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

    First meeting. Was what I was looking for, a venue for meaningful conversation. The topic of money was very germane as I was starting a new job the next day, and have been long been struggling to resolve the dilemma between earning a livelihood, and remaining independent enough to discover the life most worth living. Some good observations and insights from all who attended.

    after the discussion tonight, and the george carlin video, I thought I'd post this video which I've always found really enlightening about stuff. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GorqroigqM

    Glad to get together and have such a penetrating, pointed discussion about something we all clearly have so many deep-seating feelings and beliefs about. Thanks for sharing what you've shared.

    I'm so sorry to bail! Too much on my plate right now. Sometime 'man plans and God laughs.'

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
