Was diagnosed with IBS a few days back. The meds are making things worse, so I stopped them. Low fodmap diet is helping a lot. Can't figure out how to avoid stress.

I got my driving license yesterday. It was such a dopamine hit to pass the exam. Today, the dopamine crash is hitting even harder. I am fatigued and stressed. Can't get out of bed since morning.

Direction Gurnigel, retour par JaunPass – vendredi 17 mai 2024, un peu plus de 200 km. Départ après 15h00, retour à la maison à 21h30.

En cette veille du week-end de l’Ascension, le temps est annoncé ensoleillé avec nuages. Le weed-end prolongé qui s’annonce est plus mitigé relativement aux prévisions du temps.

Après un dernier zoom terminé après 14h30, il est temps de débrancher et d’envisager une sortie. Encore faut-il envisager une destination contournant les départs en week-end.

L’idée est de rejoindre le col du Gurnigel, situé dans le canton de Berne entre le Lac Noir (Schwarzee) et Thoune (pour faire simple), puis de revenir par le col du Jaun, situé lui entre Zweisimmen et Charmey/Broc.

Pour cette escapade, je monte léger et je file au guidon de CapitaineTempête, ma BMW F900R couleur BlackStorm d’où son surnom.

CapitaineTempête. CapitaineTempête – le destrier du jour – au sommet du Gurnigel

Si le temps reste sec et partiellement ensoleillé, le vent souffle et l’air sera frais au somment du Gurnigel.

L’arrivée au Gurnigel L’arrivée au Gurnigel par le Lac Noir (Schwarzee)

A l’arrivée au Gurnigel, je rejoins le premier parking public en contrebas pour admirer la vue sur la route que je viens d’emprunter.

Lac de Thoune et les Alpes Vue sur le lac de Thoune et les Alpes

Le sommet du col du Gurnigel s’étire sur une crête, un peu comme le col du Grimsel. Il est possible d’admirer le lac de Thoune et les Alpes qui l’entourent. En ce vendredi, c’est bien dégagé. Un banc permet d’admirer le spectacle.

Admire le panorama Le banc permet une vue élargie sur le massif montagneux du Gurnigel également.

Pour le retour, il n’y a pas de raison de faire court. Je redescends donc du côté de Thoune pour prendre la direction de Zweisimmen. A Boltigen, flèche à droite, j’emprunte le col du Jaun par son versant bernois pour rejoindre Charmey, Bulle et la maison.

Col du Jaun, côté bernois Vue près du sommet du Jaunpass, côté bernois. Il fait encore jour. La lumière change.

A 19h15, il fait encore jour lorsque j’arrive au sommet du Jaunpass avant de basculer ensuite sur Charmey où je ferai halte pour manger avant de rentrer à la maison, toujours accompagné par la lumière du jour finissant.

The way I’m getting over it lmao. And by it, lets just say. Well.

Schitzopost intro aside, I hit a pretty big milestone today that my therapist will be happy to hear about, at least as far as a therapist can get happy for something like this. I do have to be somewhat conscious about what I write, as people I write about may read this sometime in the future. Oh well, time to get ready for SkyZone for the first time tomorrow (today)! I can’t wait.

What can you learn from a frog in a well?

There’s a fable. It’s a rambling mess featuring a hypocritical turtle that’s better said in one sentence (“you don’t know what you don’t know”).

At the end of this post, I’ll tell a better fable.


My life improved when I decided to expect nothing in return.

  • You’ll pour your soul into a work, and nobody will appreciate the details.
  • You’ll tell a dozen people you love them, and none will care.
  • You’ll post a joke, and nobody will like it.

Get used to it: you’ll die, and the universe will forget you.

But it’s okay. Yell into the void. Shine a little brighter. Spread what you want to see.

Do great things anyway.

Nobody cares, but I believe in you.

(Plus, then it’s nice when something does happen.)

Hears no thanks for ribbiting

from Talk to Fa

Energy reading is one of the phenomenons I experience when healing people like you who are open and receptive to the work.

Through my intuition and my touch, I receive downloads about your energy, feelings, and the whereabouts of your journey. It is not something I do on purpose. It just happens.

Intuitive Touch, my healing practice, is a somatic and visceral experience. As the receiver, your body is gently wrapped in my hands with love, warmth, and intention.

I intend to hold a safe space for you, literally and metaphorically, generating warming sensations in and onto your body and creating a deep sense of acceptance. This helps you soften your heart, body, and nervous system.

When you allow yourself to relax and come back into your body, you can tap into parts of yourself you’ve neglected for a long time. Now, you can have a conversation with yourself that you’ve been meaning to have.

That is when your energy enters my consciousness. Sometimes, healing someone open and receptive makes me cry because I feel your effort and desire to break out of your hell. I feel your inner child buried deep within you. Other times, I may see a vision of you in my dreams.

