I wonder how many times I’ve said,
It must be in the thousands by now.
How many times have eyes looked for support
for an out-of-the-box fix towards a solution?
Why does the weight of cultural expectation
shroud and burden every move?
I’m continuing to listen to lectures by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola-Estes, who speaks to the pushing out by society of those who are non-homogenous (my term) in their thoughts, beliefs, and actions. I’ve also seen some recent job-recruiting banners that are encouraging “neurodivergent” job-seekers to apply. Neurodiversity is a new term for me, even though I know only too well what it means. The two are linked. Whether it comes from biological, psychological, and/or social origins doesn’t matter. Whatever works. Let us/them be.
