If it takes her a long time to find her word and you can’t wait any longer, whose disability is it?

Less outcome, more presence: this applies to my life and what I need to do for my sister. Stay. With.

Less outcome, more presence

In dialogue we must do justice to the unique situations of this our meeting, and of this person in front of us, and this person who is us. This is our task. Every meeting. And yet we can never meet this task in full every time. This may be of the biggest things we can never know of conversation. Less outcome, more presence.

Plunge into the greater flow

“It is hard to locate with confidence the intent or significance of individual [conversations] in the wider webs of cultural practice.” Robert Macfarlane, Underland: A Deep Time Journey, p 285. Yet if we are to learn or grow, we must plunge into the attempt. We can pause in this talk of our children’s college and ask how what we are saying fits our times, places and the greater flow of life: what does education at this place do for and to human progress or regress? To life? For conversations 300 years on?

we go out of doors

We go out of doors
the one spirit
lifts, floats on
thermals unseen
we see farther
and so further
we open

Circle around two or three of us for ages

Conversation is spiritual: we must understand that conversations and stories are living breathing spirits. They run through us, covering miles in minutes, and then circle around two or three of us for ages.

Our cognitive landscapes

We are the care-givers of the stories, of the conversations. We give care because the stories and the conversations are our cognitive landscapes.

We can find a way to keep the stories and conversations alive in us, to us and all living things, for all living things.
