Do you see what I see?

Anastasia’s reflections on last night’s radio show

The great potential for healing? The great potential for growth out of adversity? Could Newtown and the various issues related to it, possibly be the tipping point for a sea of change that has pushed its way to the surface in our country and cannot be ignored?

I SEE that the opportunity for this potential is valid and, now, within the realm of the possible; particularly as people of good intention are, now, being drawn together to build unity in the face of loss. Community is one of the gifts of unity. It has happened many before in times of great loss and crisis. The evidence is there for it to happen, if you LOOK, now, once again.

On last night’s Possible Society In Motion Show, I took the next steps forward on behalf of New Horizons and myself to throw our hat in the ring, pledging anew to help our country move forward toward the greatest it can be in the this critical time; a possible society with a potential that does honor to our heritage. The time, evidently, is now for us to step over the threshold into our brave new world. Politicians will not carry us over this threshold; people in unity will.

Listen to my viewpoints, as I introduced them with last night’s show topic, “Why Small “Zones of Peace” Make Sense.” Then, please add your comments to mine here.

I do not always have the words to express, just right, the words of my mind and my heart; the clarity of what I have seen, expanded so precisely by my uncountable experiences, especially being blind and recovering from that ordeal.
The addition of New Horizons radio show and my own, The Anastasia The Storyteller Show, however, is about to expand my ability, more feasibly than ever, to articulate what I have seen .  Please listen in to The Possible Society InMotion Show, weekly, on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m.. And Anastasia The Storyteller, bi-weekly on Tuesday mornings at 11:30 a.m.

If you have benefited from visiting this blog, take the opportunity, especially at this point in time, to listen in to what I will, now, be better able to articulate through spoken words on these two radio shows. And, then join the conversations we are now holding, following the Possible Society In Motion Show that builds on and expands what you have been reading here.
This week’s topic, “Why Small “Zones of Peace” Make Sense” is an important extension of what you have been reading here.

Please hear what I am saying and join in with our conversation. Awe is our destination.

More to come.
Thank you for your kind support.

Back in the saddle again.


Butt -- I hope you missed our last radio show.
Back in the saddle I go,
before I lose my courage.
It was awful! 

Such a comedy of errors, you will never get the chance to hear it, if you didn’t at broadcast time. Lisa, radio show coach, deleted it at her earliest convenience.
But I’ll be back in the saddle, again, this week, hosting the show solo until we are able to get the studio technology management operating smoothly. 
Same time: 6:30 p.m. Same place: on Blog Talk Radio;

Second round of the same topic:
Beyond Polarization: Exploring The Polarization Within
Last week it was just one technical mishap after another, after another.  

Still in all, the humor surfaces, as this show was one to remember. Indeed, a comedy of errors. (I shouldn’t feel bad, one dear friend suggested; “Look what happened on air to ………”  (Just fill in the blank to remember that in-public blooper.)
Beginners luck for our first show was just that, beginners’ luck! So number two, expecting it to go well, turned out to be only a wish. Oh, well, this week I am back in the saddle again.

In the midst of whatever went amiss, our loyal volunteer, co-host, Jim French, was caught out on a limb, hangin’ on for all he could muster for which I admire his fortitude. Still, things did not get better. They only got worse, by the minute until, at last, we were off the air.  (I, actually, never arrived; not even being able to get on my own show last week; unable to connect with the studio!)
Most redeeming, however, was the conference call portion from 7:00 to 8:30 pm, with an inspiring dig-in-deep to our topic; "Exploring the Polarization Within,” as a key component of moving beyond polarization. With very minimal participation, again on that end (most people bailed out, apparently, when the on air portion went awry), we explored a handful of current, politically hot issues, such as gun control, immigration and the Dream Act, abortion and so forth, giving due consideration to what it might mean, if people really -- pause -- and dig into their interior polarizations on these issues.

How might that make a difference in outcomes when citizen votes become important?
In particular, we explored the topic of storytelling as a vehicle for overcoming polarization; storytelling giving us much opportunity for sharing the heartfelt, before the mind takes over an issue. All too quickly, often, making itself manifest in the ceaseless noise of the media, politicians and political protesters.

Although most of our listeners apparently had given up on us, after listening in to our on air snag, what followed in the conference call-in portion of our program was genuinely uplifting.
All in all, our new Possible Society In Motion radio show did survive. And, I will be doing my best this coming Thursday to get us back on track, again. So please y’all come.

And, if the radio show goes amiss, perchance, meet me on the conference call-in portion. We’ve got that portion working fine. It is, almost, guaranteed; New Horizons is guiding our small part of the possible society in motion, as we intended, give or take a tangle, here and there.

And, much gratitude from New Horizons’ Board of Directors and myself, personally, to Jim for the tenacity and the courage to hang in there with  a most challenging on air glitch; under pressure, helping New Horizons  get this new project in motion, “The Possible Society In Motion Show.”
Now, Happy New Year, 2013. Here we go for everybody’s next round of whatevers???
