CreativeMornings - 🏔 The wilderness we long for

May 26, 2022
We have no words for the heartbreak pouring out of Uvalde. And Buffalo, Laguna Beach, Sunset Park, and countless other places. In times like these, we turn to the wisdom of our community. Our incoming CM/Buffalo host Naila Ansari blesses us with her words, which you can listen to

“It is happening now! Not 50 years ago, but now. You are killing us, but you could never kill our spirit. Even within evil, our joy will flourish beyond the skies. When tragedy pierces our communities it is the pain that lingers in hopes of change that is needed now, as we hold our community together with love.”  

— 🧡 With love and solidarity, CMHQ

June's Theme is Wilderness


We travel to the edges of our known world — to wander, to lose ourselves, to commune with the wilderness. Dappled light dripping in through the forest canopy, insects buzzing as feet squelch through wetlands, inhaling the hot dry air and endless skies of desert, we long for this. Some of us seek enchantment and estrangement here. Some of us call it home.

We do not exist apart or separate from the wild. In her meditation on trees, poet Grace Paley writes, “we are like any greengrowing machinery / riding the daylight route / into darkness.” The wilderness lives within all of us, the rhythms of our bodies tethering us to the natural world.

What is the wilderness that calls you home? Where do you go to wander? How do you honor what is wild and unruly inside of you?

Our Chattanooga chapter chose this month’s exploration of Wilderness and Hollie Chastain illustrated the theme.
