Person 300 years old

The person I may be talking with might be alive today, might in 300 years be 300 years old, as healthy and vital as I am today, with a much wider panorama all around him or her. Then what our generation of ancestors offers is not advice from an old fellers and women, but perspective on how we got there.

Without promise of fruition

What is hope? Hope is doing the good work, knowing it is important, without promise of results. So that is my work: doing the good work, the important, without promise of fruition.

Machine outcasts?

How it might be if people saw those who had a certain amount of machine in them as outcasts? Or vice versa: those with nanobots would be “smarter” than those without. Would there be wars, massacres, pogroms?

What then is our response today, to head that off? Just do the work with our grandchildren? Be found on that day doing the work. Yet some of the work might just be reaching out as I have been trying to grasp, part of the cloud of witnesses, singing the whale song, writing my letters, poems, stories, aphorisms. Listening to hear.

Hearing a glimpse

What is the hearing equivalent to a glimpse? Sigh, breath, hush, quiet, still, low.

You get lost in the forest

You get lost in the forest
only because you don’t
want to be there
