I just want to change the world with love.

Heavily armed police fired teargas and rubber bullets to force hundreds of protesters out of the centre of Ferguson, Missouri, on the fourth night of protests over the shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. 

Demonstrators, who for hours had sniper rifles trained on them while they protested with their hands up as an emblem of peaceful protest, complained that they were subjected to military-style tactics as they fled through gas-filled residential side-streets. 

Read the latest report from Ferguson 

"We become the center of our own worlds, with the constant connection a validation of our own importance. The removal of that connection does not disturb anyone else, but the removal of that validation makes it clear that the world spins on without us. And when we return, we discover that not much really changes in the time we spent away from social media, away from the office, and even away from friends and family."

What I learned from totally unplugging and shutting up for three days

It’s better to focus on living your best life than in sharing your running commentary on it with the whole world

(via theweekmagazine)

So true. Disconnected helps us realize on the one hand the importance of living connected with your friends and family. On the other hand it relieves us from the illusion that we are part of a vortex spinning faster and faster and somehow drive this engine that without us will sputter to a halt.

Once we cannot unplug my question is who is the machine and who is the user?

I think great quality of life comes from unplugging consistently - for me, it is Sundays. Unplugging just improves your life.

face on the floor,
searching for artwork
trying to find a masterpiece."
