I was on the Mall in D.C. for one of the regular &quot;festival&quot;-type gatherings of the throngs—I forget what it was, maybe the Fourth of July—it was hot—and I came across an open hydrant which had created a sea of mud in front of it. In the sea of mud, a large, muscular black guy was taking on all comers in mud-wrestling contests. He won a number of challenges, until a shorter, dumpy-looking white kid with a strangely confident smile stepped up. The white kid beat the big black guy. It quickly became obvious to me why: the big guy was not a trained wrestler, and the shorter guy was; I&#39;d bet dollars to doughnuts the white kid had been on a college wrestling team and had put in thousands of hours of focused practice. But the bigger guy, without animosity, seemed genuinely curious as to why he was getting beaten. So each time he lost, he insisted on another contest—and he would lose again. There was no hostility in it. There was quite a large crowd watching, the whole time. After about four goes, the new champion begged off, washed all the mud off himself in the spray from the hydrant, and wandered away in the company of his girlfriend, and the black guy asked for new challengers. The crowd began to disperse.</p>\r\n<p>As I watched all this, I took a roll and a half of pictures—maybe 50 frames or so. That was a lot, at that time. I probably took those 50 frames over 15 or 20 minutes. I didn&#39;t photograph quickly—I was taking care, picking my spots, doing the best I could. I figured I had it covered.</p>\r\n<p>But when I got to the darkroom—what a headache! I made at least 15 workprints (my method at that time was to make quick 8x10 workprints on RC paper to edit from—my rule was that I had to make at least one workprint from every roll of film—that was to overcome laziness—and I couldn&#39;t make any more than six—that was to enforce selectivity at the stage of viewing the contacts with the illuminated loupe, which was the first pass in the editing process.</p>\r\n<p>But rules are made to be broken, and I wasn&#39;t sold on any of the first six workprints I made of the wrestlers, so I made more. There just wasn&#39;t one standout shot that rose head and shoulders above all the others; a number of them were competent.</p>\r\n<p>Now, I suspect that the best way to tell the story might have been to pick three or four that worked synergistically and mat them together, in a row. I didn&#39;t consider that at the time. (I&#39;d been trained to be an exhibiting art photographer, but I wasn&#39;t one. I never did become one—the difference is that, then, I thought I would someday.)</p>\r\n<p>I finally did manage to choose one, and I made a fine (i.e., final) print of the selection. (On Ilford Galerie, if any of you remember that!)</p>\r\n<p>The lesson I took from the experience was maybe a little contrary: I decided I shouldn&#39;t shoot so much. I loved it when Jane Bown, the great English portraitist (I think she actually is English—born in Herefordshire and brought up in Dorset?), said that she noticed the first few and last few pictures she took during a sitting were the best, so she stopped taking all the ones in the middle! Heh. I&#39;m always trying to take fewer shots, because the fewer shots I take, the more I try to get it right before I push the shutter button.</p>\r\n<p>And the easier the editing is.</p>\r\n<p>There are always editing headaches, though. Especially with landscapes—for me, landscapes are particularly difficult to edit. The differences are subtle and the effects you think you notice aren&#39;t always perceptible to others.</p>\r\n<p>In this case, I think the second picture is stronger. It puts the main subject—the still surface of the pond reflecting the sky—a little more centrally, it prevents the black clump of trees in the upper left from drawing too much attention from the eye while still letting it balance the bit of fence at the opposite corner. And it shows more of the fence.</p>\r\n<p>Took me a while to get there, though. They&#39;re so close to the same. Should have only taken one!</p>\r\n<p>I should really go see if I can find that old shot of the wrestlers to show you. Surely it&#39;s around here someplace....</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><em>Mike</em></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 10px;\">Original contents copyright 2018 by Michael C.

         "content": "<p>Here&#39;s a guest post from the always-interesting Osho Robbins. Plus, a video Robbins made to accompany what follows. It has a &quot;69&quot; joke, so that alone leads me to recommend it.</p>\r\n<p>Robbins has an intriguing take on the Sant Mat version of spirituality. Since I wrote a book called <a href=\"https://www.amazon.com/Return-One-Plotinuss-Guide-God-Realization/dp/0977735214/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1542517316&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=brian+hines\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\">Return to the One</a>, I&#39;m sympathetic to the notion of oneness.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>However, I&#39;m also sympathetic to the notion of non-oneness, since as Robbins observes, if everything was really One, there wouldn&#39;t be anybody who could stand outside of the oneness and say, &quot;This One is absolutely wonderful!&quot; (or we might say, onederful)</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://hinessight.blogs.com/.a/6a00d83451c0aa69e2022ad37af154200c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Sach Khand\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451c0aa69e2022ad37af154200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://hinessight.blogs.com/.a/6a00d83451c0aa69e2022ad37af154200c-500wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Sach Khand\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Anyway, here&#39;s Robbins&#39; thoughts on the absurdity of believing in Sach Khand.

