A Thread of History: Teahouse Poems to Nurture the Past and Rewild the Spirit
I Remember (Je me souviens)
September 16, 2021
- In this monthly episode, I recount my recent discovery of ''ambience videos'' and about our shared desire to experience the past as a ''distant home'', as something which, ultimately, allows us to touch the eternal within our souls
- I further explore the cartesian, rational mindset which informs every aspect of our Western way of life. How does our denial of the past affect us? How does it shape our daily lives?
- Our yearning for a connection to the past allows us to understand and experience more fully the emotional and physical legacy our ancestors left us, the present and the future they dreamed up for us. I invite you to ''time travel'' with me by sharing a cherished piece of my own personal history and my special way of honouring that memory.
