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.

We ask one another to be friendly

Footprints in the Windsm # 1967

For every right there is an equal and opposite right. Or rather several equal and plaited rights.

There are people maintaining they have all sorts of rights. Yet those rights end at the next guy’s nose. Both parties have rights, and in a country as big as ours, these rights are complexly braided. To pluck out one from the knot, you necessarily pull out several others. Rights are not alone, are ever befriended. We ask one another to be friendly.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1965

Have been thinking that I learned some things this last few days, and most of it has been non consciously received, nor can it be expressed. It will ooze out during the days and weeks ahead. Expect some difference in depths and in ways to greet the world.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1957–Skill-worthy

Footprints in the Windsm # 1957

Dying—the wrestling of dying—
is skill-worthy
and you worthy of that skill
study those who are
at least don’t back away
don’t run
stand in that raging wind
for such a poet
this work is not difficult
it is the hardest could be
—and there are no promises

We are a forward-looking generation our eye on future possibles and aspirations seldom feeling the ground beneath our feet those ancestors and shunning to hear around us those others and species and formations making up our habitat and symphonia.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1955–Push off in your canoe

Footprints in the Windsm # 1955

Push off in your canoe
into waters chasing waters
which have already flowed by
into waters way out ahead
those waters which have yet
to fall as rain
and are way behind
see: the past is ahead
the future is trailing
and even this is good:
this river will turn you

Footprints in the Windsm # 1954–Living off our savings

Footprints in the Windsm # 1954

To explore: Why must we insist on increasing our income, even our competition, in this covid time? We are the richest country on the planet: can we simply choose to live off our savings for a while? The rub is that there are those who do not want to release the stockpiles to help others to live. This is causing the angst.
