Love, Authenticy & Predators

Be authentic, open and loving, but remember life is war.
With weak people seeking power and acting as bullies, we sometimes need to seek refuge in the figurative treehouse, just like animals. This reminder came from Athens, Greece, with the video below, which illustrates a scene Dad and I witnessed outside our house. Feathers blew lightly across the snow, betraying violence in the Linden tree.
Author Paulo Cuelho says, "Love does not need to be understood. It needs only to be shown ... The world around you will reward you." And sociologist/inspirational speaker Brene Brown says we should let ourselves be deeply, vulnerably seen and love with our whole hearts, though there is no guarantee."
Sure, indulge your emotions, but be fierce. Consider the movie Life As War, the third film in a trilogy about modern society, with moving Philip Glass music. It depicts our hyper-technological life, and the absence of nature, which adds to unnecessary fear. Ευχαριστώ, Βασίλη μου!
