Stuff I Wonder

What does it feel like to wake up into your skin? Your day? What do you feel first most days? Is it in any way influenced by gratitude, or totally given over to worry, anxiety about your shortness of time? Is this life the one you had in mind as a child? When did this that you do to fill your days and years become your dream? Or is it your nightmare? Or something in between? If so, which parts are closest to your dream and what were you doing with whom and why as this became your dream? Were these relationships good dream mentors for you? How did you get to this day, this place, this vocation? When did your nightmare start and is it something more than the fear of your own cherished dream's loss? What is that one thing that sets you apart, that is your unique character fingerprint? How is your identity unique from all others alive now, or in the past, or in future generations? And, if your uniqueness is no one thing, but a constellation of attributes, characteristics, dreams, fears, wisdom, aspirations, relationships, memories, then how is any one of those unique to you, and if none is, after due consideration, then how are you not part of me and all that is related to you that is also related to others that are less directly related to you, on back to the emergence of flowing memory capacity itself? What do you imagine was that first memory? Do you think it was of longing or belonging, or somehow both, like the contentment waiting within harmonic contention, resolution waving toward our future revolution, still co-arising in noncontentious background? Is contentment intuited as informat-ionic, nonlanguaged syntax of sequentially reasonal logos, to know and love nature's wise resolving resolutions, without, as within? Evolution and Revolution each grow, respectively, Yin- and Yang-temporal resolved, slow and fast-paced momentum optimizing balanced incoming polyphonic form, polyculturing function, with outgoing memory-folded contentment, confluent wonder. Could prime permacultural balance, optimize enculturation's meaning by minimizing future's monoculturally rapacious dissonance from wonder, revolutionary shock, and co-passionate awe?

No wonders the wonders in which wanderers found a continent "like the contentment waiting within harmonic contention".Charming and stunning!
