Reminders are useful. Re-Mind. Like reconsidering.
This quilt, from way back. For my son. Still here, he sleeps under it often, when he visits. I am caught in many thoughts today, mostly about Telling. Sharing what moves through me. More aware of how belief colors what we think we know. How often I use those words, I believe, while explaining what moves through me. I remember Mom saying things like "put yourself in their shoes." Or "everyone thinks(believes) they are right". Sometime I forget that.
I tried hard yesterday, to consider truth. Not really feeling there is any one thing. Concluding that the time taken to sit and share what moves through us, in detail, would yield the closest thing to it. How this might soften the edge of belief. Conversation. Not mud slinging.
I sense this election was a kind of gift. I learned a lot. I learned that a lot of people I know, and love even, feel differently than I do. I learned that I didn't know that. And I think I want to know more about what moves through them.
I cried enough.
Ok. Let's do this.
