All (About) the Juicy Details

Prove it to Me

Which statement is more convincing?

  1. Alec is the most patriotic man you’d ever want to meet.
  1. Each Memorial Day, Marco hangs three American flags from his front porch, one for each of his schoolmates who died in Iraq; sings with his church group a medley of The Star Spangled Banner, America the Beautiful, and America at the local VA hospital; and serves a ham and eggs dinner at a soup kitchen.

Hoop Hoop Hoopoe

Have you just noticed a long billed bird suddenly walking on the ground, bobbing its head and picking up insects with its long bill? The head has a smart crest too tipped with black at the ends, too, right? 576 more words

Nature

腳步。轉換

窗外的雨滴滴答答下了,已經好一陣子了
這回借了一本貼近生活的小書,每一篇散文都小小的,短短的
可是,總能有點什麼點到心上
想放點輕鬆的音樂,在不干擾的前提下放鬆心情
結果徒然
近日內的腦子過於理性
很想回復那種看到世界正想跟我說話,就能聽進一些的狀態
既然背景音一直搞不好
索性就直接聽著雨聲了

聽著大雨、小雨
摩托車騎過、喇叭聲
雨滴穿過屋簷,落在地上、葉子上
偶而汽車直駛過,想像激起的水花,在空氣中跳動著
搭配久違穿戴著溫度的文字
舒適著、感受著

每每常被散文的最後一句
有點相關卻無來由的短句提醒著

生活中、生命中,漸漸遠離的那個面向
滿足,找到一種方法,可以重新回到這個軌道

這回只要看到喜歡的單詞,就在本子上記下
再看到一次,就在他外圍圈上一圈
有些單詞是形容詞,正向、負向都有
誰說生活裡只有面對?
逃避也是一種面對的方式
有些單詞看到後,就找不到了
剛剛好像有寫過,還是沒有?
若有似無,就再寫下一次
翻來覆去,在某個角落找到上回填下的字
原來你在這裡!
沒看到也沒關係,已經再寫一次加深印象了

就這麼寫著,寫著
頁面被筆水慢慢爬滿了,像是磚牆長滿了藤蔓
密密麻麻的、越來越費力才能找到空隙
有些直著寫,有些橫式
整本書看完的時候,這頁會是什麼模樣呢?

比起那種理論與實務,加強能力和邏輯的書本
這麼一來速度緩慢多了

可是很安心:)

練習讓自己可以沉靜
沉浸在有溫度的世界
在這裡效率和速度不是關鍵
心的感受才是焦點
也許有時候要使點力才能進入這種狀態
但是不要忘記怎麼回到這裡
不管這條路上來有沒有陪伴
都要緊握這種可以感受原始自然本質的珍貴能力

那身為一個人才有點意義

Violence around Us

By Christopher Chao

I think violence in the US is more popular. For example, I know when most US-made video games are sold to other countries, usually some violent parts will be deleted. 113 more words

Media Violence

By Cristina Amaral

I agree that the media sensationalizes violence because it is more interesting for the viewers. Unfortunately, most people pay attention when they’re being shown violent scenes on television or when they’re reading about violence in the papers. 62 more words
