Joining in the dance of place

Being earthed in place also requires us to embrace paradox.

While we might see an aspect of this place more clearly from the edge, we cannot feel its heartbeat from there.

Likewise, we cannot know what it is like to be in someone else’s shoes and practice empathy if we are only ever off at a safe distance.

It’s a dance of being here and there but not simultaneously.

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
