We are dots in the universe
forging forward in our own timelines
networked in our feelings, ideas, caring,
adding value in adjacent possibilities
to our human world.
As I read Sarah’s post on Dots and Code, I was reminded of the dots of CLmooc in 2013 [above] which represented, to me, our uniqueness joined in a connected world. Sarah’s post extended the ideas about “hidden” writing in Wendy’s post on code.
Wendy’s poem suggested our code is
“luminous To those that know”
and Sarah asked,
“Is the underlying structure of our thought really dots?”
And to me, I see us as dots in time, always moving forward in our own timelines; dots that spark with our own truths, and when we choose to connect, we spark progress in patterns of new possibilities, illuminating our truths together. By sharing, we include others with what we know, and add to our own, luminous dots.
We connect to learn, to exist, and to be happy. We learners struggle with those who chose a different, degraded path of harm and disinformation. We choose to be the illuminators, adding positive value to the world. Thank you for that.
May the force of our dots better the world!
