Sheepstagram: no argument

Posted in Sheep with tags on September 27, 2016 by Potamotrygorgeous Mäh
Flat James came calling us. He is conflict-shy, which is partially a good thing, but we do think he could do with some assertiveness in his butt. So we talked a little about what causes one to understand that a conversation just turned into an argument and how to proceed from there.

We mentioned that in arguing you should be aware of distinguishing tactics from reasons.
‘Because I am bigger Than you’ is not a reason.
That is a tactic, and it is called intimidation.

‘Because you are stupid’ is not a reason.
It is a tactic and it it called insult.

‘Because you usually do it’ wrong’ is not a reason.
That is a tactic, and it is called belittling.

‘Because I love you’ is not a reason.
That is a tactic, and it is evading the issue.

‘Because you are So much better at it’ is not a reason.
That is a tactic, and it is called flattery…

Arguments that use tactics like that are so common in our culture that we don’t notice them any more.

But think about the area of journalism or the academic world.. Would you get away with writing a piece, ending it with ‘it is true because I say so’?

Sheepstagram: no ZOO

Posted in Sheep with tags on September 27, 2016 by Potamotrygorgeous Mäh

It is funny how people tend to read about things, situations, places and stuff when they are not born there. Why is James interested in knowing the background of the Antwerp Zoo while he hasn’t even boated (if that was a verb, meaning being on the water in a boat) the waters in his own hometown? Why do people admire and climb towers in holiday cities and not in their own? Why would you not wanna know all about the place you are born or living in as well? James knows this and looks around in his home town as well. There are at least 23 streets in his town that he has never walked. He wants to walk them all.

Sheepstagram: no succes

Posted in Sheep with tags on September 27, 2016 by Potamotrygorgeous Mäh

Metaphorically thought, succes can be partially considered to be an ice berg. What is hidden under what you might think or claim ‘succes’ is, is dedication, persistence, hard work, discipline, disappointment, failure, sacrifice. Overcoming ALL of that is what WE would say is succes ..

And somehow all of this has nothing to do with a sheep posing in the sun while eating, or holding, a geranium.

Peanutbutter posing. This is by far the best peanut butter we have ever tasted.

Sheepstagram: no sleep

One more story. One more. And then we go and cuddle. And dream about telling stories. Or about cuddling.
