cookieheartdistro. The Premodern world distinguished between good and evil, a moral right

The Premodern world distinguished between good and evil, a moral right and wrong, however with the transition to liberal society the postmodern ideas of independence and variability of truth overtook society's mind. Instead of good and evil the postmodern embraces conflicting narratives, personal history, individual experience. Neither view point is sufficient for understanding human existence, the postmodern echews consequence and good vs evil is a matter of which side you are on. A fundamental question to consider is whether people are born good or bad. If as many social scientists will have us believe humans are good, where does the evil come from? What is the initial corrupting that turns good to bad? Who was the first bad person to infect the rest with their evil? Alternatively religion assumes human are bad, in need of salvation and redemption for their terrible actions and thoughts. There was a nun at the Cathedral building who bore witness to so much sin and evil that it took over her soul as well. Burdened with the sight of never ending sinners this nun took it upon herself to play God. She began to exercise judgement on the unlucky Vancouverites who came to her for absolution. How many victims she killed before going insane and turning the knife on herself is unknown but her redemptive spirit still haunts the building always in search of a sinner to punish. No matter how many she killed she never saw herself as evil, she was an angel of death killing in the name of justice. #ghosts #horrorstories #haunted #cathedralbuilding #925 #vancouverealism #scarystories #creepypasta #willies #boo #vancity #shortstories

zvscollection. FRANZ KAFKA
“The Trial” (1925)
“Metamorphosis and Other Stories” (2003

FRANZ KAFKA “The Trial” (1925) “Metamorphosis and Other Stories” (2003) . . . The books of #FranzKafka really force us to think about the relationship between artists and their publics. Despite being one of the more celebrated authors of modern #literature, #Kafka in fact hoped that his novels wouldn’t even be published. To that end, he didn’t even finish most of them. When they were initially published, they ended in ways he hadn’t intended - obviously a problem. But the solution in recent years has been to publish them with their final sentences just dropping off right in the middle, as written. The case could be made that this is authentic or respectful or even interesting and experimental, but for me it’s intolerable, reducing narrative constructions to the bewildering indeterminacy of real life and sapping them of their power to provide any meaning that justifies their existence. So I stick with his finished works, which are as brilliant as people say they are. “The Trial” is his masterpiece, a harrowing tale of trying to navigate the complexities of social institutions while being on the receiving end of their power, and his short stories are brutal but compassionate metaphorical examinations of the human condition. My favorite is “A Hunger Artist,” which I read not only as a story about the sufferings that artists face due to popular taste, but as a story about the consequences of having an identity. . . .

➡️ Slide for close ups ➡️ 3/7 days in the #urbanjungleweek challenge that I’m doing with @azed.arts and @wonderland_of_an_artist and @sheprefersdrawing1 ! The third prompt is “Plantlady”. In this painting we are the Plantlady, we see by her eyes. This is how I tackled the subject. I hope it gives you this feeling and also that you’ll like it! 🌹 This challenge is hosted by : @asiaorlando_ @cargaillustration @dancelstudio @frannyversum @frollein_schmid @mae.artistry @moehrenkunst @petrabraunillustration @samy_loewe @nancychalmers_ _ 🇫🇷 The original (in french) : « Monde végétal, son monde sans pareil. Ou qu’elle aille se trouvent quelques merveilles. Qu’elles soient tropicales ou du désert, de quelques ans ou achetés hier. Elle les aime toutes, elle les chérit. Et chaque jour, somme toute, arrivent de nouveaux ami. Tous les marchands la connaissent, de ville ou d’autres pays. Mais c’est l’heure d’amener un semblant de pluie. Et elle se faufile entre elles qui l’attrapent et l’épinglent. C’est l’heure d’abreuver les habitants de la jungle. Elle arrive au seuil d’une pièce éblouît. Au parterre de gazon et d’arbustes fourni. Et le voilà qui trône comme une peinture de Louis. L’arrosoir sur son caisson qu’elle prend réjouit. » _ 🇬🇧 The translation (hopefully not awkward) : « Plant world, priceless world. Wherever she goes, there are wonders. Whether tropical or desert, a few years old or bought yesterday. She loves them all, she cherishes them. And every day, after all, new friends arrive. All the merchants know it, from town or from other countries. But it's time to bring a semblance of rain. And she sneaks between them but some catch her and pin her. It's time to water the inhabitants of the jungle. She arrives at the threshold of a dazzling room. The floor is grass and shrubs provided. And here it is, on its throne like a Louis painting. The watering can on a box and she takes it pleased. » _ #wateringcan #friendsofillustration #plantsofinstagram #illustrationsketch #shortstories #poetryislove #watercolorpainting #amwriting #histoire #watercolorillustration #storytelling #writinglife #urbanjungleweek2019 #plantdecor #watercolordrawing

The seven stories in Simple Recipes show an imaginative depth and sympathetic wisdom beyond her years. These stories are all about love and loss, told through the intimacies and complications of the family. #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #madelinethien #shortstories

odetoshelfcare. In this debut collection of short stories, Kali Fajardo-Anstine weaves

In this debut collection of short stories, Kali Fajardo-Anstine weaves together an incredible tapestry of Indigenous Chicana women. Set in modern Denver as gentrification morphs the cultural and physical landscape, the characters navigate an unrelenting world through sheer determination and lack of any other alternative. These are stories about displacement and female relationships-- about physical realities that are easily and carelessly destroyed, as well as the deep roots that persist through generations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whether the story features a little girl tasked with co-parenting a bag of sugar for a class project, or a woman recently released from prison, Fajardo-Anstine brings to life complex familial relationships with heartbreaking clarity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the women endure abuse, rejection, and loss, what stands out the most in these narratives is not the challenges themselves, but the way others fail to acknowledge or respond to the characters' suffering. On one level, Sabrina & Corina celebrates the way women persevere to hold together the shards of their broken families. But beyond the portraits of female strength, it tells another timeless story of society's apathy towards violence against women. By writing these stories, Fajardo-Anstine forces ugly truths into the open and gives big voices to those who have been ignored. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This book is truly a cultural gem, capturing the American West and the transformation of Colorado through the lens of its indigenous women. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bookreview #bookstagram #bibliophile #instabook #diverseauthors #bookworm #diversebooks #latinxauthors #shortstories #storytelling #wocauthors #woc #stronglatinas #colorado #denver #gentrification #indigenouswomen #herstory #mustread #fiction #latinxliterature #latinousa #coloradopride #latinxreads #odetoshelfcare #sabrinaandcorina
