liberation theology:
Liberation theologians base their social action upon the Bible scriptures describing the mission of Jesus Christ, as bringing a sword (social unrest), e.g. Isaiah 61:1, Matthew 10:34, Luke 22:35-38 Matthew 26:51-52 — and not as bringing peace (social order). This Biblical interpretation is a call to action against poverty, and the sin engendering it, and as a call to arms, to effect Jesus Christ's mission of justice in this world. In practice, the theology includes the Marxist concept of class struggle, thus emphasizing the person's individual self-actualization as part of God's divine purpose for mankind. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberation_theology

I feel great as soon as I hear them. classic lyrics: "you! we nah like you! go away! go AWAY!", "if yuh know yuh number blocked nah badda call me, cause me nah gon answer even fi mi mommy".

I am looking up grad schools & Master's programs in development. I so don't even like school. dig this course description: "This course examines the problematique of conceptualising development as a critical paradigm and assesses the competing paradigms in development in light of their epistemological and normative theoretic foundations." haha I can barely read it. shiit son. problematiQUE?

also, Le Tigre "Deceptacon" in a face cream commercial??

rivers: Bow, Massawippi, Ebro, Demerara. I want to see the AMAZON, encontro das aguas, Negro, Solimoes.

work is driving me crazy.
My birthday is coming / I can't believe the way time is passing. there is so much to DO & explore & I am in such a hurry. do I go to Brazil in the new year, after my Portuguese course is over but during the rainy season? or do I go now, when it is dry & easier to get around but I know barely anything? I want to rock-paper-scissors all my decisions, flip a coin.
speaking of coins, they are piling up in my bedroom - there is hardly any sense carrying them around because they are nearly worthless. $1, $5, $10. it takes $200 Guyanese to make $1 Canadian. I have started thinking that anything over $1000 is expensive.

where are you? what are you doing, & thinking about?

beyond my job, I am loving this life. last night Maddi came over just after sunset, & we bought roti & then the power went out for a long time so we sat out on the balcony & talked in the dark. I want to find a good place to watch the sunset. the clouds here, the sky is incredible.

hey you
