COVID Diary: Unexpected Holistics

No one invites tragedy, I’m thinking as I stand in the new-new garden, looking at the sun rising over the quiet city. Or not so quiet. It’s becoming a bird-city. Less contrails in the air and less traffic noise gives me pause to watch a flight of thirty-odd swans arrowing the sky.

And I’m wondering about these crisis points as times when the World (meaning; life, time, history, everything bigger than us), becomes strangely unavoidable. Even when we are so removed from each other, we cannot ignore the larger, and more fundamental realities beyond our job; our habits; our personal aspirations now.

What it means to have a friend, or someone there for you when you may be feeling hungry, sick, or alone.

What it means to have fresh air on our faces.

What this experience must be like for all the rest of life beyond my isolation.

Dolphins returning to Venician canals.

 

An Anarch’s Pledge

If you need aid, I will try to give it,

If you are unheard, I will listen,

If you are sad, I will pull funny faces and make terrible puns until you are not,

If you start to sing, I will join in,

If you are alone – we are here.

We do these things because we are animals, we are humans, because we are interconnected.

Work-from-home advice, best remote-office practices, apps, and online work platforms if you need to translate your work life to digital.

Skype and Zoom connect-ups.

Creative (written word predominantly) advice, mentoring, story-wrangling, or encouragement.

Some platforms you can always pick up a gig or two:

Upwork – largest site for every digital worker from code to illustration and writing.

Guru – slightly smaller version of the above.

People-per-hour – very piecemeal gig work.

Fiver– see above, but more so.

Freelanced – brilliant community and portfolio sections, but job competition can be fierce.

Zirtual – specializing in virtual PA’s.

Feraculture: Philosophy, Pigeon-Ideas & Notes

Statement of Interest. Notes.

I’m fascinated (obsessed by, perhaps) by the notion of ferality, as described by Merriam-Webster as;

 

Definition of feral:

a. of, relating to, or suggestive of a wild beast (feral teeth) (feral instincts).

b. not domesticated or cultivated (feral animals).

c. having escaped from domestication and become wild (feral cats).

 

This definition pictures a previously domesticated animal that has returned to a natural state; city dogs, ponies, humans who have ‘gone wild‘. One way of thinking about this is a previously colonized creature now living in nonnormative ways, and exhibiting nonnormative traits.
