A times I believe that all people and governments would be better off if they studied Exodus 7-11 more closely and stopped trying to fight the Coronavirus, accepted that the planet is over populated and that herd immunity is the way to go.
Of course this is a radical position and I do not always strongly adhere to it myself. Let alone want to force it on anyone else. I have lots of doubts about these occasional beliefs of mine.
There is a name for having some beliefs which are subject to change.
It is called intellectual freedom.
It means not wanting to force almost any human belief of mine onto other people and not wanting other people in this unknown territory of the Coronavirus Era forcing most of their beliefs on me.
What should we do next?
Does anyone really know?
In this state of uncertainty, why are we letting so many freedoms die?
Bluegrass musician Del McCoury turns 82 years old today and is still working.
His career in music goes back to 1958.
His two sons Ronnie and Rob have been in his band for 27 years.
The above word art is a visual transcreation of Tim Goldich‘s words: “Many a feminist rejects marriage, home, family, and parenting. But, how beautiful all of those things can be. Del McCoury’s connection with his sons shows that there’s nothing more wonderful than family.”
I feel a great affinity for the capacity of Indonesian poet Maman Majid Binfas to bring together different ideas and make them work.
In Indonesian language the concept of Kemerdekaan as freedom in the political context and Kebebasan as freedom in the personal context are two very different ideas. In his poem “Kebebasan” Maman unifies the two different ideas.
The above art work is a transcreation of the first lines of the poem where he uses God as the link.
