And as I opened Boldomatic to create an image for this blog post (considering ”From the self to the selfie”) this is what’s at the top of my feed.
with a little less selfies
and a little more selfless.
Well. What to say other than that I’m hoping more people will listen to this podcast (and don’t miss out on the Q&A starting about half way in, as often is the case, that part is often extra interesting to listen to). If nothing else, because I think it’s too easy a route to take to ”blame the selfies”, judging them and the habit of taking them as being egotistical and self-centered. Without taking into consideration the intent behind it, there’s no way for me to know. And I prefer to avoid unnecessary generalizations, if I can.
What’s your take on selfies? Do you take and post them yourself?
Are there too many of them? Are selfies wrong/bad/evil? What do they tell you about the person posting it?
But now it’s 2015 and a new year is here (given that year as such is just a man-made construct, just like the concept of time). Ahead lies many moments of Now, and my only resolve for 2015 is rooted in the word EXPANSION.
Somebody tweeted about different concepts of integration, assimilation, inclusion, exclusion during the fall and I involved in the thread…. and suddenly the word expansion popped up, and something happened within, there was a click and things fell into place.
Since then I’ve returned time and again to that particular word, expansion, both in thinking and in conversation, even though it has yet to reach my writings. But now I am beginning to put words to my thoughts and I hope to return to the concept of expansion a number of times during the coming year.
I’m also very curious to find out what a year with the intent of EXPANSION will lead to. Do you have any resolve for the new year that is upon us, opening up one moment of Now after the other?
