Same sky, different gravy

East

Like many of us, this post has rather lost its way. Better then to say so, than pretend to be anything more than that: a little bit dazed and confused, unhappy but trying to remain positive. Sitting by the shore having a bit of a think, a bit like this.

I have heard a waterscape described as a void, but one that reflects yourself back at you. Can it really be a void then? I don’t think we are surrounded with voids in nature, rather that we perhaps host them inside ourselves. Does a void ask questions, or does it just exist as something to continuously fill up?

Of course, I don’t know, I’m just asking.

Carl Roger’s self-actualisation involves unconditional positive regard for children. I think it’s important. I also think a 14 year old in a court of law is still a child, albeit a damaged one, even in today’s atmosphere of extreme retribution. If only we could swap retribution for reparation.

And then there’s Carl Jung and his theory of individuation, a more metaphysical approach to integrating the parts of ourselves. There’s no time to consider that at the moment beyond this quote.

“Trust that which gives you meaning and accept it as your guide.”

  1. I like the pictures. I don’t like the unhappy bit… Why?

    • I don’t much like the general tenor of the world at the moment. In the last few weeks I have heard some rancid opinions on race, religion and class and in work life learners are being asked to perform as machines to meet funding criteria. I am planning to drop out one day!!!

  2. Chin up Diva. Sings ‘You are not alone……………’ x

  3. Agree totally with reparation not retribution. Stop treating kids like adults. We are becoming a country of hate.
