expression ( word, dance, text, image, story, music, poetics)
learning, yielding......

Hopes for the blog:
offer up the wild intersectedness of lived experience and engage others in creative, expressive, perhaps irreverant, hopefully playful, and respectful encounters....
enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

Such are the antinomies of this... now

Missing is the most startling gift
like childbirth
you are never the same
after the pain cracks you open and life is staring you right in the face
and everything within you is whispering
there's no love like the love you can't give
such are the antinomies of this now


  1. Thanks for dropping by my site and for you thoughtful comment. Welcome to the blogosphere. I love the premise for this site.

    This is an interesting poem. Had to go to the old dictionary and look up antinomies... hmmmm... how is it that you can't give love to what is missing/missed, or am I missing something here too?

    So glad to have you in this strange new world, this space for new exploration and uncertainties.

    Take care...

  2. Hopper-- strange and new indeed; new explorations and uncertainities are more and more becoming my ongoing way of being in the world....
    what to say about antimomy...
    an early teacher ( MvM) introduced me to this concept and as I came to understand it , it was the notion of irreconcibles that ought not to exist that nevertheless exist, like absent presence, puzzled certainty... like that.... so the sense of a love that cannot be physically\emotionally\actually shared in a here and now context is nevertheless experienced-- ie. lived-- as a terribly intense love, profoundly physical, emotional and actual regardless of whether the material body of the person being loved is contextually present or not... not sure if this helps clarify... but it was a nice revisit
    with deep regard

  3. Hi Harlequin, I also love the premise for this site and will be back regularly for more thoughtful encounters. Until then...

  4. Derliwall--- welcome and thanks for the visit; I look forward to seeing you here. I am excited about the undiscovered country ahead...

  5. Hello, visitors; welcome...please, if there are any suggestions you'd like to make to make it easier to leave comments or if you have any suggestions for improving the look of the blog,feel free.... I am learning in this undiscovered country and am willing to be taught...

  6. Harlequin, I'm glad that I found you. Lots being found lately:)


  7. Mimi --- now there's a sign! so glad you were able to get this comment here.... it gives me hope that I can still do description in a way that makes some kind of agency possible.
    Welcome... keep coming back.
