-Changing our minds is going to be a big change. To use the world well, to be able to stop wasting ​ it and our time in it, we need to relearn our being in it. Skill in living, awareness of belonging to the world, delight in being part of the world, always tends to involve knowing our kinship as animals with animals. (...) One way to stop seeing trees, or rivers, or hills, only as “natural resources” is to class them as fellow beings—kinfolk. I guess I’m trying to subjectify the universe, because look  where objectifying it has gotten us. To subjectify is not necessarily to co-opt, colonize, exploit. Rather, it may involve a great reach outward of the mind and imagination.

-There was a word inside a stone.\\ 
-I tried to pry it clear, \\ 
-mallet and chisel, pick and gad,\\ 
-until the stone was dropping blood,\\ 
-but still I could not hear\\ 
-the word the stone had said.\\ 
- 
-I threw it down beside the road\\ 
-among a thousand stones\\ 
-and as I turned away it cried\\ 
-the word aloud within my ear\\ 
-and the marrow of my bones\\ 
-heard, and replied.\\

 The space of care exists in parallel to the space of “problems” and “solutions”. Underneath the litany of blame and judgement. Beneath social systems and ecosystems. Beneath worldviews and opinions. Deep, deep down in a place where words and worlds are intertwined. Where myths and metaphors grow from the direct experience of entangled relationships. Transferred through a touch, a broken bone, a bedtime story. The space of care exists in parallel to the space of “problems” and “solutions”. Underneath the litany of blame and judgement.
