I have had a lot less time lately and I do miss writing. I have some urgent thoughts to download (upload?) then explore further...
Stage setting: I was on the panel for discussion after the Documentary film showing of Minimalism at The Linda last Thursday night (June 16, 2016 - 06-16-16). Interesting, I just noticed the date... I was going to do something great on that date, I guess I did, my first time as a panelist... Anyway... the other panelist was Chad from BioSoil Farm and toward the end the conversation was all about how we need to recycle / throw out things responsibly... then meal worms totally stole the show! =)
It made me realize that just the act of people taking on reducing their stuff has to be IT. It's overwhelming already for any number of reasons... if you add on to that the worry, concern and challenge of responsibly getting rid of all the stuff that needs to go then it's NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN... I believe that until people can clear their space and get a grip on their freedom... taste it, feel it, live it... they can't hope to be model consumers / thrower - awayers.... Does that resonate? In other words the conversation went off track and I do agree that we need to think about where everything ends up in the end... what I think happens though is complete inaction or minimal action without the feeling of success and freedom that comes with creating space by getting things you don't love out of your space! Feel and taste the freedom of space to think and feel without distractions from your stuff... experience that and then you can take on the next step... whatever that ends up being for you.
Next point... perfect lead in if I do say so myself. I've been overwhelmed lately with the idea of finding a perfect "career" for myself. In the process I've noticed the HUGE variety of jobs out there from trashmen to conductors; marine biologists to lunchroom ladies... what's shown up is everyone just needs to truly follow their own passion... that we all compliment each other and everything will be "taken care of" if we are allowed, inspired and supported in doing that... Like Chad the worm farmer... or me the Space Creation Professional... who knew.
Eso es todo por ahora, amigos!
What shall I forgive this day to amuse and delight?
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