Our 100-percent nut-free chocolates take full advantage of Maine’s bounty to source ingredients for our hand-made, hand-dipped truffles, caramels, and seasonal confections: We use regionally harvested maple syrup tapped in Madison, sea salt from coastal Marshfield, cream from Westbrook’s Smiling Hill Farm, and butter from Kate’s Homemade in Old Orchard Beach. We use Maine blueberries, of course, and the spirits in several of our truffles come from Cold River Vodka, an award-winning distillery in Freeport.

Dean was an architect, and I was working as a textbook editor and fitness instructor. Dean began making truffles in our home and what started in our kitchen, spread to our dining room, living room, and finally guest bedroom. When the 2008 recession hit and everything changed for a lot of people (including us), we decided to take the plunge, leave our home kitchen and double-down on the chocolate life in a tiny 700-square-foot production space in downtown Portland. The hope and dream was, if we could make our chocolate business work during the depths of the financial crisis, we could make it anytime. Our reasoning and our wager were that our business would grow as the economy grew.

With his bold example he won my heart.<br /><br /><strong>Today&#39;s Expression: voir un film en VO</strong></p>\r\n<p>&#0160; &#0160; : to see a movie in its original language<br /><br />Jean-Marc and I have not been on a date in a <em>very</em> long time or, as they say here, <em>depuis un bail</em>. Instead of <a href=\"https://www.french-word-a-day.com/2006/06/bouder.html\">whining about it</a>, <em>I asked him out....<br /><br /></em>Let&#39;s go on a hike! I growled.</p>\r\n<p>The hike got postponed but our date didn&#39;t... after my old man suggested a movie. <em>The story of Freddie Mercury is playing en VO</em>, at the <em>cinéma</em>, he said. I wasn&#39;t gripped by the suggestion, but, <em>harrumph</em>, it was that or the <em>statu quo</em> (does that mean same ol&#39; same ol&#39;? Well same ol&#39; was getting old!)<br /><br />Did you know our seaside town, La Ciotat, is the birthplace of cinéma? Here is where the Lumière Brothers set up camp--eventually building a palace for themselves and their cohorts. It is still there today and, for 250 k euros you can buy an apartment within the rundown relic--something that might&#39;ve appealed to Freddie Mercury who, I learned last night, had a whimsical taste and who might have enjoyed the <em>historic movie theater inside the building</em>.<br /><br />Long digression over, let me continue about last night&#39;s date. My old man and I entered the Cinéma Lumière movie theater and, after ordering popcorn (they are now offering salted! Incredible, I only ever noticed sugared popcorn at French movie theaters) made our way upstairs to <em>salle deux</em>.<br /><br />The little room was empty but for 10 rows of retro movie seats. Other moviegoers arrived only to decamp from seat to seat (the <em>fauteuils</em> are ancient <em>and lumpy</em>). I sunk right into mine and when the lights went out <em>we were enraptured for the next 2 hours</em>. <br /><br />So obviously moved was each an every spectator in the room, that nobody moved when the credits came on at the end.&#0160;<br /><br /><em>He had us at</em> <em>incisors</em>. He being the inimitable Freddie Mercury (played by the amazing Rami Malek). <em>I was born with four additional incisors</em>, Freddie was explaining in the opening to <em>Bohemian Rhapsody</em>, after two dejected bandmembers (they had just lost their lead singer) made fun of his overbite.&#0160;<em>More space in my mouth means more range, </em>he added, with flourish&#0160;(his operatic voice singing to our own artistic genius buried somewhere deep inside). That is when the French, watching the entire film in VO, laughed out loud and were visibly (or audibly?) smitten by the hero.<br /><br />Smitten, to say the least! I could not get home fast enough to cram (determined to make up for lost time and watch and read anything I could find about Freddie Mercury on the internet). I am currently engrossed in the Daily Mirror article&#0160;<em><a href=\"https://www.mirror.co.uk/film/freddie-mercury-teeth-bohemian-rhapsody-13505449\">Why Freddie Mercury Never Got His Teeth Fixed</a>. The answer sums up all that I have not put into words about why he is the perfect mentor for a writer like me--or for anyone struggling to express themselves: He chose art over artifice.<br /><br />This will mean something different to each of us.&#0160;</em>Perhaps the&#0160;key word here is<em> meaning: Freddie&#39;s gift wasn&#39;t to define it--but to get us to feel it. He did that with his additional incisors, his glorious voice--its operatic highs and lows reminding us of the path we are all walking. Freddie Mercury was never above us, he was equally one of us. A misfit-come-megastar, he never lost his heart. And he gave his best until the bitter end.<br /><br />Carry on, carry on. (</em>I leave you with a couple of lyrics I was humming on my morning walk. I&#39;m new to Queen, so I&#39;ve got lots of catching up to do when it comes to memorizing songs, but a couple of words from Bohemian Rhapsody come back to me, and are all the advice a struggling writer or a struggling human needs to know: Carry on, carry on.)<br /><br /><em>Amicalement</em>,</p>\r\n<p>Kristi</p>\r\n<p>P.S.

