Abstract:
Various ponds alive can be elucidated in five points as follows. [1] ―Ponds‖ can best be characterized as so many ―circles‖ whose centers are everywhere, and whose circumferences nowhere. Such circles are never at rest but ever continuing to grow out and out, rounding and rounding things that emerge in life. These circles are ponds to nurture us to grow; without them we cannot even survive the day.
These ponds and circles actually exist fivefold way, among so many ways. They are my daily ongoing, my living, my cultures, interculture, and storytelling, and the list goes on; each describes a circle, a pond, and a world. Obviously, these circle-ponds are my self interacting with my world to inter-dance our lifeworld.
Here at the ponds, I am a tiny dragonfly dotting my tail without dotting it fivefold onto the ponds, making ripples of expanding circles inter-mingling and inter-vanishing, only again to dot as rain drops to form many new fascinating ripples of small circles, centers-everywhere, edges-nowhere.
[2] Let us put this situation another way. This lifeworld has so staggeringly many grains of sand, in each of which I see a world, so zillions of sand-grains show zillions of different worlds, each expanding as a pond-circle with center-everywhere, edge-nowhere. All this makes a fabulous world of life, all thanks to me and to my inter-dancing with and within the circular ponds!
