There is this idea
of collecting
all that is happening around us.
Keep track of this crazy year,
this disrupting year.

Yet still there is beauty,
and happiness,
and music.
Beautiful stories.
I start collecting,
this year.

It will be a book.
I don’t know which road it will take me,
but there will be interesting stuff.
Uncertainty, confusion
and happiness.

We can’t go back to normal.
Normal never was.
We need change.
Let’s go back to better.

We will not go back to normal.
Normal never was.
Our pre-corona existence was not normal
other than we normalised
greed, inequity, exhaustion, depletion,
extraction, disconnection, confusion,
rage, hoarding, hate and lack.
We should not long to return, my friends.
We are being given the opportunity to stich a new garment.
one that fits all of humanity and nature.
_ Sonya Renee Taylor / over grow the system

I’ll keep track.
Of mavericks and makers.
Those who don’t know
but start building towards change.
Those who believe that their dreams can
and will make a difference.

Dare not to know,
a way of progressive insight.
A journey towards better.
