flying toward other

setteling new ways into a rethinking of strategies and effects and damages caused by patriarchy is a need that we should all work together in order to find ways and build dialogue into demanding and requesting a new constitution and a new law in a country where law is no fair and differs in the term and the practice between the two sexes and create a misogynist view and hatred and i would say toward woman because woman are a big amount of the constitution of the social mechanic and strategy .
from here and in a country where a main stream of the population is very stuck in the spread and the dogma and in a vision of a 'woman' and how would she do as a 'doer' . we are very much back in the time and this is where Simone de Beauvoir started her way in her book 'La force de l 'age' and was leading a life on her own as an individual first and an intellectual and mentioned in the the 'prologue' of her book "de meme que je refusais autre fois d etre definie comme 'une enfant' , a present je ne me pensais pas comme 'une femme' : j etais moi " translation :
as i was refusing previously to be considered as a child i do refuse in the present to be treated as a 'woman' because i am neither the first neither rhe second one : i am myself .
In this phrase i think it was one starting point toward thinking one self beyond the borders and being innovative into thinking the 'possible' as a notion .
various times we want to dream our existence where in a dream we can fly and we would like to keep flying because to land would be the end of a flight .
i am not refering to closing eyes on the ground constitutions and the notions of love , property , justice and economy i think we should also have ability and that spark that take us beyond our time .
thinking to solve the now matters and build visions through ,
the existence of each one of us is the vision of his/her own flight and the flight can lead elsewhere some times unknown fields .
i think this is where we embrace our familiarity with the notion of space and culture and commune when we are set free from our own bonds as barriers toward the infiltration of the new and the reach of the beyond .
at least i can tell because of what i ve known and because of how i took my first flight .

Hello sister, I hear you

Hello sister,

I hear you loud, we have to dismantle the power of patriarchy which has eaten up all the fabric of our society and left it in tatters. And yes, we can.

Defining oneself is the very

Defining oneself is the very first step to determining how you end up and what you fight for because if you do no know yourself how can you know which battles to choose fighting and which ones to let go of. Thanks Maria for this reminder.

Infiltration of the New

I love your phrase, "infiltration of the new and the reach of the beyond." What a beautiful concept! Thanks for this lovely article. You raise fundamental points about equity and voice with the words of poetry. "Thinking oneself beyond the borders!" Yes, indeed!
