People hives

People are about hives
meeting makes human
words are about handling
stemming from our root
to embrace to caress

Seen these films?

There are few if any films of communities of people. Our film heroes are concentrated on individuals. What if?

Yawning truth

Here’s a picture that to me feels true: I yawn to get oxygen or some similar element into my system. I sleep to do the same: yawning is a desire it may be for oxygen.

Wind with us

Wind is one thing we are likely yet to have with us. And waves. Probably light. These are bubbles to keep and stretch our conversings.

Even this flow of music

Do you hear the trickle?

Here is what I have to say in the witness of my fellow grandchildren:

Do you hear the trickle? Like the wind you do not notice till you notice, once I heard it I heard it beneath and flowing through many things. It is the flowing stream of the ancients, the grandchildren, we ancestors forgotten, to be forgotten, and those not yet known—who will soon also be forgotten.

This stream now I experience as an underground river, a torrent, watering the lives of all who walk the ground.

You, grandchild, will be, are, and were those walking and with the same kick you are also part of the great river.

So all you taste and touch takes on a new cast in this light: all is everlasting and what you—you little spray—do and say and learn makes a difference in the life of those living in this stream.

We do communicate with those in the stream with us—ahead, behind, beside, above, below. We are in conversation with all of us, often without words, silent as the trickle, ongoing.

This is the task impossible I have set myself—to unearth this conversation, community, and communion of the grandchildren, to consciously jump into the stream, and splash around. To make fun. Together.

Now I’d like to hear what you hear:

When two infinities meet?

Footprints in the Windsm # 2034

What happens when two infinities meet?
I don’t know but witness it
Every time two humans meet

Inexperienced Martians Chlorophyll

Black, brown, yellow, pale, and green we are: for the last, am I including inexperienced, or Martians, or those with chlorophyll in their skin?

skin tendons blood

Minerals—bones and hard shells—are like people. Organics—skin, tendons, muscles, blood—are like conversations.

Which lasts?
Which reaches?
Which sings?