With his bold example he won my heart.<br /><br /><strong>Today&#39;s Expression: voir un film en VO</strong></p>\r\n<p>&#0160; &#0160; : to see a movie in its original language<br /><br />Jean-Marc and I have not been on a date in a <em>very</em> long time or, as they say here, <em>depuis un bail</em>. Instead of <a href=\"https://www.french-word-a-day.com/2006/06/bouder.html\">whining about it</a>, <em>I asked him out....<br /><br /></em>Let&#39;s go on a hike! I growled.</p>\r\n<p>The hike got postponed but our date didn&#39;t... after my old man suggested a movie. <em>The story of Freddie Mercury is playing en VO</em>, at the <em>cinéma</em>, he said. I wasn&#39;t gripped by the suggestion, but, <em>harrumph</em>, it was that or the <em>statu quo</em> (does that mean same ol&#39; same ol&#39;? Well same ol&#39; was getting old!)<br /><br />Did you know our seaside town, La Ciotat, is the birthplace of cinéma? Here is where the Lumière Brothers set up camp--eventually building a palace for themselves and their cohorts. It is still there today and, for 250 k euros you can buy an apartment within the rundown relic--something that might&#39;ve appealed to Freddie Mercury who, I learned last night, had a whimsical taste and who might have enjoyed the <em>historic movie theater inside the building</em>.<br /><br />Long digression over, let me continue about last night&#39;s date. My old man and I entered the Cinéma Lumière movie theater and, after ordering popcorn (they are now offering salted! Incredible, I only ever noticed sugared popcorn at French movie theaters) made our way upstairs to <em>salle deux</em>.<br /><br />The little room was empty but for 10 rows of retro movie seats. Other moviegoers arrived only to decamp from seat to seat (the <em>fauteuils</em> are ancient <em>and lumpy</em>). I sunk right into mine and when the lights went out <em>we were enraptured for the next 2 hours</em>. <br /><br />So obviously moved was each an every spectator in the room, that nobody moved when the credits came on at the end.&#0160;<br /><br /><em>He had us at</em> <em>incisors</em>. He being the inimitable Freddie Mercury (played by the amazing Rami Malek). <em>I was born with four additional incisors</em>, Freddie was explaining in the opening to <em>Bohemian Rhapsody</em>, after two dejected bandmembers (they had just lost their lead singer) made fun of his overbite.&#0160;<em>More space in my mouth means more range, </em>he added, with flourish&#0160;(his operatic voice singing to our own artistic genius buried somewhere deep inside). That is when the French, watching the entire film in VO, laughed out loud and were visibly (or audibly?) smitten by the hero.<br /><br />Smitten, to say the least! I could not get home fast enough to cram (determined to make up for lost time and watch and read anything I could find about Freddie Mercury on the internet). I am currently engrossed in the Daily Mirror article&#0160;<em><a href=\"https://www.mirror.co.uk/film/freddie-mercury-teeth-bohemian-rhapsody-13505449\">Why Freddie Mercury Never Got His Teeth Fixed</a>. The answer sums up all that I have not put into words about why he is the perfect mentor for a writer like me--or for anyone struggling to express themselves: He chose art over artifice.<br /><br />This will mean something different to each of us.&#0160;</em>Perhaps the&#0160;key word here is<em> meaning: Freddie&#39;s gift wasn&#39;t to define it--but to get us to feel it. He did that with his additional incisors, his glorious voice--its operatic highs and lows reminding us of the path we are all walking. Freddie Mercury was never above us, he was equally one of us. A misfit-come-megastar, he never lost his heart. And he gave his best until the bitter end.<br /><br />Carry on, carry on. (</em>I leave you with a couple of lyrics I was humming on my morning walk. I&#39;m new to Queen, so I&#39;ve got lots of catching up to do when it comes to memorizing songs, but a couple of words from Bohemian Rhapsody come back to me, and are all the advice a struggling writer or a struggling human needs to know: Carry on, carry on.)<br /><br /><em>Amicalement</em>,</p>\r\n<p>Kristi</p>\r\n<p>P.S.

It can be a concrete jumble of buildings, but if people are talking to each other, smiling, doing a little of this and that to make someone feel cared for or at home, it’s pretty special.

