The articulation of experience

Talk about what you have experienced,
are experiencing.
Write about it.
Dance it out.
Draw/paint it out.
Play it out on the musical instrument
of your choice...

Translate the impact of experience
into words,
forms and shapes,

Experience your experience!
Look at it from all sides!
Explore its meanings,
its implications,
its possibilities...

Know what you know--
your reactions/responses,
your fears/hopes/dreams/dreads...

How is that preventing/enabling/allowing/
requiring you
to be alive to the moment of your living?
And doing there what needs to be done there?
And stepping back,
allowing nature to take its course?

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
