Sharing the particles of your experiences and insights is an active waveform of light, itself.
I mean.. whew.. this is personal mission work, and I think, work that brings many to not just love Dr. Brown’s work, but to engage in learning and in connecting/sharing/empowering, and for some, in training to facilitate based on her research.
From Krista’s Tippet’s “On Being” radio interview with former U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey and interfaith visionary Eboo Patel :
“…DR. EBOO PATEL: …radio host named Norman Corwin…. He’s got this line that I say to a lot of 20-year-olds on campuses:
“Post proofs that brotherhood is not so wild a dream that those who profit by postponing it pretend.”
“… Post that proof. Just do that. It is a religious act, however small it might be. Just post your proof that
is not so wild a dream that these other people think it might be.”
He (almost) Never allows more than about 1-2 photos to be taken at any one time, and almost never in good light. If I point a camera at him, he loves the attention and… . comes right over.
Exasperating to me, but.. whatchagonnaDo?
Last night, however, after keeping me company while I was making other photographs by small off-camera flash, I took my chances, again. This time, he stayed put, did some rolling over, back and forth, and allowed me at least 40 frames! He would start to ignore me, close his eyes, and look like he was just too sleepy to deal with it, but this time, he even responded to my callings and noises and looked right at me again, several times! Very Unusual.
So, Thank you, Chai, for your graciousness; we have some Keepers! <3
