Where have my words been?
My *news* post has been quiet just as my speaking has, a sudden wind-cold attack took my voice for almost a week. It has been interesting to communicate without it. It made me a better listener. It made me strange to the children I work with. It made my facial expressions and hand gestures very important and deliberate.
I cancelled QiGong class so I could rest and restore. What kind of output and how much I could give was suddenly measurable.
People have been incredibly kind and adaptive. I felt the leanings of need being supported, I came again to the knowing of us all being in this together. We’re sharing the making of our different narratives with varying degrees of awareness of the process. We plan, or don’t, we adapt, or don’t, and we always participate.
