‘Table’ – where does the word take you? So many types of tables. An inanimate object, that has many uses, with lots going on in and around it. Once again, a moment to take us somewhere we may not otherwise have ventured into. Some lovely realisations arrived, and it was lovely to hear the stories.
‘Survive’ – a great word that took us all in different directions within the poetry and the discussion; about life, the planet, inanimate objects, viruses, the spirit of humanity, impermanence. A great way to express something about how we see and experience the world.
While finding meaning can have its benefits, creating meaning also comes with some challenges.
Meaning as we know is derived from our lived experience, and as we all experience life differently, finding common meaning, is less likely.
What causes the fog in your life? The cloudiness that prevents you from seeing things as they are. Perhaps a stage of life, such as in later years, when stress is upon you, during treatment, illness or post trauma?
‘Window’ – a great word to reflect on this week. So many ways we use the word window, and quite significant with meaning and application.
Oasis, is the word this week. It took many of us to search out a little more about the nature of an oasis, and brought many insights and took us in different directions. An absolute amazing phenomena, beautiful in its presence, in amongst the harshness of the environment around.
Actually the nature of the stories, showed a lot about ourselves. The way our pets became our pets, what they brought to us and our lives. It became evident that our pets brought us some form of discovery and learning about ourselves and relationships.
What is like in your ‘inside’ world? Sometimes a word like this, can support your own exploration of yourself… This weeks poetry had us follow our own inside feelings in many ways.
‘Joke’ – a word used and expressed in many ways. A nice chance to express differently this week. From telling a joke, to what is considered a joke and the impact and what is hidden behind a joke.
The word ‘spontaneous’ once again brought us to different feelings and memories that inspired some of the prose and poetry this week.
What does it mean in the context of our lives, the way we live, or engage things around us. How does it feel? What does it bring? Does it have value? Does it have risk?
We all agreed there is so much what could be termed as ‘magic’ within what we experience and how we live each day. When you think of the intricacy of the natural world around us, the beauty, the synchronicities, the capacity to renew, grow and change, it’s truly incredible.
In this podcast we share our view on the nature of rules we have come to live by, and the impact of those rules when we come to experience life and engage in things.
