It’s really very simple.

C’est beaucoup plus simple qu’on ne le croit.


For more animal analogies along the lines of the albatross, check out Crime Against Nature, a pretty picture book that upends all traditional ideas about what’s natural or not.


Pour plus d’analogies comme celle-ci avec l’albatros, consultez Le crime contre nature, un joli livre qui bouleverse nos idées traditionnelles de ce qui est naturel.

The book is currently featured on Mr Mondialisation, and I’ll be flying to Belgium in October to present a version of the show in conjunction with a superb performance art piece that will get you singing about nature in general and your nature in particular.

For those of us who are outsiders, we see your profound wisdom here, Gwenn.  Thank you!

Well spoken, btw

Fellow 53 year old freak here …  all I have to say is “A long row to hoe” …
from my great great grandmother native american sex slave, to me,  that I can document.. I pass my wisdom and knowledge down to all that will listen, It is a hard way to think about it, I choose not to forget my history but to learn from it,  learn Why it was, , and who pulled the strings to make it so……..
By doing this,  You will see a pattern develop,  and you will see the elephant in the room…. Thank you Gwenn for your youthful way of getting this concept out there… trail on,  Sister from another mother…

@Lynette: If all the outsiders could come together, we’d be on the inside. smile

@Assenaar67: You have to read some stupid books and see some bad art so that you can understand the good stuff.

@Gala: Our society’s patterns fascinate and frustrate me endlessly. Take care, friend!
