Depth elder caring

There is a depth to elder caring beyond simply helping get the right care and asking how we are doing with all this. It is opening to one another. That little door that opens out onto an endless field. What we can do for the grandchildren.

Gibberish as learning tool

So the course: last night I added clowning, speaking in gibberish, and talking with a stranger for 3 minutes about an important question. These really go beyond techniques and exercises, to discovering some new aspects of humanity. Clowning, the freeing mask. Strangers, the safe shovels. Gibberish, a voice for the unvoiced. These are each non-rational nonjudgmental activities.
