Psychochromatic Redemption

A bit of everything, just to keep my erroneous mind busy.

Another good book on a great topic

We live in a society that celebrates freedom of speech, though when you express your opinions you are blamed, criticized, you are the elephant in the room. But you know what? Instead of being quiet and silently dissaproving things that happen around you, why not address them. Therefore, let’s talk about subjects people don’t like to talk.

First that comes to my mind it’s gender inequality. And after reading Men explain things to me (audio version) by Rebecca Solnit, I had to address it. I’ve seen it and felt it in my work previous work place, so I know what the author means.

I mean, why are men believed to be better than women and why are women silently accepting it? After everything Emmeline Pankhurst and the suffragettes have endured, after Rossa Parks, women are still silent and obedient, like lambs. And men, why do you consider yourselves better leaders, better scientists, better athletes? It’s not like women haven’t proved you wrong already.

Even when both men and women are incompetent and can’t do their jobs properly, women are being sacked whilst men get a second, third or even forth chance. See Theresa May Vs Boris Johnson.

How is this possible in a world that praises humans rights and equality? How can this still be happening in a society that considers itself modern? Why are we hanging on so tight to ancient customs and perceptions?

Hierophanic ideas

Word of the day is hierophanic: adj. sacred; that embodies sacred power

Thousands of years spent

Destroying hierophanic,

Powerful ideas.

Disconnect before it’s too late

Are we heading toeards 1984? Not back in time, but Orwell’s masterpiece. I’ve read an article on The Mind Unleashed and got goosebumbs. It’s not enough that at times reality seems like a horrible nightmare, soon we will be living in a dystopian society.
How can this be possible and why are people not protesting? Have we become too weak to protest and too unaware of the manipulation and control? Has the Internet subdued us in such a way that we’ll do anything to be online, to keep ourselves updated?
And to add to this the fact, Chinese scientists have created the 500 MegaPixels camera so Big Brother doesn’t lose sight of anyone’s action. I am speechless and most of all, worried. Where are we heading as a society? How long until the other governments will follow the Chinese example? Is there an escape? Maybe the Amazon forest if it’s not going to burn down…

Meanwhile, just try to spend more time outdoors and disconnect from the online world from time to time.

Distorted

A caricature.

A terrible whang

After trying something new

Back to old routine…

A good thriller for winter days

I haven’t done a book review for a long time and it’s not because I haven’t read anything this year (I have, 36 books to be more exact) but because I didn’t feel the need to review them. Up until the last one, up until The Family Upstairs.

A couple of days ago, I got a email from Goodreads, inviting me to vote for the book of the year. First stop, in genre search, was mysteries and thrillers. I had to vote for The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides and I truly hope it wins ( will do a review about it soon), but whilst there another book caught my eye.

The family upstairs by Lisa Jewell had a very appealing front cover and after reading the blurb I went on searching for it. I had no idea I had had it downloaded on my Kindle a couple of months ago. So I started reading..

And I couldn’t stop. Apart for Lisa Jewell being a great writer, that keeps you on your toes the whole time, I was mostly intrigued by the ideas in this book. How can a charismatic person control so many people and how come most of them are unaware of this manipulation. This was what sticked me, apart from the great narrative, from the point of the view of three different characters, from the plot that was very clever constructed.

I truly recommend this book, for anyone who enjoys a good thriller. It easily gets 5 stars.

Copious

Word of the day is copious: adj.

Very large in amount and number.

A copious feast

It’s mindfully devoured by

The empty humans.

Cheers!

Word of the day is screecham: n. Whisky

Let’s have a screecham

And forget all the bad things

Life needs to be lived.
