To all who have texted, messaged, Dm’d, phoned, listened, cried, laughed, screamed, sat quietly, sent flowers / food / gifts, reached out with a word or picture or smile, who’ve been caring, praying, thinking and loving me…
I just want to say thank you! I truly love and appreciate you all.
One day at a time… Sometimes, just one minute. Each day will bring a new opportunity to reconnect with you all. It’s been a very difficult time for me, indeed. But thank you all for constantly sticking by my side.
In some cultures they can’t harvest, make medicine or cook for others because grief is transferable. They believe that emotions can spread like a cold, and you can “catch” them too. Negative emotions, like pain, fear and sadness, are more contagious than positive ones. Humans are inherently creative, we are not machines. We have a unique way of EXPRESSING, INTERPRETING, & RELATING. If we deny humanity of these abilities, or even worse, do not recognise them in our day to day… then we deny them SIGNIFICANCE, which is a basic human need.
My two tattoos on my hands are;
Meraki & Ataraxia.
Ataraxia is calmness untroubled by mental or emotional disquiet. The highest goal of an Epicurean disciple was Ataraxia—tranquility of mind.
Meraki means “Doing something with a sense of PRIDE and CARE”. Loosely translated as the LABOUR of LOVE we see from certain craftsmen, artists, chefs or creatives in their pieces of work. Common online definition for the word MERAKI is: “The soul, creativity, or love put into something; the essence of yourself that is put into your work”. Without MERAKI there is no meaning left in our work.
