Recently I found a word to described feelings of tension that I get all the time and that word is cognitive dissonance!

While sitting there contemplating the meaning of this old psychology term (newly discovered by me), I decided to stand up! and scribble one of my thoughts on the whiteboard in the hope that at least some of my thoughts, through my words may at least follow and reach the PNG Prime Minister, Hon. Peter O’neil and his delegates to Cuba.

And since I am not yet super-organised administratively I decided to cut this corner short and upload the pic…

  1. For me, the wonderful thing about writing is the meaning that is derived from writting and hence the possibility to treat life as a play rather than a struggle to be endured. I have been lucky to experience pleasure in differnet forms but recently it came in the form of forming the first draft of the English phrase ‘cognitive dissonance into my 2nd language Nali and perhaps one day a fellow Nali speaker can add on… for now from my reading of the book of genesis and my conversation with my dear mother on relatives, this is my tranlation of the English phrase cognitive dissonance to Nali…. ‘irandrokomatne lolohongeh maldrai’
