Thinking about my sensuous experiences with this earth of ours, the energies that flow & generate life; the "voices" I hear that travel through timelines telling of the past, present & future, telling of the shadowing upon it from the massification of human interactions, inventions, interventions.
"Humans are tuned for relationship...This landscape of shadowed voices, these feathered bodies and antlers and tumbling streams-these breathing shapes are our family, the beings with whom we are engaged, with whom we struggle and suffer and celebrate. For the largest part of our species' existence, humans have negotiated relationships with every aspect of the sensuous surroundings, exchanging possibilities with every flapping form, with each textured surface and shivering entity that we happened to focus upon... Every sound was a voice, every scrape or blunder was a meeting-with Thunder, with Oak, with Dragonfly. And from all of these relationships our collective sensibilities were nourished." page ix (Preface), Spell of The Sensuous by David Abram
