…you’ve focused on how even promising responses to our converging predicaments become mired in the internalized power/coercion dynamics which produced them in the first place.Christian Ford
Orwell said, ‘To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.’
…seeing requires patience and a willingness to question oneself as well as the other. …to say it as you see it, …finding language both poetic and precise enough to do the insight justice.
I think of you as …one who works …diligently in both struggles….Johnnie Moore
…blessed to live on a small island…, perfecting a craft, influenced by nature, living one tide at a time.David Malchman
You endeavour to stay present, to persist, and stumble, and persist some more, and never sell your insights short, and persist still where most would give up; because there is always another fold in an idea…
…you are willing to go the distance to unfold, winding this way and that as the sea and the wind do.Catherine Lupton
i have found in your writing an exploration of the edges of ‘everyday’ thoughts and ideas… an extraordinary ability to ‘come back’ with a description that showed me how there are multiple ways of seeing….
…which has more than once been a matter of resolving my own feeling of being stuck….Jeppe Dyrendom Graugaard
What you are is a teacher.Dian Hamilton
Learning is central:
Teaching and learning in reciprocity
Entering these practices as a way of life.
“We don’t require professions. We require practices. We don’t need to develop philosophies. We need to find ways to live with purpose and meaning. We don’t need to fight what exists. We need to discover ways to exist that bring us fulfillment and wean us off our dependency on destruction.Communion with the Sacred
Let’s work together to build practices, strengthen dialogue, and discover and develop community.
