Inspire it out of them

Whatever we leave for later generations we won’t teach it into them: we’ve got to inspire it out of them. Same as what we have to receive from the generation 300 years ago.

Communion beyond

The picture is communion beyond the common understanding of conversation. Perhaps community, intercourse, in common, flow.

Somehow one story

The generations, 300 years ago, 300 years ahead, and now, are writing the one story, somehow integrated into one. One story.

Sense of the whole

Having saved only 1 person’s letters we yet get a sense of the whole conversation. So too with the 600 year conversation.

hand in hand

Conversation most often is or embeds story—what happened, our pain, our celebration, our dream, the new plan will carry a brighter day. Conversation and story are not the same but they often can be seen walking hand in hand.

Come explore and engender

We are the first fourth generation: an added cohort between householder and decrepit. We have health, freedom, and a long view. We are in the perfect place to cultivate a kinder, sharing, caring humanity.

Might there be a first fifth generation, even a first sixth? Are we the limit? Is this as good as humanity can get?

Come join the exploration, the conversation, the journaling, the meditation/contemplation, the stories, the silence, the imagination, and help us find better ways to engender beloved community.

we story in common

Conversing with the 300-year people is about communion. What we hold in common. We are the animals who can see what we have in common, can story about it.
