what’s the bigger picture?


so many ideas
almost too many ideas
so many
heeding
ideas are cheap
they are easy to come by
ten-a-penny
mind is empty; it is no thing. it exists only in its ideas, and these again are no things (gregory bateson)
it’s not the ideas that count
it’s the doing
carrying an idea around in your head
or in a sketch book
or similar
has no significance
in the world
which ideas would have significance?
is that what i’ve been waiting on?
a significant idea?
an idea that will resonate with a community?
an idea that would make sense
not offend

after
contemplation
and
reflection
it’s time to begin
to bring
something
in
to being
i will begin
where least harm can be done
here



where
- one could argue -
harm has already been one
or
- one could argue  -
where
healing has begun
to take root
