Hi ..........

piwilsondotawayatthemoment and feel that I am away from things. Life here is good - rolling through a life removed from Newspapers, TV, outside humans but meeting lots of beautiful humans from all over Europe.

Ann Morrisy was our speaker today. Great deep stuff. She is a Sociologist with Christian perspectives. She took me outside the box in terms of thinking differently and that is good for me and good for the conference.

Hegimonic stuff.
About structural advantage. How it is easy for us to follow the social norm and not rethink for ourselves. She said that, in the Adam and Eve story, Eve's sin was not the Snakes fault but allowing the Snake to tell her what to think. And the men did not get a good report either!

It reminds me of Transactional Analysis which I use in Training - and the 'Red Pill/Blue Pill' exercise which is a great method of getting the thought process going.
She will be speaking again tomorrow.

The last two days we will have Ulrika Stigberg from Stockholm Sweden. She is one of the leaders of a project there called 'The Cold Store' - a project I have heard of for a number of years. It has about 300 staff and is big into music and the arts. She sounds good and could be ideal as a Greenbelt speaker.

One thing worries me::
With all these fine humans working amongst the young humans and seeing a development in self esteem and emotional competence - whose going to be our future pole dancers?
Who will be left to hang around street corners bending low and speaking to drivers in cars?
Who is going to buy and sell those chemicals and feed the established industry?
All these things are going to add to the breakdown of society as we know it.

Dance like no-one is watching
Sing like no-one is listening
Love like you have never been hurt.
