God Is Love! Yet love, even without sex, is glorious! Thank You Sir! I Am Blessed By This Write Up! Thank You!
I was young once. I was certainly a bit more ignorant. So I listened as another young man told me about his experience with sex. Since I had yet to experience sexual intercourse, I was curious. Since I had no wish to admit my inexperience, I was also silent.
What did he have to say? Well, young men have a tendency to brag about such things, but he did not. We were friends, and there was no one else to hear. His experience disappointed him. He had found sex unpleasantly messy.
We make jokes about bodily fluids, but during sex we share them. This sharing is quite contrary to our upbringing. In our modern, clean, antiseptic world, we sanitize our living spaces and confine bodily fluids to trash cans, toilets, and biomedical waste containers. We know sharing bodily fluids with another is just a way to spread disease. Yet my…

Imagine Having Communist China For A Next-door Neighbor
Occasionally I visit Insightful Geopolitics – Impartial Informative Always. Like the writer, SANDOMINA, I am a former military officer. Unlike the writer, I live in America, on the other side of the world. So, I can relate. Then again, I cannot. I can only imagine.
India and China border each other. Fortunately, these two nations are separated by the world’s most massive mountain range, the legendary Himalayas. Still, India and China have had military clashes with each other. Because of its ideological beliefs, Communist China has trouble getting along with all of its neighbors. India, because it is a nation of human beings, is, of course, somewhat difficult too.
What is SANDOMINA‘s latest post? 04 June 1989: The Date CCP Wants to Forget – Insightful Geopolitics. In 1989 China had huge demonstrations in…

Automatticians work in 79 countries — each from their preferred workspace and during their preferred working hours. I asked colleagues from New Zealand, the US, Spain, and Sri Lanka what they like most about working this way.
Chris, you joined us early this year. What do you like about working in a globally distributed company so far?
There are two things that I love about working in Data for a globally distributed company: the flexibility to work in a manner that best fits my life and how it has made me more conscious of how I communicate ideas and issues.
For me, eight hours in an office was a mixture of the work I needed to do, browsing the internet for various hobby-related shenanigans, or wandering around the office annoying my colleagues to go for coffee. Not always dedicated precisely to the cause.
Now, I can do dedicated…

Insightful Reading! Thank You!
I asked my colleagues in India, the United States, the Netherlands, and Germany about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected them. They share how reducing their time online has helped them, and compare their experience at Automattic with those they had at companies that are not fully distributed.
Anand, how has COVID-19 affected you and your work at Automattic?
In March, new school sessions were about to start when COVID-19 forced a nationwide shutdown in India. The kids were happy as — at the time — it meant a few extra months of summer vacation. Six months later, schools have shifted to online classes. We had to forgo our summer vacation and our kids no longer like it! For reasons unknown to me, my 9-year-old daughter likes taking her classes from my home office (thankfully, it’s only two hours each day) and my 5-year-old son is increasingly trying…

I thought about calling this series “This Old Bodymind” to evoke “This Old House”, but I don’t want to reinforce the notion that you have to be old to be disabled. So, I’m trying on “This Chronic Bodymind”.
This first installment of “This Chronic Bodymind” is about an essential part of my coping system: pillows. I don’t know how I endured before assembling my trio of body pillow, pregnancy pillow, and head pillow.
- Separate, Isolate, Bolster, Squeeze
- My Current Coping Trio
- Body Pillows
- Head Pillows
- Pregnancy Pillows
Separate, Isolate, Bolster, Squeeze
I’m a side-sleeper with chronic pain and chronic muscle spasms who prefers fetal most of the time but also likes yearner. Some pillow rules-of-thumb I’ve developed in my quest for relief and sleep are:
It starts with the tuck. I tuck one arm of a U-shaped pregnancy pillow in along…
