Thank you, Michael. Meeting by the riverside in the ways you describe resonates with my experience and desires. I want to lift up the connections possible for creating culture change that exist throughout extreme states and beyond. Recognizing how you use your deepest, most curious self to meet someone where they are, can become a shared energy to express and co-create riversides. It will become less necessary that your practices in private counter “the mainstream” as we “margins” voice and co-create necessary mainstream change. It’s recognizing the continual flow of inner and outer that enables co-constructing differently. I find personal peace impossible without addressing related external oppression, adversity and abuse of power. When I recognize the constant flow, then I can relish time by the riverside and let it move my choices and energy for addressing systemic harms, joining with others in co-constructing more just and sustainable communities and cultures. I need others to meet by the river and in the river. Thank you for your writing and work.
