Great Transitions

Great transitions became part of human experience after we gave up on daily nomad lifestyle, perhaps too bohemian to have ever actually existed out of nutritional nurturing choice As contrasted with necessity of drought, floods, pestilence, famine, chronic wars, climatic absence of healthy peace. Great transitions are choices, positive more than negatively motivated, to move from one habitat in space and/or time to another that feels more promising, worthy of trust, a potential celebration of interactive beauty, holistic balance, resilient health, aesthetically resonant wealth. Great transitions have their inhale stage, before the moving Team appears, which includes hard and soft decisions and indecisions, memories, and rude reminders lacking acquisitive memories about where did all these properties come from, external with their internally complementary feelings of way too much stuff in my cluttered life, Happiness to be bringing warm memories along and sadness to leave so much cold and neglectful waste behind the dumpster And great transitions also have their less famous exhale stage after the moving Team moves on to facilitate another household's preferably Great but sometimes Traumatic Transition. Great transitions in second stage open one box at a time to reload new closets basements attics garages sheds shelves entertainment centers dress drawers treasure chests jewelry boxes safes mailboxes kitchen and bathroom drawers cabinets medicine cabinets CD and DVD racks soundtracks shoe racks pot racks wine racks over the door hat racks behind the door spice racks tool racks and peg boards hangers umbrella stands coat trees bird feeders pantry shelves under the oven drawers armoires desks hutches book cases curtain rods picture hangers linen closets nightstands pillow cases guest beds Great transitions never die they just fade in to what remains of yesterday Sufficient for this new age of rebecoming habituated co-acclimated seeking a healthier climate, a wealthier place for healing uncooperative lack of felt resilience To survive and hopefully thrive into our next Great Transition, inhaling into recycling lungs, exhaling out into greener more resonantly resilient Great Earth Habitat.