Feeling is healing. It’s both the most fundamental and crucial step of our healing journeys. We accept who we are and where we are. And we start heading to the most authentic version of ourselves.

from Telmina's notes

このところずっと絶不調が続いている私の精神をさらに追い詰める話題がありました。

 私が昨日Mastodonのタイムラインを眺めていたところ、恐ろしい内容の記事が視界に入ってきました。

 一昨日に公開されたこの記事、まず言及されている「安楽死マシン」のくだりで、ついに安楽死がここまで身近になってしまったのかということに恐怖を覚えました。

 それどころか、1980年代には既にNPOによる自殺幇助がおこなわれていたこと、尊厳死を認めたスイスに「尊厳死を求めに行く」人が年々増えているということ、さらにはAIによる自殺幇助の仕組みまで作られているということにも触れられています。

 これらが日本でも本格的に導入されてしまったら、間違いなく利用希望者が殺到することでしょう。

 しかも日本の場合、単に「安楽死」を求める人が安楽死マシーンに殺到するだけでなく、それを悪用した、いわば自殺を偽装した他殺も間違いなく増えることでしょう。

 今の日本の政治情勢や社会情勢を見ても、とてもではありませんが将来に希望を持てるようにはなっていません。こうなることがわかっていれば、自分も学生時代に真剣に英語や第二外国語を勉強していたと思いますが、1990年代はバブル崩壊からまだ日が浅かったこともあってか、21世紀の日本がヘルジャパンと呼ぶべき事態に陥るなど想像だに出来ていませんでしたからね…。

 そして、「安楽死マシン」がもし私の目の前に現れようものならば、自分がそれを絶対に使わないという保証はどこにもありません。現に今でさえも自分は生きる希望など失っていますし、将来に渡ってその希望を持てる見込みもありませんから。

 日本でも、「安楽死を認めるべき」という意見に賛成する動きがあります。SNSのタイムラインを眺めていても、安楽死賛成の意見を多く目にします。そういえば、先述の「安楽死マシン」の記事についても、自分がMastodonでその記事に言及していた人は肯定的でした。

 しかし、私は日本に安楽死の制度を導入するのは百年早いと思っています。主たる理由は先述のように「自殺を偽装した他殺が増える」ことへの懸念です。

 今でさえも、体制側に都合の悪い人間が何だかんだ理由をつけられて社会から消されているのですから、安楽死の制度や「安楽死マシン」は、体制側をさらに喜ばせるだけです。

 日本が真に民主主義国家とならないうちは、安楽死制度など導入してはなりませんし、「安楽死マシン」などもってのほかです。

Very close to completing PROJECT OLDBOOK. It wasn't at all mapped out going in. All I had was a very general overarching concept, developing imagery as I went along, consistently surprised by the results as they came about. Despite images at the tail end of the book looking significantly different to the ones at the start, it all works I think, owing primarily to the vessel itself, the actual “old book”, bringing it all together.

Case in point. Rear-page:

from The Travelling Tourist

Gimmelwald is a charming, car-free village in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland, nestled in the Swiss Alps. This hidden gem offers a tranquil escape from the bustle of city life, making it an ideal destination for those seeking peace and natural beauty.

The village is perched on a cliffside, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. With a population of around 130 residents, Gimmelwald maintains a traditional Swiss ambiance, where you can experience authentic alpine culture. The narrow, winding streets are lined with wooden chalets adorned with colorful flowers, adding to the picturesque scenery.

For outdoor enthusiasts, Gimmelwald is a paradise. The area offers numerous hiking trails suitable for all levels, from gentle walks through meadows to challenging climbs up steep slopes. The hike from Gimmelwald to Mürren is particularly popular, providing stunning vistas along the way. During the winter months, the village transforms into a snowy wonderland, perfect for skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing.

Accommodation options in Gimmelwald range from cozy guesthouses to charming mountain lodges, often run by local families. This ensures a warm and welcoming atmosphere, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the local way of life. Dining options are limited but delightful, with a focus on hearty Swiss cuisine, featuring dishes like fondue, raclette, and rösti.

Reaching Gimmelwald involves a scenic journey, typically starting with a train ride to Lauterbrunnen, followed by a short bus ride and a cable car ascent. The effort is well worth it, as the journey itself offers spectacular views of waterfalls, cliffs, and alpine landscapes.

Gimmelwald is an excellent choice for those looking to disconnect and enjoy the tranquility of nature. Whether you're hiking through lush pastures, exploring the nearby villages, or simply relaxing and taking in the views, this alpine village provides a serene and memorable vacation experience.

To reach Gimmelwald from abroad, fly into Zurich or Geneva Airport, then take a train to Interlaken Ost. From Interlaken, transfer to a regional train to Lauterbrunnen, followed by a bus to Stechelberg, and finally a brief cable car ride up to Gimmelwald. Alternatively, you can travel from Lauterbrunnen to Grütschalp by cable car, take a scenic train to Mürren, and then another short cable car ride to Gimmelwald. Purchasing a Swiss Travel Pass can simplify transportation, and it’s advisable to check Swiss Railways (SBB) for current timetables and tickets.

My schedule today has been thrown off kilter through my own fault. Usually I work on my chess games immediately after the morning prayers. Today I listened to a long (ish) discussion after the prayers, putting my chess work two hours later than is normal. Didn't work out too well. I'm SUCH a creature of habit!

Passei de novo dos noventa quilos. Envelheço com altos e baixos simétricos aos que tinha em adolescente. Nessa altura, a bipolaridade estava descontrolada, mas era sempre, consistentemente, magro, magro demais. Agora, a minha cabeça e o meu mundo emocional são estáveis, mas perco e ganho 15 quilos várias vezes por ano.