She is a fabulous cook and when I visit her for a chat,&#0160; her kitchen always smells of freshly cooked homemade meals. I asked her to teach me how to cook a simple dish so I could do it at home. I live in a mulit-cultural part of Los Angeles with lots of specialized markets. My cooking class with her brought me into her kitchen and into her culture. Our dogs played, we had a few laughs and I learned how to make a dish with beans, vegetables, chicken, rice and exotic spices.&#0160; Her charming accent and command of the kitchen right across the street from my house opened doors to another country. I will get the name of the dish but my trip to her kitchen was a slow reminder of the art of the neibhbor. </span><br /></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; font-family: book antiqua,palatino;\"><span style=\"line-height: 13px;\">&#0160;Learning How To Cook From My Persian Neighbor<br /></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: small;\"><span style=\"font-size: 13px; line-height: 13px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\"><iframe frameborder=\"0\" height=\"390\" src=\"http://www.youtube.com/embed/6b87ipzb9T8\" title=\"YouTube video player\" width=\"480\"></iframe>&#0160;<br /></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\">&#0160;</span></span></span></span> </span></span></span></span></span></span></span><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\">&#0160;</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-family: Palatino; font-size: 12px;\">When I moved into my house I was delighted by an old style welcome and the kindness of strangers. &#0160;I was doing &#0160;work on the place and found it quickly. I relocated from Northern California and I was a bit of a novelty, not a conventional family woman. Within the first week, I received cookies, pastries, cards and well wishes from several folks in the hood. And this is Los Angeles! &#0160;One thing I do know after living in old bungalow and courtyard cottages, my neighbors usually become a big part of my life. Front porches and courtyards enable a little interaction. Tending a garden, offering help or simply enduring a little chit chat can evolve into something amazing. After many years of moving around, I realize some of my dearest friends were neighbors. People I met at a garage sale in front of my house or on a hiking trail with our mutual dogs, a shared yard as a renter or a mutual mailbox in a condo were all opportunities to expand my world.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: large;\"><span style=\"line-height: 20px;

Letting them dart back in the house in their PJs and pretending you don&#39;t see them is another way of being considerate. Picking up mail, papers, or letting them know when something loud and offensive is about to take place at your house is almost saintly. As much as we fear for our privacy and not getting involved, keeping the community spirit circulating no matter where you live is essential to the slow manifesto.

Keeping to yourself is not a bad idea but can ultimately cut you off from spontaneous friendships, unexpected security and a sense of well -being. Neighborhoods are microcosms of community and history with natural and architectural guideposts that help place us in a context. It can be a concrete jumble of buildings, but if people are talking to each other, smiling, doing a little of this and that to make someone feel cared for or at home, it’s pretty special. It’s the people and how they treat each other that makes a neighborhood.</span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 10pt;\"><strong><a href=\"http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/wayoflife/07/28/mf.mrrogers.neighbor/\">Homage To Mr Rogers</a></strong></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: small;\"><span style=\"font-size: 13px; line-height: 13px;\"> <a href=\"http://www.onslowlife.com/.a/6a0120a6588c0d970b013485c071e4970c-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\"><img alt=\"Bwsweep\" class=\"asset asset-image at-xid-6a0120a6588c0d970b013485c071e4970c selected \" src=\"http://www.onslowlife.com/.a/6a0120a6588c0d970b013485c071e4970c-pi\" style=\"border: 2px solid black; width: 300px;\" title=\"Bwsweep\" /></span></span></span></a><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\"> <br />&#0160;</span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\">&#0160;</p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 10pt; font-family: book antiqua,palatino;\"><span style=\"line-height: 13px;\">Cooking With My International Neighbor</span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; font-family: book antiqua,palatino;\"><span style=\"line-height: 13px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 10pt;\">My neighbor is from Iran.

I will get the name of the dish but my trip to her kitchen was a slow reminder of the art of the neibhbor. </span><br /></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; font-family: book antiqua,palatino;\"><span style=\"line-height: 13px;\">&#0160;Learning How To Cook From My Persian Neighbor<br /></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: small;\"><span style=\"font-size: 13px; line-height: 13px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\"><iframe frameborder=\"0\" height=\"390\" src=\"http://www.youtube.com/embed/6b87ipzb9T8\" title=\"YouTube video player\" width=\"480\"></iframe>&#0160;<br /></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\">&#0160;</span></span></span></span> </span></span></span></span></span></span></span><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\">&#0160;</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-family: Palatino; font-size: 12px;\">When I moved into my house I was delighted by an old style welcome and the kindness of strangers. &#0160;I was doing &#0160;work on the place and found it quickly. I relocated from Northern California and I was a bit of a novelty, not a conventional family woman. Within the first week, I received cookies, pastries, cards and well wishes from several folks in the hood. And this is Los Angeles! &#0160;One thing I do know after living in old bungalow and courtyard cottages, my neighbors usually become a big part of my life. Front porches and courtyards enable a little interaction. Tending a garden, offering help or simply enduring a little chit chat can evolve into something amazing. After many years of moving around, I realize some of my dearest friends were neighbors. People I met at a garage sale in front of my house or on a hiking trail with our mutual dogs, a shared yard as a renter or a mutual mailbox in a condo were all opportunities to expand my world.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: large;\"><span style=\"line-height: 20px;

Letting them dart back in the house in their PJs and pretending you don&#39;t see them is another way of being considerate. Picking up mail, papers, or letting them know when something loud and offensive is about to take place at your house is almost saintly. As much as we fear for our privacy and not getting involved, keeping the community spirit circulating no matter where you live is essential to the slow manifesto.

