Entry points

By Carolyn Nesbitt-Larking

I’ve been thinking about entry points the last few days. Not merely getting from point A to B, but the space we allow ourselves and others to engage in conversation.

It seems to me the hardest task ahead of us is scaling back the entry point so that thoughtful conversation, discussion, even disagreement can take place. But the rhetoric swirling around us, not unlike the fictional Peanuts character Pig-Pen, has an odorous stench of particulate matter sticking to all of us.

We need to find new paths of discourse, new ways of expanding collective entry points. Not just for ourselves, but for those whose voices are lost in the stench.
