Footprints in the Windsm # 1932–Waging an heroic embrace

Footprints in the Windsm # 1932

She waged an heroic battle against her disease, we say. Why give disease that much power? Can we find some stories to tell, some conversations we need with which to embrace one another?

Footprints in the Windsm # 1931–wrinkles and wonder

Footprints in the Windsm # 1931

The call of the elder may just be to live life as it comes to us, thinking in our every day of the later and earlier ones and our responsibility to them, knowing our own failures and successes are all part of the wrinkles of life, of what gives the wonder to it.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1930–Bringing us a chuckle

Footprints in the Windsm # 1930

Inseparable threads entangled
Weft: eldering is about gratitude, despair,
being turned, going forth:
entwined we are a green thread,
a red, a brown, yellow, blue, ochre
Warp: loving, conversing always!
story, spiritual discipline:
threads, gossamer and brilliant
So what about these others:
neither warp nor woof
angling across, bringing us a chuckle?

Footprints in the Windsm # 1926–Frogbots

Footprints in the Windsm # 1926

We had thought the machines might take over our world, our minds. Recent news of robots made of living cells (frogbots/xenobots) and living concrete made from bacteria, suggest something other: life might take over machines. Or some other permutation you won’t think of while pondering this.

Then ponder further: in 300 years our grandchildren will be living in such a world. How can what stories you tell this day, what you write or think deeply about, be of help to those grandchildren living in such a world?

Footprints in the Windsm # 1917–My sister hugged my daughter in law

Footprints in the Windsm # 1917

My sister hugged my daughter in law
On Thanksgiving evening
My daughter in law’s mother is dying
Losing energy, losing memory
Slipping away, surely, over too few months
Her father too is sliding into a long good-bye
So my sister sat down next to my daughter in law
And God hugged my daughter in law helplessly

Footprints in the Windsm # 1915–Dollop of randomness

Footprints in the Windsm # 1915

Story may be a probabilistic fractal: where stories are applied with a dollop of randomness in each succeeding generation so that humanicity develops meaning.

So we cannot, ought not, seek to bestow our truth on the generations. Better we can ask them to develop their own. Give them a recipe to make recipes. Maybe they will pass along an even more fundamental recipe creation recipe.

What adds especial interest to this flow is the additional feedback loops that become possible as we find ways to extend lives: imagine an elder at 120 hearing a new truth from elders at 80 and 110, and together they bring forth an entirely new generation of truth.

Humanicity is the quality of being human: the silver thread running through us all: the still small song heard across the valleys and the generations. Humanity is the eternal mid-point: the egg and the poult: the past and the potential: the endless dusty road and the breathtaking vistas.