I wanted it on the back of the image so that none of the ink would be scratched or wiped off of the plastic as I added layers onto the front.</p>\r\n<p>Next, I took out some of the pieces of Stampboard and started laying them out - I had the idea in my head to do a kind of layered, cubist approach (with lots of boho flair, of course!) and so I played around with the arrangement of the tiles until I liked it, then auditioned several different materials for fins and accents. For those, I landed on a few types of shell beads. Once I had everything laid out the way I wanted it, I took a photo so I could match it all back up as I worked on each layer.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a0585200c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-3---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a0585200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a0585200c-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-3---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Once I had a plan for how it would all come together I took the Stampboard and coated the front and sides of each piece with black gesso then laid out the bottom layer on top of the acetate fish and glued the pieces down. (I used Weldbond glue - this works especially well when I&#39;m gluing anything to glass or plastic.) When the glue was mostly dry and the tiles didn&#39;t wiggle, I took some gold embossing paste, lined up my Boho Fish stencil so that it matched the outline of the acetate one on the base, and then used a palette knife to add the texture paste. I carefully removed any overhanging bits of paste and let it dry.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a05ad200c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-4-5---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a05ad200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a05ad200c-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-4-5---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Once my texture paste was dry to the touch, I used some iridescent paints (I used Finnabair and Viva paints here) and added some color to the first layer of stenciled Stampboard blocks.</p>\r\n<p>When the texture paste and paint were both dry, I repeated the process with the next layer of Stampboard, adhering them in place and then lining up the stencil and stenciling with more gold embossing paste. I also tucked some small green vinyl disc beads into place to give the suggestion of scales. Since they&#39;re fairly thin, I cut some of them so they&#39;d follow the contours of my fish.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3bfc856200b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-6-7---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3bfc856200b img-responsive\" src=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3bfc856200b-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-6-7---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>When the texture paste on this layer was dry I used clear embossing ink and a VersaMarker to coat the areas where I wanted color and then used some <a href=\"https://www.gwenlafleur.com/store/p166/embossing-powder-baked-texture-the-altered-page-emerald-creek.html\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Baked Texture Embossing Powder\">Baked Texture embossing powder</a> from Seth Apter and Emerald Creek to add the colors. I added the powder one color at a time and then heated it all at once. You have to be careful with this step as the heat will curl the acetate in the base layer if you don&#39;t watch what you&#39;re doing. If that starts to happen, just press the plastic back into place while it&#39;s still warm and put something flat and heavy on top until it cools again.</p>\r\n<p>I added one more layer of Stampboard and more embossing powder, then I adhered my shell bead accents in place. I put some vintage rhinestones in the bead hole openings, then used a mix of <a href=\"https://www.gwenlafleur.com/store/p166/embossing-powder-baked-texture-the-altered-page-emerald-creek.html\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Baked Texture Embossing Powder\">Rocky Road Baked Texture embossing powder</a> and chunky gold glitter and added it like shading around some of my elements, then carefully heated and melted those sections. I also added a glass Nazar bead as the eye of the fish.

For today&#39;s project, I tried out some new-to-me products including an <a href=\"https://www.dickblick.com/zz149/44/\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Ampersand 8&quot; x 8&quot; Gessoboard Shadowbox\">Ampersand 8&quot; x 8&quot; Gessoboard Shadowbox</a> and a package of <a href=\"https://www.dickblick.com/products/ampersand-stampbord/\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Ampersand Stampboard\">Ampersand Stampboard</a> - I used the 1/2 lb bag in assorted sizes. I combined that with stencils, paint, fabric, beads, embossing powder, and a few other supplies to make this underwater-themed mixed media shadowbox.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad39ff7f8200d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad39ff7f8200d img-responsive\" src=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad39ff7f8200d-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Of course, I also put together a tutorial showing how I made the fish as well as some of the details on the box itself. Ready to get started?</p>\r\n<p>To begin, I took my <a href=\"https://www.gwenlafleur.com/store/p178/stencils-boho-collection.html\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Boho Stencil Collection | Gwen Lafleur\">Boho Fish stencil</a> and stenciled one of the images onto a .20mm thick piece of acetate using black StazOn ink and then traced over the lines with a black Sharpie.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3a02a75200d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-1-2---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3a02a75200d img-responsive\" src=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3a02a75200d-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-1-2---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>I cut the fish out and then flipped it over and used some metallic alcohol inks and Vintaj Patina inks (both from Ranger) and dabbed color onto the back of the acetate with a felt pad. I wanted it on the back of the image so that none of the ink would be scratched or wiped off of the plastic as I added layers onto the front.</p>\r\n<p>Next, I took out some of the pieces of Stampboard and started laying them out - I had the idea in my head to do a kind of layered, cubist approach (with lots of boho flair, of course!) and so I played around with the arrangement of the tiles until I liked it, then auditioned several different materials for fins and accents. For those, I landed on a few types of shell beads. Once I had everything laid out the way I wanted it, I took a photo so I could match it all back up as I worked on each layer.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a0585200c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-3---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a0585200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a0585200c-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-3---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Once I had a plan for how it would all come together I took the Stampboard and coated the front and sides of each piece with black gesso then laid out the bottom layer on top of the acetate fish and glued the pieces down. (I used Weldbond glue - this works especially well when I&#39;m gluing anything to glass or plastic.) When the glue was mostly dry and the tiles didn&#39;t wiggle, I took some gold embossing paste, lined up my Boho Fish stencil so that it matched the outline of the acetate one on the base, and then used a palette knife to add the texture paste. I carefully removed any overhanging bits of paste and let it dry.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a05ad200c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-4-5---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a05ad200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad37a05ad200c-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-4-5---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Once my texture paste was dry to the touch, I used some iridescent paints (I used Finnabair and Viva paints here) and added some color to the first layer of stenciled Stampboard blocks.</p>\r\n<p>When the texture paste and paint were both dry, I repeated the process with the next layer of Stampboard, adhering them in place and then lining up the stencil and stenciling with more gold embossing paste. I also tucked some small green vinyl disc beads into place to give the suggestion of scales. Since they&#39;re fairly thin, I cut some of them so they&#39;d follow the contours of my fish.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3bfc856200b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-6-7---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3bfc856200b img-responsive\" src=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3bfc856200b-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-6-7---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>When the texture paste on this layer was dry I used clear embossing ink and a VersaMarker to coat the areas where I wanted color and then used some <a href=\"https://www.gwenlafleur.com/store/p166/embossing-powder-baked-texture-the-altered-page-emerald-creek.html\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Baked Texture Embossing Powder\">Baked Texture embossing powder</a> from Seth Apter and Emerald Creek to add the colors. I added the powder one color at a time and then heated it all at once. You have to be careful with this step as the heat will curl the acetate in the base layer if you don&#39;t watch what you&#39;re doing. If that starts to happen, just press the plastic back into place while it&#39;s still warm and put something flat and heavy on top until it cools again.</p>\r\n<p>I added one more layer of Stampboard and more embossing powder, then I adhered my shell bead accents in place. I put some vintage rhinestones in the bead hole openings, then used a mix of <a href=\"https://www.gwenlafleur.com/store/p166/embossing-powder-baked-texture-the-altered-page-emerald-creek.html\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Baked Texture Embossing Powder\">Rocky Road Baked Texture embossing powder</a> and chunky gold glitter and added it like shading around some of my elements, then carefully heated and melted those sections. I also added a glass Nazar bead as the eye of the fish. I used a bit of gold wax over the tops of the shells and embossed sections to highlight the raised areas.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3a02b21200d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-8---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3a02b21200d img-responsive\" src=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3a02b21200d-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-8---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>When the fish was done I moved onto the shadowbox.

