I've been spending the last few days setting up the parallel movement, as well as tending to my regular business(es).
It is tempting to double up on content from the parallel movement and Dr. B.
However, I do plan to keep these different.
There's so many content things I want to write about:
My obsession with cabins. So amazing.
The time I met someone at dinner who said I was famous, and my musings on that. "Are you THE Dr Brendan Moloney?", she asked. "I guess so"! :-)
My experience of cancel culture, and what I learnt about the human spirit.
All the home based surveillance products you can buy. Even coffee cups.
The time when I was the only whitey in the middle of Japan enjoying a hot spring.
The time I headed to the North of Norway, and a little town, Alta, gave me a great life lesson.
Maybe I will even share my story, as some stage, on getting hit on by a gay Nazi (100% true) in Norway.
But not today. These are all stories for all you lovely people, and they aren't going to appear on the Parallel Movement site. Indeed, for the Parallel Movement, the plan is to hire a core team of people to run that... It is a humanity project, a passion project, a one for the 'team' project. I simply want people to have alternatives, and to avoid feeling trapped in this sometimes hell hum of a world. You got to be spritely to succeed, and if not spritely, then simply know your options. Speaking of which, I remember dumping a girlfriend when i was younger. I told her that I wanted to keep my options open. Oh cringe! What a terrible thing to say DB. She was remarkably nice about it, it makes me feel so much worse. Anyway, at times, there are going to be parallel things I want to share with you all.
This is one of them. For the Parallel Movement, we are offering a free, virtual 'encouragement' service. The intention is to spread more love and joy, and the concept is super simple. You contact our 'Encouragement Team', with a simple yearning or request or yodel to hear something nice about yourself or to get some kind words. Ping. Straight out of the oven. A timely bunch of kind words arrives in your email with encouragement. It saddens me something I heard Jordan Peterson remark in an interview. Some people (he was actually talking about young men) would never hear a kind word or encouragement when they are growing up. He further remarked that it was a terrible thing. I agree. For my part, for the parallel movement's part, let's not have a world like that. Everyone needs encouragement. Sincere and non-judgmental. Feel free to share and use the Encouragement Service. You can read more about it here. Have a lovely Sunday!
