This is a platform for sharing some of what I do and think. As I build on what I've learned and experienced, I am attempting to form something new, something better, and hopefully something useful to others.
In the midst of conflict and angry voices, I seek wisdom. How can I live a creative and meaningful life when bombarded by short-fused, antagonistic souls that seem to feed on misery? Do I separate? Lash out? Lay down and adjust a flattened existence? None of those appeal to me. I want to be connected, to grow and feed, to transfer what I gather through some kind of output.
This poem by David Whyte is a source of strength and wonder, reminding me of the potential that exists everywhere. I have a lot of soot that smears me, and with some simple acts, I can rinse clean and be better for myself and those near me. Reading and listening are two of those acts, and I share this here so you might benefit as well.
