Some photos from Stocznia Gdanska [Gdansk Shipyard]

A week ago, March 6th, I went to Gdansk for the first time in a long time. And I visited the Gdansk Shipyard for the first time in my life. You can now tour the area where Lech Walesa and Anna Walentynowicz worked in the 1970s and set up Solidarnosc following the new Kaiser ShipyardContinue reading “Some photos from Stocznia Gdanska [Gdansk Shipyard]”

Remembering my last week pre-pandemic

It’s been almost a year since all normal activities stopped in Edinburgh because of covid… and I sort of remember the first days when I started cutting out my outings, although I still went out relatively frequently – I went to Tesco once a day to get some fresh vegetables (I remember I was intoContinue reading “Remembering my last week pre-pandemic”

Climbing Mount Komorebi – 3 screenshots

My views have SO DROPPED lately, there’s barely anyone here! So, to start off the month right, I’ll post three screenshots from Mount Komorebi. Precisely three. However, I find them screenshots of high quality, as they gorgeously present the gorgeousness of Mount Komorebi and its snowy environs. I took them while sending the Ito familyContinue reading “Climbing Mount Komorebi – 3 screenshots”

Komercjalizacja harcerstwa

Serce mnie boli, że Dzień Myśli Braterskiej (World Thinking Day, 22 lutego) się skomercjalizował. Widać to dobitnie w newsletterze (który będę nazywać “biuletynem”), który dziś rano wylądował w mojej skrzynce mailowej. Nadawcą jest Składnica Harcerska ZHP 4 Żywioły. W mailu “druhowie” ze Składnicy napisali: Już na horyzoncie Dzień Myśli Braterskiej,to wyjątkowe święto przyjaźni.W taki dzień wartoContinue reading “Komercjalizacja harcerstwa”

Shinrin-yoku a egzotyzacja

Co znaczy shinrin-yoku? Shinrin-yoku (森林浴) z japońskiego tłumaczy się na “leśną kąpiel”. Ma mieć (i z pewnością ma) właściwości lecznicze, praktykuje się ją zarówno indywidualnie, jak i w ramach zorganizowanej “terapii naturą”. (Co ciekawe, artykuł o shinrin-yoku na polskiej Wikipedii jest bardzo dobrej jakości i rozległy, podczas gdy na angielskiej jest o tym tylko wzmiankaContinue reading “Shinrin-yoku a egzotyzacja”

Looking to the rivers

In BluHum, you are encouraged to think oceanically – but, as it was pointed out, when you think of everything as ocean, and of the ocean as everything, then you really lose the sense of what really makes the ocean the ocean – of what defines it. A question popped in my head – wouldContinue reading “Looking to the rivers”

New family! Political murals in Newcrest

The main argument behind my dissertation is that games are empowering through the storytelling opportunities they provide. Tired of reading theory, which felt like spinning round and round in the same circles, I realised that it’s been a while since I told a story I wanted to tell. So I created this family – forContinue reading “New family! Political murals in Newcrest”

Old books, surf magazines, dust

Starting a new subject in a new semester makes a good excuse to go through my parents’ old books… again. “That sounds like a nice activity”, my friend from Finland said, and I told him that sure, as long as you ignore the dust flying all around you. Go through old things on a cloudyContinue reading “Old books, surf magazines, dust”
