The Well Spring Manifest in Many Formes

A word is not the same with one writer as with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket.

- Charles Péguy (1873–1914)

Dwell Well my Friend

The Well Spring Manifest in Many Formes

Inspired by Charles Péguy (1873–1914)’s quote, “A word is not the same with one writer as with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket”. The titled responsion is…

Wherever your inspirations lies makes sure you tell the truth! This truism of sorts contains the mustard seed of untruth next to the desired outcomes all great writers must face, ultimately that is the self. For me, is the watch word to something Platonic. How about you?

Different Generation, Different Meaning

Inspired by B. F. Skinner (1904–1990)’s quote, “If you’re old, don’t try to change yourself, change your environment.”. The titled responsion is…

Acknowledging the mismatch between B.F. Skinner’s “environment”, and the Environmental ecosystem that sustains all living life on this planet is a shift in paradigms and paradises. No longer is nature part of the debate, we must nurture nature to the full extent of sustainability and living a life worth living.

Dwelling as a Verb

Inspired by Rachel Carson (1907–1964)’s quote, “Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.”. The titled responsion is…

Dwelling shouldn’t be a container or a home, dwelling should be a verb, a lifestyle and a relationship with the planet. Together we will sustain and thrive.

Spoken like a Sage

Inspired by Stephen Hawking (1942–2018)’s quote, We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.. The titled responsion is Spoken like a Sage”. What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

Holding that mirror up to ourselves, as a collective, we can imaging a hegemony (dominant culture or God) as The Malignant Deceiver, conceived by humanity. To dwell well in a state of Eudaimonic homeostasis, we must face our fears and change our ideal of the ideal then make the necessary changes. What is your ideal and how do you see we can get there?