I used some props to hold the fish in place while the clay cured. To finish it off, I added a piece of white <a href=\"https://www.gwenlafleur.com/store/p121/beaded-kuchi-trim-going-global.html\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Kuchi Beaded Trim | Gwen Lafleur Studios\">Kuchi beaded trim</a> along the inside bottom and glazed that to integrate it.</p>\r\n<p>Finally, I did some more stenciling around the outside of the panel. First I collaged on some pieces of newspaper from India, then I used my <a href=\"https://www.gwenlafleur.com/store/p178/stencils-boho-collection.html\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Boho Stencil Collection | Gwen Lafleur\">Collage Textures &amp; Patterns, Circles stencil</a> as well as one of the splats from <a href=\"https://www.stencilgirlproducts.com/stencil-text-texture-discovery-seth-apter-p/s304.htm\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Text and Texture Discovery Stencil by Seth Apter\">Seth Apter&#39;s Text and Texture Discovery stencil</a> and added a few of the circles along the top and sides with some molding paste and a palette knife.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3a02b94200d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-13-14---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3a02b94200d img-responsive\" src=\"https://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef022ad3a02b94200d-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"3D-Stampboard-Boho-Fish---Step-13-14---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>When the molding paste was dry, I coated it all with a brown glaze, then added some paint around it (I used PaperArtsy paints,) leaving a bit of the newspaper in the background showing around each stenciled design.

