Suddenly, in the middle of the meeting, I had this funny, forkful idea…Ran to grab a handful of forks from the Finnriver Kitchen and found a spot of sunshine on the picnic table to set this up. And felt that current of joy that comes when you convert imagination into action. This was a very, very small act of conversion...but it made me think about the big work of the world these days. Making real the world we imagine— the world where we live the love. #finnriver #forkfulloflove
“A holdfast is a root-like structure that anchors aquatic sessile organisms, such as seaweed...” Photo from a beach walk with friends yesterday. Appreciating that even as we live and farm on the land, we relish and rely on the oceans. Appreciating all of the folks out there working to understand and protect the seas and sea creatures. Gratitude to local poet Holly Hughes for her recent volume of poetry (published by Empty Bowls Press) entitled ‘Holdfast’ which prompted me to notice this one on the shore and feel its poetry. How we hold on to what matters while remaining fluid and responsive to the flow...
