That’s the story of not being able to share my life with a person that viscerally does not know what sharing is: one who is obsessed with invulnerability over being alive. It is a profound level of metaphysical poverty that I blame on the many toxic forms of modernism.

Rowena M. [RowenaMonde] @KinteSpace Your comment definitely resonates. I’ve been wondering what it is that kills our humanity, now I’m going to be looking at modernism in a different way

Rowena M. [RowenaMonde] David Batchelor- Chromophobia [caareviews.org]#bookreview

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @RowenaMonde Yes and there is a very real reason in European history to fear a certain shade of green as this color was manufactured with arsenic and killed quite a few—is this bit of history covered?

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @RowenaMonde ah, the color white stuff: do they talk about how the French (?) re-discovery of ancient Greek statues gave too much priority for the color white since the statues lost their pigment? …this worship of white leads directly to the Steve Jobs iPhone whiteness

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @RowenaMonde @tinybuddha cigarettes and, in recent history, antidepressants allow too many adults to ignore their feelings; most gainfully-employed, soft-spoken folks are masters of suppressing how they really feel and regard this toxicity as the hallmark of being an adult

Crystal Marie Fleming [alwaystheself] The most obvious thing about the Kavanaugh situation is that white women specifically and women collectively have never seriously challenged (white) male authority in this country.
