353. Tío Yim: How Addictions Disrupt One’s Living Potential
Discussing a perhaps less talked about perspective on the documentary Tío Yim (Uncle Yim) about the life of teacher, community leader, singer/songwriter and activist Jaime Martínez Luna, in Oaxaca México, whose life and words inspired many to embrace a sense of living in community and respecting the land that we live in… but, neglected the effects that a bohemian lifestyle brings.
Embodying the saying ‘Light of the streets, darkness of the home’ (Faro de la calle, oscuridad de su casa) Jaime’s life is a cautionary tale on how certain ‘lifestyles’ and addictions may cut people’s potential short even if they had it all in themselves to be an example of what it means to create a positive impact in this world.
*Editing: it’s not a 4 gallon container of mezcal that I say in the recording, it’s a 4 liter container, around one gallon 🙂
