Freedom have a price

Nothing is for free, even freedom have a price.
Our freedom in Europe, depended on these brave guys.
They paid the highest price for our freedom.

In a way today we all french

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself, and to do it aloud

Better to die fighting for freedom then be a prisoner all the days of your life
*Bob Marley – jamaican singer, songwriter, guitarist and activist*

Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery,
I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally
*Abraham Lincoln – the sixteenth president of the United States*

The french people’s desire for freedom is stronger
than their fear  of the cowards of the darkness.

Liberté, égalité, fraternité

The board in this small pond is for the ducks
wonder if one of them has arrived on bike ..?

A real patriot was the fellow who got a parking ticket
and so rejoiced about the system works

Another word for freedom

F 90

This cliché is at the highest degree of misinterpreted understanding of the word freedom:
Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose
pure misguided selfishness or dependence of the chains.

Who calls the lack of freedom for a win-win situation..?

Feel free, the gate’s open

Weekly photo challenge “Descent

There’re times, we’ve to sink to the bottom of our misery to understand truth 
just as we must descend to the bottom of a well to see the stars in broad daylight
*Vaclav Havel – czech poet and president*

Such an abrupt descent shouldn’t always be necessary
but no doubt headwinds gives more wisdom, skill and shrewdness than tailwind.

A descent to life sometimes is a upgrade
sometimes we’ve to get close to – to see “our own sheep fence” have an open gate.

Relaxing contrasts


Is this a contrast to your daily life..?

That something might be relaxing, calls for cooperation between brain and body
probably it requires that it is something different perhaps even a full contrast to daily life
for some it is about physical activity – for other physical calm
for some it is about mental activity – for other mental calmness
the main thing is that it is a contrast to daily life
There are also elements of danger in this
namely that the brain or body gets a shock because of the change
it is quite common to body or brain feel unwell the first few days
some of us are very encased in our routines.

In fact, it should be embedded in our daily life
but it is rarely the way it works out
perhaps it’s the reason that freedom
when we finally get it
doesn’t meet expectations and be more jail than freedom ..?

Running started as a way of relaxing.
it’s the only time I have to myself
no phones, e-mails or faxes
