The Shepherd and the Knucklehead

 

..the bard | the priest | the poet | the storyteller | and the questions themselves...

We all have musings... questions about stuff that really matters. There are questions that call us into the presence of things... and we wonder... these are the ones we sit with. We invite the bard, the poet, the artist, the storyteller to give us first entry into the questions... then we sit in circle withour stories, curiosity, peeling the layers off. Pubs and Coffeehouses feel unpretentious, inhabitable, places to be... become. We invite you to come with intentional presence; playful... with imagination... holding space with us for the questions that unfold us. Real people, stellar pint, great pub grub... and the chance to live the questions. Welcome to the art and practice of good conversation. Check your opinions at the door, please....and invite someone who sees, feels and thinks differently than you, that's where the learning is.

.."have patience with everything that is not solved in your heart

and try to love the questions themselves...

Do not look for the answers, which cannot be given to you now,

because you could not live them. And the point is to live everything.

Live the questions now. Perhaps, some distant day, you will gradually,

without even noticing it, live your way into the answer."


Rainer Maria Rilke | our patron saint

    So sorry everyone; I was planning to come then felt it was more important to hang out with myself. I missed you and will see you next time.

    I waited till the last day, but I haven't been able to get rid of a bug I've been fighting for a week, so I'll have to pass on the meeting this evening. Will have to catch up with you all the next time. Enjoy a lively conversation.
