“What they call you is one thing. What you answer to is something else.”
– Lucille Clifton
This month’s post is my response to a jumble of phrases in my brain.
The social trajectory I’ve lived through feels like this:
random acts of kindness –> random acts of violence –> organized violence
But that’s only the trajectory of my awareness.
A logic puzzle would look like this:
random acts of kindness –> random acts of violence –> organized violence –> ________________
You aced the test if you filled in “organized kindness.”
I think we need all the organized kindness we can get.
Ditto for conscious acts of art.
With that I plug my friend Anthony’s gorgeous site and online radio show.
