Have to confess a certain sadness that your time there is ending.
But, ah: what ripples your visit will have made!

Comment on Further trans-actions by Kathryn Edwards http://rescen.net/blog_richard/2010/01/further-transactions/comment-page-1/#comment-124 Kathryn Edwards Mon, 04 Jan 2010 20:08:32 +0000 http://rescen.net/blog_richard/?p=652#comment-124 Dear Richard and all,

I agree with Chris’s speculation that the conversations must have been rich. And yet I love the visual presentations, too: those clumping bulbs on the ground, each a little universe . . . those fish-in-bowls on the bridge parapet . . . yumtious!

Here in London it’s frosty and cold. Bulletins of Shanghai strangeness are, as always, very welcome.

Kx

Its the shift from showing, offering the bulbs to really offering them – please take one – that I like so much. And not because of the giving of the bulbs in and of itself as the conversations that it must have triggered. Lovely. Thank you.

And how wonderfully airy is that station concourse!

Even T seems mellow in this environment.

Inscrutable.

Comment on Red is an old-fashioned colour by Kathryn Edwards http://rescen.net/blog_richard/2009/11/red-is-an-old-fashioned-colour/comment-page-1/#comment-19 Kathryn Edwards Thu, 26 Nov 2009 20:43:12 +0000 http://rescen.net/blog_richard/?p=296#comment-19 Aah, thank you! Have read this several times today, enjoying it as a rich soundtrack somehow more vivid than a visual image.

Meanwhile, London’s British Library is advertising a lunchtime event entitled ‘Sounds like winter’:

‘December means different things to different people. Chanukah, Eid ul-Adha, the Nativity, Winter Solstice, Yuletide, rutting stags, pantomime and busy shops are just some of the memories evoked by the mere mention of that time of year which means so much to so many. Drawing from the extensive sound collections of the British Library Sound Archive, enjoy lively discussion – and hear – what this seasonal time of year brings, through radio, music, wildlife sounds, spoken word recordings and more.’

How to understand or interpret a place or culture? Your Wei Yingwu poem is an up-to-the-minute account of a stroll on Hampstead Heath, and yet I have no idea what slice of the diversity of life is in yesterday’s glass jar . . .

Comment on The lessons of the chance encounter by Chris Seeley http://rescen.net/blog_richard/2009/11/the-lessons-of-the-chance-encounter/comment-page-1/#comment-17 Chris Seeley Thu, 26 Nov 2009 07:57:47 +0000 http://rescen.net/blog_richard/?p=266#comment-17 This post has a different feel – ah! contact at last… I felt a frisson of something starting when I read this one – the stick, the women, the toilet. It made a different kind of sense to me. I wonder what the language women might make of what you have been noticing so far?

Comment on Increase by Kathryn Edwards http://rescen.net/blog_richard/2009/11/increase/comment-page-1/#comment-14 Kathryn Edwards Sat, 21 Nov 2009 13:04:37 +0000 http://rescen.net/blog_richard/?p=257#comment-14 Isn’t this one of the difficulties of life: how to know what we know?

How to live/implement it, espousing congruence? Where are the accessible sources of wisdom and guidance for achieving this? What is the benchmark for Right Living?

I am attracted to Joanna Macy’s proposal that the Great Turning comes from humans’ empathetic and compassionate embrace of fear and anxiety, one’s own and others’, leading to a creative state in the heartmind.
