Reena’s Exploration Challenge #96 — Lost and Found

Lost and Found Knee high, defunct and demoralized Struggling to rise above gravity's grip thick ropes attached to anchors tied to my ankles, I stalled as a hot air balloon with a leak trapped in the smog, gasping for oxygen I reached for the hatchet and started chopping right arm muscles screaming with repetitive motion… Continue reading Reena’s Exploration Challenge #96 — Lost and Found

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #95 — acatalepsy

Source: https://www.adventureinyou.com/ I went out and did a little reading and found info at wikipedia (my favorite learning destination). It talks about the philosophy of the Stoics, who believed that truth could be absolutely apprehended, which is katalepsis. There was an “opposing” group called The Academics, who believed this was not true, and called it… Continue reading Reena’s Exploration Challenge #95 — acatalepsy

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #93

Reena is the host of Reena's Exploration Challenge.  Reena asks us to write to the following photo, wherever our creative spirit takes us. This is not a cohesive essay, more stream of consciousness.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #92 –Crossover

For crossover, there are only a couple of things I can think of (aside from the concept of crossing over from life to death.) One is a crossover brassier, where the fabric crosses over and serves to lift and separate to give support. The other is when tying boats up to a dock there is… Continue reading Reena’s Exploration Challenge #92 –Crossover

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #91 — The Relativity of Things

In philosophical daoism, one of Zhuangzi's continuing themes is the relativity of things, which examines, “this and that.” He talks about the definition of terms and how they can limit.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #90 — Compromise

This world as we know it is one big compromise. If it wasn't, life couldn't exist on planet Earth. As I sat here trying to think of the topic, I looked outside at the pear tree in the back yard. The pear tree is alive because of compromise. From the perspective of the tree, it… Continue reading Reena’s Exploration Challenge #90 — Compromise

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #88 — Maa Durga experience

In the middle of last October, I wrote a poem for OctWriPoMo about protection. The following is most of the post and the poem I wrote: Thinking about this briefly, it was clear that there is nothing comparable to the protection outlined in the 23rd Psalm of the Christian Bible.  I use it daily and… Continue reading Reena’s Exploration Challenge #88 — Maa Durga experience
