The birth of ideas

December 11, 2016 Leave a comment

A very interesting TED talk on “Where good ideas come from” by Steven Johnson.  Ideas according to him are not just individual “Eureka” moments.  His fascinating tour takes us from the “liquid networks” of London’s coffee houses to Charles Darwin’s long, slow hunch to today’s high-velocity web.

Protest

December 8, 2016 8 comments

Write a new post in response today’s word ‘Protest’

Her tender arms
Could not resist
The brutal force
Of animal instinct

The lecherous look
Of a trusted relative
Scared her to death
Beneath the sheets

Gagged by social stigmas
No one dared speak
A silent protest
Wearily fell asleep

The morning sun breathed hope
And a new resolve
She would be slave no more
To a heartless enemy

A new strength, A new voice
A freedom, A choice
Wiping tears of self-pity
She crushed fake loyalties

A silent protest became a storm
Truth had gathered an army
Of brave soldiers
A leader was born!
