Half way through the X-mas break and my To Do list of nonsense is expanding beyond reason. Turns out, I've only been contemplating my navel. In about a week, my 21-week series on daily quotes will come to an end and I frankly have no clue what I've learned from the process. Partly because I … Continue reading CMN = Contemplating My Navel

Introduction Commodification of devotional artworks diminishes their original meanings. Colonialism and institutional practices have for centuries eroded cultural identity associated to these traditional art forms and diluted their intended meanings.

I had a few other titles in mind for this one, such as: "Damn it, I forgot the earring" or "Oh, right! Humans don't have ears! I almost gave my secret away.
