Only without all the bullcrap.. These people truly sound like genius…I’m afraid to offend this ground I walk on…what an honor to be on it then.. Robert Sardello on December 21, 2017 at 8:35 am Hi Cathy, Yes, Francis is so very close to the In-Dios imagination. The In-Dios, it is the genius of simplicity, sensation, soul sensing. It is good you are sensitive to how you walk with earth. Thanks. Patricia Mora on December 21, 2017 at 12:55 pm Perhaps the real “genius” would be to see the value in both and not disparage either. But the easy way to go is the way of bifurcation – the way of yearning “for this not that”. It’s akin to yearning to be a guru rather than a true teacher. It’s hard to take the complex path – and not cave into wanting a cadre of sycophants. Harriet Saunby on December 23, 2017 at 8:04 pm The poem made me think of many memories and thoughts but Andy Goldsworthy’s images of his environmental art particularly came to mind. I wish I could paste one here for you, but thanks for sharing the poem. Robert Sardello on January 16, 2018 at 7:18 am Thank you, Harriet. Yes, Goldsworthy’s are is spectacular — and suggests, forcefully, a way of both tending nature and providing a meditative act within nature, about nature. I will post some of his work in one of the blogs.
