Footprints in the Windsm # 1991–Ancestors but plural

Footprints in the Windsm # 1991

Footprints in the Windsm # 1986–If you knew you were divine

Footprints in the Windsm # 1986

If you knew you were divine, had divinity’s message in you, what would you ask people? How would you engage them in conversation?

If I knew I were divine, how would I engage people in conversation? I would ask them questions to help them see their divinity, their creativity. I would ask them how they would change the world if they could. I would ask them what they could do today to help.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1983–Which way the world is going to go

Footprints in the Windsm # 1983

I’ll tell you which way the world is going to go. It’s humans loosely in charge of where the human world will go. Some will be lost and some for a long while. Some will see this way and some will march off that. Some will timidly test the waters. All will muddle. Strong actors will arise and seize others’ lives. All will be in different places and stages of grief. Some will see this; some will say this. Most will not. All are explorers, willing or not. This is the way the world will go.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1982–The one story

Footprints in the Windsm # 1982

If you’re going to tell your grandchildren—or anybody—a story you owe it to them that it be the one. The one that changed how you thought about life, how you lived. That one and the story of your pending death. No other stories are important. These are the meaning. You carry. We pledge to work on these two stories with one another till they sing, till they grow stronger and give life to your grandchildren.

It’s not so much

as we have a chance to wonder
about compassion
empathy

Footprints in the Windsm # 1978–Breezes steering a hot air balloon

Footprints in the Windsm # 1978

Like the breezes affecting a hot air balloon are we in covid-time. We know which way the wind is blowing at ground level and higher; we know the afternoon thermals can lift us if we look for them; we can loosely control altitude (attitude); and we can see what we can see, whether it is what we wanted to see or not.

A lovely metaphor, but what’s it mean? How do we look into the future? To start: from here. What trends do we see, how are the people around us reacting to covid? What are they doing in response? Covid, like all life is likely to be a ratchet: no going back. For instance, we have learned some things about distance working, and will not forget those. Can’t keep us down on the farm. We have learned some things about caring for one another, seeing “their” world a bit clearer, and so “ours.” We have seen some things about our denial, our anger, our unwillingness to work through cabin fever. How will these affect what we do in the after covid times?

Footprints in the Windsm # 1974–Mask grief

Footprints in the Windsm # 1974

It occurred to me that what people are seeing in the masks is a symbol of their own grief. Indeed the country’s leaders went visibly through some stages: denial, bargaining, rushing to get through it, depression. And so there are folks in the stopping place of anger. We could meet them. With what would you be met?

Footprints in the Windsm # 1970–Condor from out of nowhere

Footprints in the Windsm # 1970

But you have a much larger gift you can give, or at least offer. However it will cost you. It will be a condor from out of nowhere sinking its talons into you, carrying you away, over the abyss. You have not found this gift if you do not scream.

This offering is called reflexivity.

This is where you turn the view upon yourself. You eviscerate yourself. Reflection is seeing the event from a distance, from an overview, recounting history and prediction.

Reflexivity is working on and being worked by how this event changes you and you it; and how your client is changed, and changes the event. It is a circle where cause produces an effect, and the effect produces cause. A spiral. You and your client caught up in it together. Caught up in life together.

This is poetry. This is making.

You may think I have been speaking prose with you this afternoon. Yet the language is somehow more. There is a hint of the lyrical. You too can speak and write poetry.
