Sometimes, it’s easy to trivialize just how good we have it here in the west, because things aren’t “Perfect”, and indeed some of our laws are extremely messed up, and in serious need of major reforms....But at least we are not arresting 230 “Boys and girls” for the GRAVE crimes of “drinking and dancing”
Yes, seriously.... There are people in Tehran who were actually arrested for this as, “drinking alcohol and mixed parties of unrelated men and women are illegal and considered a sin under Islamic law in Iran” This is their law...
That having a few drinks and hanging out with people outside of your family is considered against the “law” in any country is extremely baffling, and somewhat worrying...
It is troubling that people anywhere in the world are being arrested because they simply want to have a few drinks, and dance a bit with people who are not from their family. What a SIN!
We must be vigilant and make sure these “laws” and customs are never able to gain traction in any other regions of the world. Arresting people for drinking somehow, that just doesn’t seem to fit in with the spirit of Christmas, does it?
Thankfully, these are not our laws or customs. Cause Christmas and new years are just around the corner. And alcohol and partying with people outside of your family are definite MUSTS! :P
Just a little tidbit of ridiculousness for you to enjoy! Also, here’s a few small paintings I did today. I really rather like the dark purple and silver piece. I’m going to try and replicate and enhance it’s design either onto a canvas, or larger sheet of paper....We’ll see. Enjoy Them!
I hope you all had a great week and are fully prepared for Christmas, wine and all! It’s now only a few days away, unreal.
I hope you all get absolutely plastered, just because you can!
Happy Friday everyone, Enjoy the holidays.
Sincerely, Bret Frick.
