Post-election. As someone interested in our relationships to space and place I am profoundly disturbed. Not only am I personally wounded by the continued hatred-led division in our country but I am also saddened for the masses that already experience traumatic exclusivity and physical harm. I feel an even greater rupture for all from a place we should all be able to call home. I feel a rupture from my own sense of country and my sense of humanity. I also feel that change is possible if we can retract our thoughts from fear's space and envision a place where humanity is coexisting. Little by little, within our small communities we must continue to work to make this exceed beyond mere vision in order to form realities where places of peace and harmony exist.
