Parisian Sparks of Inspiration. It goes without saying, during my Journey, the assistance of Firefighters has been effective several times: anxiety, panic attacks and terror attacks. Once my Self Help book will be done, and translated (2020 is near), 10 per cent of my revenue will go to these guys and their families. “FIGHT TO SAVE US” THE CHIMP PARADOX This book was suggested me by a Serviceman who is using this manual as program for Mind Management of his troops.

Thoughts on: “Tribe” by Sebastian Junger

Originally posted on Poor Bjorn's Notes to Self:
“Tribe” started as an article for Vanity Fair and was later expanded on and turned into this book. It revolves around how at odds the structure of modern society is with our tribal instincts and how people directly, or indirectly, affected by war have problems readjusting to normal life. —— What really stuck with me with this book was how people in war torn nation look back on war with nostalgia. Many even preferring war times to what they are now experiencing. —— 📝 Genetic adaptation takes about 25000 years to… Continue reading Thoughts on: “Tribe” by Sebastian Junger

Willie Gillis, an ordinary guy, on The Satuday Evening Post.

Because I found these two articles so pertinent, and relevant, I would like to thank this cowboy, who is not posting since 2012, so I assume he might be somewhere else. If he is still alive, he can contact me, and ask me to delete his posts, or leave them, with his courtesy. During the WWII years Norman Rockwell created a character named Willie Gillis — an ordinary guy from a small town who joined the army.

Hello, bonjour Vietnam.

Hello, bonjour all Human Kindness 🙂 I have almost finished my book reading of “Tribe”. A few pages left. Thank you Sebastian Junger, and thank your Dad’s, for those inspiring conversations. Me, too, I made a “new world” talking at the table with my daddy, when he left me express my thoughts, once in a while. He passed me all time heros like artists eg. Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo, to endavours eg. Magellano, De Gama, Cristoforo Colombo. He made me love sport Champions eg. Jim Thorpe, and co-regional Marco Pantani, or wanting to visit Indian American Reservations and Tierra del Fuego with Southern Emisphere sky. We’ve been watching all time western … Continue reading Hello, bonjour Vietnam.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Good Morning you all, in my last days off work, I ‘ve decided to wake up, cosy and lazy, totally no hurry, and take a breakfast in bed.  Weather is still cold and snowy out there. Not only in France, but also in Italy, Wales and Canada. Wherever I have peers and friends, it’s white … Don’t you find snow zen like?  It compells people to go slower, be careful on the way you march in, the shoes you choose, the way you drive. Being aware of what usually you are not taking the time to. Like breathing. Can you just take a moment … Continue reading Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
