Musician, multimedia artist working a day job to care for an ill 96-year old (deceased husband's aunt). Fairly recently widowed (a little over a year), having been with my husband (who also was a musician/composer) for 22 years, I find myself searching for sparks of intelligent insight and creative thought. I am also interested in the concept of "creating mayhem". Creating mayhem, for me, is the act of shaking things up purposefully to rattle the intellect's and psyche's cage, so as to never allow yourself to get comfortable with your truth as it stands in the present moment. For me, art and music are tasked with this, to catapult people from the familiar, to cause the listener/viewer to question constantly, and never permit them to surrender to the drug of the status quo. I am interested in pieces that explore our humanity, as well as pieces that inspire a humanist-style of change.
No. I believe in doing the right thing for its own sake.
Yes. The concepts embodied by a secular view AND humanist process/approach are both compatible with my world view.
Miami, in Perrine/Cutler Bay area.
Searched initially on book clubs in Miami, saw your group's book club and joined that first, then saw your suggestion to click this link, fill out the form and join this meetup. Caring for someone who is ill is time-consuming and thus my time is constricted, but I will try to participate whenever I am able.
Searching for truth and attempting to re-engage with the act of creating mayhem.
This people in this group are fascinating, vital, challenging, and seem deeply invested in a humanist approach to solving problems on this planet. Warning: Interaction with this group may cause brain expansion and a terminal state of alertness.
