My treatise

milkwaynasa

A few years ago, I decided to compile all the bits of wisdom I had accumulated over the course of my personal development. This year, I committed to finishing it, and I succeeded.

For whatever reasons, a local publisher deemed that it was not sufficiently marketable for publication. I suspect it might have at least something to do with my lack of standardized credibility. Nevertheless, I have this “book”, or treatise, as I’m now inclined to call it, and I still want to do what I’ve always wanted to do with it, which is to share it with the world. So, I’ve gone ahead and made it available to anyone with a computer and an internet connection.

I present to you: The Omni Approach.

It is a pdf, and just under 50 pages. Enjoy it at your discretion and/or leisure, and feel free to disseminate :)

What’s the word…?

onism

A friend recently shared a fabulous find, The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, in which creator, John Koenig, has invented new words for humanity to utilize, and wherein “each original definition aims to fill a hole in the language – to give a name to emotions we all might experience, but don’t yet have a word for.”

I was particularly struck by the “onism” concept, as I suffer from it myself, from time to time. That image above came from an article highlighting the project, and then I took a look at the source site, and found this beautiful video to accompany the word. The explorer in me wept at its conclusion.

The whole video series really looks quite remarkable. What an awesome adventure in the language of emotion and the human experience :)
