Line-play

As in the case of lines, you are likely to stop when you are no longer sure you should go further – at the rear edge of the region of uncertainty.*
(Daniel Kahneman)

When man is born, the human race as well as individual, he is thrown out of a situation which was definite, as as definite as the instincts, into a situation which is indefinite, uncertain and open.**
(Erich Fromm)

We’re born into a world of lines.

Some are fine just the way they are: such as gravity and love.

But there are many more we can play and get bendy with: such as talents, purpose and stories.

A blessing to begin a day of playing with lines:

May the games of your belonging be generous enough for
your dreams.^

*From Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking, Fast and Slow;
**From Erich Fromm’s The Art of Loving;
^From John O’Donohue’s Benedictus: For Belonging.
