Veronica is my nefarious Tarot reading twin. At night she slinks through the streets under the cover of darkness, hunting for young, unsuspecting man-meat. By daylight she naps, writes filth and eats bon bons. But on Fridays, she reads Tarot – for you, right here…
Diversity is the new buzz word on everybody’s lips these days.
As in “financial planners recommend investment diversification for economic growth” or “the new multiplex will foster community, diversity and culture”
Like engagement, self esteem, transparency and wellness before it, diversity won’t be a hot little number forever. So let’s dissect it while we can.
You can always identify what a society lacks by the words it overuses. People are the same.
Have you ever met someone who blabbered on and on about how open and transparent they were? “I’m basically an open book. What you see is what you get,” blah blah blah.
And then you find out they have a secret, sordid life of money laundering, cocaine parties and eating at McDonald’s.
So our mainstream society doesn’t give a shit about diversity, even though it never stops talking about it.
And I get it. It’s way more fun to talk about something than to actually practice it.
Just ask all those people who list yoga as a hobby but haven’t actually been to a class since 2009.
So tell me….what do you like to talk non-stop about but don’t actually do?
