My friend Marc Choyt, The Circle Manifesto blog, recently posted a question to my first Varieties of Resilience post, The Resiliency of a Victim, asking what the keystone of my own wild resiliency is. You can read my response here, in the comments section following Marc’s.
Marc’s question to me however leads me to reciprocate (“Resiprosity is the Co-Creative Principle of Life!” is the 11th of the Wild Resiliency Assertions, after all.) I invite Marc and any who may stumble upon this post, with a sense of resonance, to speak to what ‘wild resiliency’ evokes within you, and where or how that anchors itself in your life: How is it ‘Keystone’ in your living?
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal
of your body
love what it loves.”
