The Pioneering Spirit

from Architect's Brother
by Robert & Shana Parkeharrison

i’m thinking how the creative urge lives best on the edges of the river familiar
away from the slow waters of the tried and tested
closer to the rocks
i’m thinking how this urge is what forms the river in the first place
applying pressure to the horizon; to the future
carving its name in the rock

Very cool.

The pointy part of the stick is the business end. We figured that out hundreds of thousands of years ago.

Embracing curiosity and trying new things led to discovery while adhering to tradition, rigidity & routine supposedly neutralized fear...it doesn't but many believe it works.

We can see both of these elements alive and well in the political process.

Donn: the political process is a dead thing that keeps walking by dote of the huge injections of cash and death.

Tom: keep thinking... ;]

i'm thinking i feel a resonance with each word in this piece. wonderful how you do this, allowing simple words to carry the load.

Speechless and green with envy. Wishing I could articulate this well.
