When we seek invulnerability
it comes from our fear
When we are comfortable in our vulnerability
it comes from our love
Which is strength?

Heated

Higher tension, stretching, heating: these are the work of conversing. It has heated is said of the bud on the bough.

Faces of grandchildren

These are the faces of the grandchildren
These the holy
These the beloved

Listen to your grief

Listen to your grief, share your despair, converse over our common vulnerability. It is a way to come together out beyond the short and quick “It’s all abouts.”

A higher tension

There is a tension in eldering between living our life and living for the grandchildren. My own needs vs the good of the human project. When we stay in this tension, they rise to a higher more fruitful tension.
