Meaning and morality of one’s life come from within oneself.
Healthy, strong individuals seek self expansion by experimenting
and by living dangerously. Life consists of an infinite number of
possibilities and the healthy person explores as many of them as
possible… the good life is ever changing, challenging, devoid of
regret, intense, creative and risky.
Friedrich Nietzsche (via yeshecholwa)

ETA: This is a scene from The House I Live In, a film on the American drug war and its effects on communities of color, education, the class disparity and the prison industrial complex.  I cannot recommend this film highly enough.

I haven’t been seeing people very much this summer. Being alone has been enjoyable to the point that I had forgot/devalued the value of good company. Tonight I felt blessed. The sky had dimmed to a navy blue by the time we made it back to the car.

I used to wonder why some Palestinian people would engage in actions that could only provoke the aggressor further. Then I realized that to ask a people to live quietly, while they have no justice and no freedom, is to ask them to live “peacefully” as slaves. “Peace” without justice or freedom is slavery. It’s like asking a battered woman to live “peacefully” with her abuse. We all want the bloodshed to stop. But what about the daily humiliation and institutionalized oppression?
I was reminded of a part in “The Hunger Games” when Katniss considers abandoning the resistance against the oppressor, in exchange for “safety”. Gale’s response was telling. He said: “Safe to do what? Starve? Work like slaves? Send their kids to the reaping?”
Consider this: If a woman is being raped, things would be a lot more “peaceful” if she didn’t resist. But, asking her not to resist—just because her attacker is physically stronger—is asking her to accept her own abuse and oppression for the sake of “peace”. This is what the world is asking Palestinians to do.
And sometimes what seems to the world as just ineffective tactics, like throwing a rock at a tank, is in fact an act of resistance. It is a powerful statement to the oppressor—and the world—that they refuse to be enslaved. That dignity and self-respect are even more beloved to them than their own lives.
It is a statement that you can take their lives. But not their freedom.

I went for a run in an attempt  to cure my mood. I ran until the heaviness moved into my legs. There were fireflies along the path, dogs barking, kids smoking, and fireworks spewing a new array of colors into the sunset.  In the end I didnt feel any lighter.
