I’ve been working/not-working with presence, cultivating and allowing its flow and movement, its ease.
Today I read these words of the poet Nikki Giovanni – “Writers don’t write from experience, although many are hesitant to admit that they don’t. … If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.”
Reflecting on it, I feel the connection between presence and empathy, the way to widen presence in this whirled world.
