Gathering 2018

Information

An open Letter from Talisien NEMAS President 2011/2012

 

wormAs the 2012 Gathering settles in to living legend I find myself here, 4 am and sleepless, hoping to file it away as a good job.

The gathering is a monumental undertaking that reflects so many personal aspirations, history and desires. It encompasses people and their direction, impossible to quantify.

Our folk bring to it their creative spirit, subjective energy and emotional investment.

Each cycle the few  entrusted, via democratic mandate, find themselves beholden to this legacy yet removed to an objective path. In opposition? In Faith.  

The mountainous terrain as these forces shape into the whole is tectonic.

All folk claim ownership, some as fiercely as a mother standing over their charge.  It draws out instinctual threat, blood and tears. It drives the subjective.  So precious to our spirit it is blinded to faith as the beast struggles to arises in glittering garb. For garbed she must be. We like her to be sensuous and exciting, comforting and challenging, respectful and welcoming, accommodating and robust, familiar and progressive this Gathering of Souls.

As the pressure from without gains momentum those within spiral down grasping at any projecting handle and wonder if there will be a ledge? Is it a ledge for a flying leap or a handle to gather and draw breath? The abysses is just a step away. Let spin the chaos and whispering discontent, creative spirit and legacy.

Then  comes shining some faith amongst the detritus. This faith is offered in nature. Not approval but faith. Objective.

Faith reminds us to breath. The mother allows growth. We fall into the beast and watch her unfold.

This cycle to my breathless eye, graceful. Creativity was encouraged, subjective energy found outlet, history was respected, effort quantified. The few entrusted took solace in mothers arms. A balm to abrasion.

Left  standing is Adam. Is he the subjective mother or objective child? Perhaps just chaos, whispering discontent. Our Founder.

With Love your objective. 6.15 and done. Good Job to All with faith. Welcome the new Cycle.
