Today's word for writing is "touch."
On pathways to collective flourishing, how should we touch?
In as much touch is a language, what does yours communicate?
What does the welcome touch of another do to/for you?
What are our good and terrible cultural practices/norms around touch?
When is touch an act of entitlement or violence?
When is lack of a touch an act of violence or neglect?
Under what conditions does touch have healing potential?
What are some of the sacred ways people use touch in community?
Reflect. Meditate. Pay attention. Feel.
Then, write three lines of poetry.
May it be a prayer, a confession, an observation, a longing, a release, or a sensation - whatever is needing your tending today.
Collective contributions will remain open until tomorrow morning. Come back to view previous days contributions anytime here.
