Here's a quote my mom shot my way yesterday:

I AM GOD AND ONE WITH ALL OTHER PARTS OF GOD - I AM EQUAL TO ALL OTHER PARTS OF GOD - I AM ALWAYS PART OF THE PURE BEING OF GOD EVEN THOUGH I PERCEIVE OTHERWISE - ALL MY CHOICES ARE BENEFICIAL TO MY SPIRITUAL GROWTH - ALL CHOICES ARE NEITHER GOOD NOR BAD, THEY ARE SIMPLY EXPERIENCES - MISTAKES GIVE ME WISDOM AND HELP ME TO GROW AND DO NOT NEED TO BE FORGIVEN - I AM ALWAYS CONNECTED TO MY HIGHER SELF EVEN THOUGH I PERCEIVE OTHERWISE - I AM THE PURE BEING OF GOD AND GOD LOVES ME AS ITSELF - I AM A BEING OF LOVE.

~ GLEN RUSSEL

I thought I'd share this in thinking about the part declaring all choices as experiences, not mistakes, and moreover, that mistakes are  beneficial things.  I think this could connect to what I've been focusing on about miscommunication and how it is not only beneficial, but perhaps essential.  I keep thinking more and more about this for my project, but I need some advice and/or brainstorming help. Could I maybe attempt to catalogue moments of miscommunication? Record them? Collect an assortment of various forms of miscommunication - the poem from my previous post, the "fake" word in my tumblr post, various autocorrects, and find a way in which to present them -- maybe even do this as though they are completely "normal"....In other words, create a "life scene" where all texts are only autocorrects, all language involves half-words, all editions of literature are different, containing unique errors...I'm thinking this could make a really awesome presentation in the form of a one act play! I would collect instances of "miscommunication" and then utilize them in the play! Thoughts????

  1. so are you saying that mistakes are not mistakes merely because they are "bad," but they are a disguised sort of miscommunication? This miscommunication could be between either you and society, your intentions and the results, the talker and the listener? I'm just spitting to see if it sparks anything.
