life is very rich when you have 3 separate visitors in one day who all make you laugh and think about life from different angles. speaking about when the same word means different things to different people set me off wondering about how confusing i must be sometimes. (only sometimes? 😉 ha!) i know i have thought through things based on my own life, a life lived in “interesting times”  and informed by my easy connection with others who have also lived through unusual, even bizarre experiences,  but i will still use a mainstream term quite blithely…

so yesterday’s lightbulb moment was realising i say

FEMINIST

when i mean

PERMACULTURE ACTIVIST FOR THE NURTURING OF A HOLISTICALLY RESPECTFUL GLOBAL COMMUNITY

– you knew i meant that, right?!!!

admit it, singing bird, NO ONE thought that! it requires having read starhawk’s fiction and thought through permaculture of society, not just gardening; having a willingness to respect the broken and work with things as they really are, not how we would like them to be, while being a relentless optimist. also loving to laugh, enjoying creativity and celebrating positivity and finding delight in the small things…being a singing bird… AND a green tree…