It should though!</p>\r\n<p>Let me clarify;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"><strong>Quality of services</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">Two use cases;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 60px;\">(a) deploying a riscmodel at scale (<span style=\"display: inline !important; float: none; background-color: transparent; color: #000000; cursor: text; font-family: Georgia; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 16.8px; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;\">lets say 500K transactions per day)</span> that evaluates a transaction (from a customer) in realtime based on contra-information and determining in the process the level of supervision needed. Oh and by the way; one has to take into account ‘equality of right’ since the organization is a publicly owned organization.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 60px;\">(b) doing a one-time analysis on various sources, using advanced machine learning and where the output is used for a one-time policy influencing decision.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">The quality of services between (a) and (b) are like night and day. (a) needs to be run at scale, realitime (direct feedback), using contra-information, the provenance is hugely important, it is subject based, so there are privacy concerns, it’s an automated decision (there is heavy legal shit here), equality of rights (metadata like; what model did we use on what transaction, what data did we evaluate,…) and many more.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">(b) is a one-off….its output influences new policy or contributes to some insight. Your quality of services might be that the model is versioned, properly annotated and that the dataset is somehow archived properly to ensure repeatability.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">My point is that, whenever you start on an analytic journey, establish the quality of services that you require <em>on forehand as much as possible</em>. And for that to happen you need to have a clear explicit statement on how the required informationproduct contributes to the bottom line. So yes, a proper portfolio management process, a risk based impact assessment (!) and deployment patterns (architecture!) that are designed in advance!</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">With regard to datascience it is vital to make a conscious choice, before you start, of the required quality of services. If these services are high, you might wanna work together closely with system engineers, datamodelling experts, rule experts, legal experts, etc.. Only then, you might be able to deploy stuff and generate the value the field of datascience promises us.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"><strong>Separation of concerns</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">For those who do not know what ‘separation of concerns’ means, start with <a href=\"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Separation_of_concerns\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\">Wikipedia</a> or google <a href=\"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edsger_W._Dijkstra\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\">Edsger Dijkstra</a>, one of the greatest (Dutch) computer scientist…..</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">Anything IT related is suffering from the ‘overloading concerns’ issue. Some examples;</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>XBRL is a great standard, but suffers from overloading; integrity, validation, structure, meaning and presentation concerns are all bundled into one technical exchange format.</li>\r\n<li>Datavault is a great technical modeling paradigm, but it does not capture logical, linguistic or semantic concerns, and yet the data modelling community still tries</li>\r\n<li>Archimate is a great modeling notation in the Enterprise Architecture arena, why is it overloaded with process concerns? BPMN is such a better choice.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">And of course we see it in code and we have seen it for ages in all programming languages; human tendency to solve all challenges/problems with the tool they are dominantly familiar/trained with. Datascience is no different. Failing to separate concerns lies at&#0160; the root of many software related problems like maintainability, transparancy, changeability, performance, scaleability and many many more.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">Like the example I started with in this blog;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">A brilliant Python script where a staggering number of concerns have all been dealt with. This might not be a problem when the required quality of services is not that high. But when the required quality of service are high it becomes painfully clear that ‘deploying’ this code to production is a fantasy.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">Extraction, validation, cleansing and integration concerns might be better dealt with by making use of tools and techniques in the information (modeling) arena.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">Business rules might be better of designed (for example) by means of Rulespeak and subsequently making them more transparent for legal people and domain experts (which is btw – especially in AI – a huge concern!).</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">Visualization and presentation might be better of by using &#0160;tools that are already purchased by your organization, be it Tableau, SAS Visual Analytics, Qlik, Tibco or whatever.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Finally</strong></p>\r\n<p>Dear datascientist, stop blaming IT, architects or whoever that your brilliant code is not being deployed in production. Instead, reflect on your own role and your own part in the total supply chain of stuff that need to happen to actually get things working in production at the quality of services that are required.</p>\r\n<p>Dear organization, stop blaming datascientists for not delivering on the value which was promised. Start organizing, consciously, <strong>the operationalization of datascience</strong>. It is not a walk in the park, it is an assignment that requires an extremely broad skillset, an holistic view, cooperation and of course attention to human behavior/nature.</p>\r\n<p><em>And the majority of these challenges fall with management!</em></p>\r\n<p><em>Starting a datascience team or department without organizing the operationalisation is a waste of resources.&#0160;</em></p>\r\n<p><em>Operationalization of datascience IS NOT a technical problem!</em></p>\r\n<p><em>For my dataquadrant fans; it is all about transitioning from quadrant IV to II.</em></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>",

It is not a walk in the park, it is an assignment that requires an extremely broad skillset, an holistic view, cooperation and of course attention to human behavior/nature.</p>\r\n<p><em>And the majority of these challenges fall with management!</em></p>\r\n<p><em>Starting a datascience team or department without organizing the operationalisation is a waste of resources.&#0160;</em></p>\r\n<p><em>Operationalization of datascience IS NOT a technical problem!</em></p>\r\n<p><em>For my dataquadrant fans; it is all about transitioning from quadrant IV to II.</em></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>",

I got in a good walk.&#0160; It wasn&#39;t too cold but it wasn&#39;t really warm either.&#0160; It was nice for walking, though.&#0160; I got in my walk and then came home and relaxed for a bit. I didn&#39;t go back out.&#0160; I thought about it, but I didn&#39;t want to risk my car doing what it did yesterday.&#0160; I might try to go to Starbucks tomorrow afternoon, but I haven&#39;t decided yet. We&#39;ll see how I&#39;m feeling.</p>\r\n<p>I went down in my basement today because i don&#39;t have hot water again.&#0160; There was a lot of water down there, so there will be no hot water again for a few days.&#0160; I&#39;ll try to be patient and go down there again in four or five days.&#0160; It needs to go down a lot before I&#39;ll be able to do anything. I am trying to think of more trackers to put in my 2019 bullet journal.&#0160; If you have any idea, leave me a comment below!&#0160; I thought of a tracker / list today.&#0160; I&#39;ll put down major purchases and when I got them and where.&#0160; So say, a dryer, what date I got it and what store. It will be a good reference.&#0160; I also add some small appliances to it too.&#0160; Just to keep a list of things and when they were purchased. Of course the MacBook Pro will go on there!&#0160; Now, I just need to think up some other trackers to add!</p>",

