fell in love with her here:
@davidgraeber: I’ve never been married before. Even though the proper ceremony is later, in London & Berlin, I have never been more moved than that someone who actually knows me would want to be with me forever.
then (after googling her) fell in love some more: ie: http://a4kids.org/ et al
adding page shortly after this.. and resonations with this comment: brings me comfort to know that when he left this world he was surrounded by her love – renata

Hey friends, can you tell me how do you make yourself finish projects? How are you avoiding rushing or jumping from one case to another? It is a problem for me. That said, I am a rather diligent person, brought up in the traditions of Soviet puritanism. 1/

[added the it is me page (2013) just after a year with our experimentation w a museum of care .. people were thinking they were free of school curriculum – but it’s so engrained in us.. they kept trying to write one.. as you say ‘make themselves do something’.. we found this seeming freedom to be hugely compromising to fittingness.. and so then also to belonging ness – which we found to be the two basic needs/essence of human being]
after adding thread here.. someone replied to nika: I free flow and allow priorities to show themselves.. then do those..regroup and regroup constantly.. allowing the flow where least resistance appears.. if there is resistance then… why must the project be completed .. go where the energy naturally leans? Less consuming so…
and her response: Yes, but if you work with other people, that most of us are going, then they depend upon you.
ie: cure ios city
allows/orgs for the ‘free flow.. regroup regroup constantly‘ your friend writes about
again.. brown belonging law
I can make myself do almost anything. But as soon as I start to force myself, the result (and the process) become pitiful and self-defeating. I get pitiful texts, tortured drawings and so on. David and I talked a lot about it.

that’s all of us.. (if we’re honest w/selves).. and why the supposed to’s of school/work and any form of people telling people what to do – (even if it’s yourself).. and any form of measuring/accounting (what is a project.. why must i finish it.. et al) .. is killing us.. is perpetuating not us ness
In this seemingly mess, there was a consciously designed internal organization. I would compare @davidgraeber ‘s arrangement to a complex but well-functioning architectural structure in which different people, circumstances and spaces coexist and reinforce each other.

exactly.. would you rather appear to be a mess or be a mess (magis esse quam videri)..

A really important question is how to take control of the means of production of the symbolic order in which we live.
Everything else will happen by itself.
then this will happen by itself: ‘in undisturbed ecosystems ..the average individual, species, or population, left to its own devices, behaves in ways that serve and stabilize the whole..’ –Dana Meadows

Interesting thing is that everybody “pay attention to the symbolic order”, even people who does not know that it exist.
was talking to @brewster_kahle from @internetarchive
They avoid the logic of buying and selling content. Instead, they work in the paradigm of the library: borrow and return. Read it and give it back. That’s the way to do it, naturally. https://t.co/oOfbnRZFyG

it’s not that we don’t have enough resources.. it’s that we’ve lost what it means to be resourceful
