Especially in This Winter We Must Remember Who We Are

It is what we must do each day, inch out on the ice with our hands together for support. It is fascism that attempts to give us the security by making us safe from others. Security is always an illusion, a lie. Only hands stretched out and holding will make the intolerable uncertainty of the world into the gift of community.

….Remember you are this universe and this
universe is you.
Remember all is in motion, is growing, is you.
Remember language comes from this.
Remember the dance language is, that life is.
Remember.

From Joy Harjo’s “Remember” From Stony Soil Vermont
