We occupy your land and people, and we would like to know how to care for the land we have stolen. We need you to extinguish and prevent the fires we have started.

But, let us pause. Can we make further inquiries? Will you do us the kindness of answering even more questions unasked? Our "moving forward" has left much behind. We are shameless and full of shame blameless with blame. We need you to explain more.

To start:

* the shamanic
* the uncanny
* separate realities
* converging realities
* alternative economies
* the words of plants
* the spirits of animals
* the impermanence of humans

(and yes!) the prevention of fires. but - more importantly - the wisdom to extinguish the fire of forward! we obsess a future

and we are thirsty with drought!
