I do. Got a notion to keep this going. Keep this tree of notions growing. We have met the notion and it is us. If we don’t do it, who will? There are many things need writing about. Truth and injustice, life and death and everything else in between. That pretty much covers it.
So, right now I’m serving notion that this is alive and will do some kicking. Let’s celebrate what’s right with the world as we deal with all the things that are not. Otherwise, how will we survive with happiness while being aware that there is some misery.
What is your joy? Love, family, friends? Those are most precious. What do you do to pass the time together and bring a smile to your faces? Music, art, stories? Sharing those experiences is easier now than ever thanks to many genius folks who lived their dreams to bring the world closer together through wonderful technologies that have turned impossibilities into reality. Even when those were close to are not near.
Sounds, words, images, movies, face to face or preserved for time, it’s all there for the taking. And the giving. Anyone can do it. Imagination. That is the limit.
Everything new is old again. And the other way around. The hope of the world is bringing us together with our similar differences. Musical philosopher Billy Joe Shaver said “the one thing in common is we all are different, we’re supposed to be that way“. Makes sense to me. We still all need a place to sleep, to eat and to take care of those we care about. Wherever we are.
Maybe your notion is my notion. We shall see.
