I have been in a procrastination for two weeks and more now in resistance to getting this post into shape and up. To be perfectly frank, I’m struggling with the idea of composing or posting anything. Mine is not the voice that needs to be heard in those moment. In the spirit of that consideration, here is a list of voices we should all be listening to:
*** NON SEQUITUR NON SEQUITUR NON SEQUITUR NON ***
~ here begins is the post that has been stuck in my sticky brain ~
My Uncle David reached out to me this week as he does a few times a year to pick up old conversational threads. I am delighted each time it happens, finding comfort in the provenance of our mental parity.
We think deeply. We fixate. We commune with plants and process emotion, memory, experience over unusually long stretches of time. Thus we often feel out of time, or out of sync with the pace of living that envelops and consumes.
He wrote me yesterday in what I affectionately refer to as Robinson family code.
Communications with my mother’s siblings are all based on an intuitive understanding of one another’s intellect. Their parents, my Grandpa Al and Grandmother Nancy, created a particular sense of movement through the world.
I’ve mentioned Al in a previous post ~ linked *here*
He and his friends would pick the locks at neighboring universities in the vicinity of Los Angeles and replace coded cards for sports games with their own messages.
I feel a little bit like the family code ties in with this somehow. A bit naturally different. A bit sensitive and rebellious while still wishing to connect with the world at large.
I find myself thinking on the chasms between mind and mind, concept and mind, concept and concept. Dreaming of ways to make those distances shorter without losing meaningful information along the way.
Engagement this week ~
I can feel the wind changing.
Cast love and support out in all available directions. Hold on tight. See you next week.