I got in a good walk.&#0160; It wasn&#39;t too cold but it wasn&#39;t really warm either.&#0160; It was nice for walking, though.&#0160; I got in my walk and then came home and relaxed for a bit. I didn&#39;t go back out.&#0160; I thought about it, but I didn&#39;t want to risk my car doing what it did yesterday.&#0160; I might try to go to Starbucks tomorrow afternoon, but I haven&#39;t decided yet. We&#39;ll see how I&#39;m feeling.</p>\r\n<p>I went down in my basement today because i don&#39;t have hot water again.&#0160; There was a lot of water down there, so there will be no hot water again for a few days.&#0160; I&#39;ll try to be patient and go down there again in four or five days.&#0160; It needs to go down a lot before I&#39;ll be able to do anything. I am trying to think of more trackers to put in my 2019 bullet journal.&#0160; If you have any idea, leave me a comment below!&#0160; I thought of a tracker / list today.&#0160; I&#39;ll put down major purchases and when I got them and where.&#0160; So say, a dryer, what date I got it and what store. It will be a good reference.&#0160; I also add some small appliances to it too.&#0160; Just to keep a list of things and when they were purchased. Of course the MacBook Pro will go on there!&#0160; Now, I just need to think up some other trackers to add!</p>",

Il film di Fisher fa riflettere su una tragedia del nostro tempo che ha radici nell’individualità universale. Opera che invita alla riflessione e indica la solidarietà quale veicolo in grado di fornire risposte, il contrario della filosofia populista. “Styx” a breve approderà al parlamento europeo per il premio Lux e, realisticamente, afferma Fisher: “Credo che certi parlamentari europei non andranno nemmeno a vedere il mio film”. Wolfgang Fisher così riassume: “Il non avere soluzioni da soli è il vero problema”. Una storia comunque capace di “restituire anche molta speranza”, ha spiegato Noury che ha più volte rilevato come Amnesty International sia felice di sostenerla.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Il regista ha voluto come protagonista una persona colta, di professione medico, coraggiosa perché sa avventurarsi in mare con una barca a vela: tanto più audace se si pensa che è una donna e naviga in solitaria. Il genere femminile in questo caso è stato scelto – dice lo stesso Fisher – perché con un uomo al suo posto, la storia sarebbe stata più normale. Ciò non toglie che oggi, nel mondo ricco, la donna rappresenta il genere che ha fatto più conquiste in tema di diritti e per alcuni il futuro è suo. Quarantenne, esperta di navigazione, la protagonista (Susanne Wolf) parte da Gibilterra verso l’isola di Ascensione, un paradiso in mezzo all’oceano Atlantico dove ha deciso di fare le vacanze. Ma nella traversata, dopo una tempesta, trova sul cammino un battello pieno di profughi che sta facendo naufragio. Uno di loro, un ragazzino di quattordici anni (interpretato dal bravissimo Gedion Oduor Weseka, che viene da Nairobi dove – grazie a un’associazione non governativa – ha studiato recitazione) nuota fino a lei ed è tratto in salvo.

Il film di Fisher fa riflettere su una tragedia del nostro tempo che ha radici nell’individualità universale. Opera che invita alla riflessione e indica la solidarietà quale veicolo in grado di fornire risposte, il contrario della filosofia populista. “Styx” a breve approderà al parlamento europeo per il premio Lux e, realisticamente, afferma Fisher: “Credo che certi parlamentari europei non andranno nemmeno a vedere il mio film”. Wolfgang Fisher così riassume: “Il non avere soluzioni da soli è il vero problema”. Una storia comunque capace di “restituire anche molta speranza”, ha spiegato Noury che ha più volte rilevato come Amnesty International sia felice di sostenerla.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Il regista ha voluto come protagonista una persona colta, di professione medico, coraggiosa perché sa avventurarsi in mare con una barca a vela: tanto più audace se si pensa che è una donna e naviga in solitaria. Il genere femminile in questo caso è stato scelto – dice lo stesso Fisher – perché con un uomo al suo posto, la storia sarebbe stata più normale. Ciò non toglie che oggi, nel mondo ricco, la donna rappresenta il genere che ha fatto più conquiste in tema di diritti e per alcuni il futuro è suo. Quarantenne, esperta di navigazione, la protagonista (Susanne Wolf) parte da Gibilterra verso l’isola di Ascensione, un paradiso in mezzo all’oceano Atlantico dove ha deciso di fare le vacanze. Ma nella traversata, dopo una tempesta, trova sul cammino un battello pieno di profughi che sta facendo naufragio. Uno di loro, un ragazzino di quattordici anni (interpretato dal bravissimo Gedion Oduor Weseka, che viene da Nairobi dove – grazie a un’associazione non governativa – ha studiato recitazione) nuota fino a lei ed è tratto in salvo. La donna in quanto medico lo rianima e chiama i soccorsi, che tuttavia non arrivano. Cosciente che non agire significherebbe lasciar morire molte persone, la velista è dibattuta tra l’istinto di conservazione – avvicinarsi significa esporsi a rischio altissimo – e il dovere della solidarietà umana, tanto più forte in un medico la cui professione è dare la vita.
