[West Coast Linda] Heraclitus

by | Mar 21, 2021 | Uncategorized

Philosophy has helped define us. A Fifth Century BC philosopher,
Heraclitus, coined the phrase, “There are no constants but change.”

As he stepped into a fast-moving river, the thought occurred to him, that
the swift current surrounding his foot one moment, was replaced by water
upstream. There was no way to repeat the previous moment.

From time immemorial philosophers have expended energy, carving out axioms
and categories for us to think into and from.

The western mind is the most comfortable with categorical thinking.

We tend to take all the things coming at us, and hold them up against what
we know; and validate them if we can find an existing category to place
them in. Or, discard them if not.

This split-second occurrence goes unnoticed; but it’s part of the cement of
a static reality.

Grandma Linda is a squigily peg in a square hole. Her poetry is aimed at moving the world to love, unity and perfect margaritas. And after years of perfecting the art, she has the skill to paint a better world and make it so.

When she is not serving customers, gazing at rocks, or visiting her grandchildren Linda is writing poetry. And even during all the above activities she has been known to write still.
