Infirm purposive light

Reading in Bill Thomas’s In the Arms of Elders, I was struck by his observation that the most infirm among us teach us the most important thing: community. They teach us caring.

This is an important leaping off place. There ought to be more, methinks: for one, this is a passive, non-purposive approach. It opens the door for sure. Those who have difficulty walking, talking, and thinking, are yet praying for the rest of us, holding us and all there is in light. How to be purposive in this light?

Free us

Acquisitiveness ensnares, confines. Even in relationships. Curiosity, exploring, playing free us to us.

Elders have a decreasing desire to give advice.
