The Present Moment video
is shown on the “Big Screen”
at Healing Circles Langley. This screen is small compared to the Clyde Theatre
who is showing Mad Max at the same time.
There are some similarities,
post apocalyptic chase stories
mine the apocalypse of Parkinson’s
theirs the apocalypse of civilization.
I can only imagine what Max is doing
but this small family is telling the story we live.
Questions from the audience
open the door to what lies beneath the surface
and though a tale of struggle
and unwelcome change
there is a lightness in the telling.
Despite the pain and confusion
underneath is joy that grows
from our joining together
to hold this tale
and recognize how much we share
on the road of our trials,
how important this coming together is
in our journey to completion.
