Kiki


Kiki Bowman, my new dog.
Well, I have actually had her with me for 7 months, so she is not so new, she is 9 months old.
She is a crazy happy dog.
When I first got her she would bark when ever I hammered, which made working difficult, or noisy.
Now I can drill and hammer and she doesn't seem to notice.


Kiki at 2 months old.

Je Suis Charlie


From here 


Ana Work


The free communication of ideas and opinions is one of the most precious of the rights of man. Every citizen may, accordingly, speak, write, and print with freedom, but shall be responsible for such abuses of this freedom as shall be defined by law.

Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen 1789 Wikipedia



...When laughter and violence are thought of as distinct and absolute entities, the mocked are left silent and humiliated, while the victims of violence become afraid to speak – or, in the case of the Paris shootings, are dead. To truly value free speech, it’s necessary to avoid delineating laughter and violence as opposite extremes.
The definition of free speech needs to be broadened. It’s not merely speaking: it’s being responded to.
If one is responded to, then at least he or she has been listened to.
