The Otherness of Wildness

November 14, 2009 on 1:25 am | In General | No Comments

 A theme on my path to Wildness is Otherness. By this i mean a conversation with the sacred other, that exotic other appearing as the wind or silence, the sun shining on my face, a frog or a hawk, a blade of grass, an entranced dancer,  a mysterious dream image, a poem or a painting. My conversation is not verbal but it is always intimate and a authentic interaction between my conscious self and another being from a world quite distant from our surface lives. The conversation always produces a new perspective. Its like encountering a person from a radically different culture.
