Keep Farming

Creation echoes the creator.

Ideas can only mirror the culture from which they are born and their modifications only move them closer or further from the original place. In this way imagining the future can only be understood if you ask yourself – what future? Whose future? From where does this future grow?

And in knowing this it becomes apparent that to imagine alternative futures is not to start from now and project forwards but to root yourself in alternative pasts as well. To grow gardens that have long since been left untended.

And in knowing that we must be ready to do the labour of clearing the land of weeds, of tilling the barren, of fertilising, of restoring.

And in knowing the scope of labour and the time needed for seeds to take root we must refrain from looking at the grass of current presents with lust – for our harvest will be bountiful.
