I'll accept notes on my phone, emails to myself, writing in my journal, or formally sitting down at my laptop.

See No Evil, Say No Evil: Why It's Important to Talk about and Face Taboo Topics

I don’t know why, but humans believe that if we don’t talk about something or can’t see something, it doesn’t exist. 
Take England, for example. According to The Guardian writer Alex Andreou (2015), “anti-homeless” spikes were introduced in front of an apartment complex in London in 2014. They were removed thanks to a protest and petition, only to be reintrodu Read more of this blog post »
