sure that the mass killing of the Egyptians or the removing of the existing populations of Canaan (a process continuing to this day) completely shutters the story Gorski is choosing to highlight:

    The Exodus story has six acts: first, a life of slavery and oppression, then the revolt against tyranny, then the difficult flight through the howling wilderness, then the infighting and misbehavior amid the stresses of that ordeal, then the handing down of a new covenant, a new law, and then finally the arrival into a new promised land and the project of building a new Jerusalem.

The difficulty and challenge is looking through both lenses at the same time, hoping that we are moving towards a story that can have liberation without genocide. Given the history of humans so far, it's a hard story to write.

You have proportional representation. It's different in Canada. People are sick of not having their votes count.

Cell phone writing will keep this shorter than thoughtful. Shared values create the possibility of respectful friendship even though you are also the landlord. Respect might lead to more openness and fewer assumptions.

Think carefully about your lease agreement.

More later via pm.

Go for shared values. Advertise by saying what your values are. Screen, and then screen some more.

I share my house with four young women ages 25-30 -- oh bootzie - I could go on.

Also seriously check references.

    I'm afraid of doing any shoutouts for fear of forgetting people and making anyone feel left out.
Just stop that right now. Most of us have never met any of us. We have this strange existence in other people's imagination which is both flattering and frightening. -- I mean WHO on hubski imagined our Russian buddy ThatFanficGuy having a giant moustache?

My point is this: You don't "make" anyone feel left out if you somehow leave them out of a group cyber-huggy shout-out. If they want to feel hurt and left out, they can ask themselves, hubski-style, what can be learned from their feelings of hurt.

Thanks for your insight. Do you prefer this system of democratic voting? Are there any negative sides to it? Is forming coalitions usually a good thing?

The picture is small, but the woodcuts are almost 3" in diameter.
