Footprints in the Windsm # 1530–So yesterday I wrote a poem

Footprints in the Windsm # 1530

So yesterday I wrote a poem about the fun life invents for us, paths forking without end for us to try today, and yesterday I found the F. David Peat Website postings about Gentle Action, and this morning I am seeing a correlation between them. It is fun to try our forks, to invent new ones, and that indeed is how we are invited. So this is a call to small groups and gentle action around the edges, realizing that we are nudging more than controlling. We can tell a child No and of course it does not stick, or we can redirect to something else bright and shiny and intriguing, and that does work. And the child’s creativity (what the child was about from the beginning) is not stifled, it is nourished.

Please pass it on.
