Thursday Thoughts...

“Walls turned sideways are bridges” 

Angela Davis

So simple. So apt. So true.

I do love a mind that can look at things differently, that can ask questions and see things in new ways.  I had never stopped to think of this - yet how true it is given all that we know of building walls these days?

I also like how there is no hint of tumult, revolt or anger like bringing, tearing or ripping down the wall. Angela Davies simply suggest turning it sideways and it takes on a whole new role and purpose; one which is the entire opposite of its vertical nature.

Just lie it down flat and it allows us to walk towards each other...

    1. Yes Mo! And we are home and maybe things will be a little bit more normal for a bit...go well.

  2. This is so apt. How very much we all need more walking towards each other right now. With our politics here in the UK following the Brexit vote and the unpredictable Trump in the USA, opposition rather than coming together is the pattern. It’s depressing and the future hard to predict... alarmingly so.

    1. I worry too Charlton/ feels like we are all doing a major tug of war and heaving mightily until we split the rope. This is a much better way of looking at the world - and a simple re-alignment. I hope, I hope we find a way to build bridges...
