Taragraphies is an open space and “work in progress” of reflection, opinion, curiosity, and a view from within as a dreamer, activist, and ordinary person who has been involved in social and environmental movements in Thailand and Southeast Asia for over 30 years.
As a dreamer, I believe that life is full of possibilities that are just waiting to be realised, and it is rich with meanings that are just waiting to be understood. There is no such thing as a problem-free life, so deal with it and be happy!
Activists, in my opinion, must accept full personal responsibility for their place in the world and learn to accept and channel their personal political power. It should come as no surprise that it is a bumpy ride with numerous stumbling blocks along the way. The risks should not be used as an excuse to postpone the trip. There is no risk, so there is nothing.
