Love in the Time of Climate Change
We're living in some seriously dark times. Yet all around us ~ and inside us ~ the generous, green spark of life continues to bring forth new discoveries, new pleasures, new opportunities to dance our way into what Fleur Robins likes to call further incarnations of ourselves.
In the dark times
Will there be singing?
Yes, there will also be singing
About the dark times.
But, as Fleur's Nana might put it (with no little impatience), "What's all that when it's at home?"
Fleur sums it up in her own way in the upcoming third book of The Fleur Trilogy, "People still managed to survive grief, work hard, find humor, love, and - sometimes - a little meaning amid the static. Even as our species faced the all too real possibility of extinction, babies still got themselves born."
Even creative babies. In Tizita, we see how the crazy quilt of love can manage to fling itself across the heavily eclipsed field of this collective moment ~ where human is set against human, and our species puts at grave risk the shared biosphere upon which we all depend.
Which is why I take particular delight in inviting you to join me at the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles on Saturday, September 23rd, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. as I share with you how Carl Jung, Freddie Mercury, Teddy Afro, the unpredictable spirits of Eros and Mercurius, and a couple of powerful dreams and a life-saving visitation from the mother of us all continue (against all odds) to keep me singing, pouring life into Fleur Robins and her Odd Duck Society's worth of friends.
I'm including more details and a sign-up link below. I'd love to sign your books and hear about how you're finding ways to unearth and voice your own songs during these extraordinary times.
