Jester's 'Exquisite Corpse' Collaboration
Great to see so many of you participating in the session on Jesters and creative see(k)ing. Copied below is your amazing collaborative discourse that both IS-- and is about-- play, ambiguity, uncertainty, and risk-taking beyond the 'frame.' Jester’s Exquisite Corpse* 5/26/11 (*Note: a forward slash [/] indicates the beginning of a new player’s contribution.) The creative mind, Jung said, plays with the objects it loves. The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct/ the utterings of  a fool who enjoys the moon and the night full of shooting stars that no one will ever see/ the lights of the city,/ brilliant and decayed at the same time/ on two watches, four hands/ that feel as soft as your face,/ as beautiful as a stopped clock/ tick tock/ time and time implies, no-- it is-- passage, passing/ trillium fields/ butterfly brook ripples and moving/ toward something vague, but leaving something specific—that’s all that matters/ “But. Why?”/ “I don’t remember.” But I will say that when the boy put on his wings and jumped down off of the fence he somehow managed to grab the mane of Pegasus/ lays me above you/ and I celebrate your reach to those beyond all of us./ DEADLY NOTIONS SOMETIMES/ create darkness and a sense of shadows/ too long for sighing too dark for seeing/ and yet the light shone brightly and the shadows,/ which came alive and hid from us so that we were alone and looking for comfort./  XXXXXXXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX/ in between the space and silence
