There was also an irrefutable sadness in his eyes. He spoke in a slow and creaking voice, the voice of hope about to expire. Flame trees, coconut palms, and a ballpoint-blue Atlantic composed the background. None of it seemed beautiful, though. Tyranny is nothing new in Sierra Leone or in the rest of West Africa. The cities of West Africa at night are some of the unsafest places in the world. "You see," my friend the Minister told me, "in the villages of Africa it is perfectly natural to feed at any table and lodge in any hut. "In the poor quarters of Arab North Africa," he continued, "there is much less crime, because Islam provides a social anchor: of education and indoctrination.

Clinical Fact Sheets: Talking to Patients About Sexuality and Sexual Health. (Updated April 2008) Patients may have difficulty talking to health care providers about sexuality and sexual health for many reasons, even when they clearly are sexually active.
Most people are not raised to discuss sexual matters openly, and when sexuality is taught, it is often done in negative terms. As patients move through the stages of life, the dialogue with providers on this topic will evolve; a conversation with a sexually active adolescent should differ significantly from a discussion with a married perimenopausal woman.

Zen. How To Stop Making A Big Deal About Your Problems. Teaches us how to let go.
It’s actually a very important aspect of friendliness, which is that you train again and again in not making things such a big deal. When you have pain in your body, when all sorts of thoughts are going through your mind, you train again and again in acknowledging them openheartedly and open-mindedly, but not making them such a big deal. Generally speaking, the human species does make things a very big deal. Our problems are a big deal for us. So we need to make space for an attitude of honoring things completely and at the same time not making them a big deal. It’s a paradoxical idea, but holding these two attitudes simultaneously is the source of enormous joy: we hold a sense of respect toward all things, along with the ability to let go. Keeping these ideas in balance allows us to feel less crowded and claustrophobic. Absolute Refuge. Brownie's Lament. Agent of Change: An Interview with bell hooks.
