A L O H A From Honolulu!

Some things benefit
from shocks;
they thrive and grow
when exposed to volatility,
randomness, disorder, and
stressors and love adventure,
risk, and uncertainty.
Yet, in spite of the
ubiquity of the phenomenon,
there is no word
for the exact opposite
   of fragile. -

- Let us
call it antifragile.
Antifragility is beyond
resilience or robustness.
The resilient resists shocks
and stays the same;
the antifragile gets better.*

If you get easily bored,
it means that your
BS detector is
functioning properly;

if you forget (some) things,
it means that your mind
knows how to filter;

and if -
you feel sadness,
it means that
you are human.
   Nassim Taleb

Every human being
is an artist,
a freedom being,
called to participate in
transforming and reshaping
the conditions, thinking and
structures that shape and
inform our lives.
Joseph Beuys

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia
