- I think of the lovely Brian Bainbridge, who many of us knew over
years of sharing thoughts, stories and a few glasses of good red wine.
- I think of the wonderful Allison Baensch, who wrote here that she is
going through experiences of cancer and treatment - as are a few other
friends here on the list.
- I think of Eslam and Cynthia and our other Egyptian colleagues who
are emerging and re-emerging with strength, passion and voice.
- And I think of the little miracle Riddley Wilbur McDermott - the
newest to emerge.
I think of those who have come before us, those among us, and those
all shiny new like Riddley who have just joined us.
Smiles and memories for Brian,
Healing love and care for Allison and you others,
Spirit and courage for Eslam and Cynthia and colleagues,
Wonder and discovery for Riddley and his parents...
...or any of the above words each of you would like to choose or
switch around to serve you in these times.
And to also serve you in these times, a good practice from Open Space:
Breathing.....trusting in the unknown....and emergence.
I now re-open the OSLIST Restricted Form Poetry Contest.
Whoever feels so inspired - I invite you to create some poetry with
two guidelines: about Open Space -and- about
trusting in the unknown
Send your poetry directly to me at lisaheft at openingspace.net
Before the end of February 15 - wherever you live.
I will collect them and then show them back to you, dear readers - so
you may indicate your favorites - even though this is not a game of
favorites. It is a gift of riches.
It will, however, tell us who our new Poet Laureate of the OSLIST will
be - someone who will hold the space for poetry space for about the
next six months.
I welcome all your fierce and quiet words,
One of the past OSLIST Poet Laureates - with a deep bow to my fellow
