Bad Fairy, Good Fairy?

This is not working as I’d hoped, but does explain why we need more visions of a kinder world:

-May the pain you cause my fe rebound thrice or more unto thee, and may you understand why, just before you die.

A malicious laughter tinkled across the canyon, startling Ametis out of a focus that suddenly became embarrasing.  Wheeling around with a sharp curve of a wing, the source of the cackle now revealed itself.  Perhaps taking the form of a peregrine falcon, rather than a starling, would be a good idea right now?  A short pip called the other starlings into formation around Ametis, who was grateful that they had accepted the call of a non-physical.  Ametis, armed with support, heard the laughter became a cough.

-Ahem.  Calling down mortal curses now, are we, good little fairy?

-Protecting my human, you stain on our kind.  And do not refer to me with that term, or I may have to forget myself.

A swirl of dust on the canyon floor began to kick up, just at the source of the sound below.  The air was a better place to call upon Fate, but it was not as safe as being grounded.

-I am no stain, you hypocrite.  I merely encourage the expression of their instincts.

-Encourage the inflicting of pain, you mean.

-That is merely a side effect, and even a beneficial one, over time.  Where would these humans be, without their motivation?

-Not killing each other, for starters, perhaps?  Besides, you have no interest in their well-being, only in watching them suffer.

-Suffer, not suffer, there is no difference.  They will all suffer at some time, and they will all die, having suffered, in any case.  Nothing changes them.

The dust devil on the canyon below became a sand storm, but then an image arose, painted in the ether around Ametis.  Her fe was moving into this plane, again.  The human paid by her fe’s cord-carrier had again put the fe into that place where she was afraid.  If Ametis had had a physical body, that human would have paid dearly, but as it was, all Ametis could do was feel her fe’s fear, pain, and shame.  Feel what her fe was feeling, and promise that this other human, older, stronger, and less fragile, but still mortal, would one day pay for what he was doing to her fe, a mere child of 6.

The sand storm in the canyon below closed in on a small cave.

On that day, the pain will be one, and its name will be one.  And none shall mourn them.  This human, and those who encouraged his evil acts, will understand, and they will regret.

The sand storm finally engulfed the cave, sweeping away all within it.

-Ok, I apologize!  You are…

All of them will regret.  Starting with this one.       “

a proposed Vision on Wondering Wednesdays: for a kinder world…

(Day 1Day 5)

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
(free copies at:…)
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.

    1. Indeed it would, which is why I’m working up Baby Acres/Floors as one suggestion-set for how we could get there, in a few generations. I hope that it will prove helpful, at least in getting others to thing longer term, with practical empathy.

    1. Well, Schingle, the work toward a kinder world, via education for empathetic long term problem solving ways of thinking, is what I word toward, both with my lesson plans, and with Wednesday’s Baby Acres/Floors.
      I think that hope must be joined to constructive action, which I am striving to do as best I can.

      But you are right, positivity is also important, and I think you for your encouragement.

      1. “I think that hope must be joined to constructive action, which I am striving to do as best I can.”

        I think this is what I find so compelling about your work. Hope alone is not enough. Rhetoric, name-calling, blame-shifting, and pandering is also useless. Constructive action is meaningful. I am very pessimistic (ironically, my Hebrew name is Tikvah), but I really appreciate your eye towards constructive action.

        1. Todah Rabah, Tikvah.
          Hope is necessary, but as you point out, far from enough. So I keep rolling my sleeves up, dear Tikvah, with both hope, and determination to do my part to make a difference.
