A dear friend dropped by for a day. Yet, because she broke her foot the morning before she arrived, the day became a small retreat with us while her foot heals. She is a writer and has been in a most thoughtful mode. Yesterday she asked out of the blue: "If you could hear audibly SPIRIT speak, what do you wish SPIRIT would say to you?" I said, you first. She said "Be not afraid". Then I said that I would like SPIRIT to say to me: "LISTEN and I will show you the way."
What about you?
Maybe this could be a small beginning as we show our writing to one another and ask questions about things deep and matters less serious or even entertaining?
Another idea I'd love to discuss with you is the impact of metaphor on cross-cultural dialogue and literature.
