"We can know more than we can tell"


It is ... the reinstatement of the vague and inarticulate to its proper place in our mental life which I am so anxious to press on the attention-

William James, Principals of Psychology


It isn't the recognizable feelings that make so much difference. It is sensing the edge, the unclear, what you don't recognize, but it is there... it has its own peculiar quality, implicity, it is complex, it has in it everything that relates to that problem, but not in a way you can say.

- Eugene Gendlin


Words are sacred.

If you get the right ones

In the right order

You can nudge the world a little.

Adapted from Tom Stoppard by Ria Baeck – Collective Presencing


The story’s all there, but we know
that the story, the real story
is inarticulate.

The spaces in between.

You can hold what can’t be said.
The mystery of being alive;
a basket of words that feels inevitable.
A counter spell.

This is what we all need to walk around with.

-taken from an interview with Marie Howe
