Left Wing + Right Wing = LIFT
What matters to you about governance? Nearly 100 responses to this question were written down on the wings of this eagle as I dragged them everywhere I could during our nations various elections. We shared perspectives, argued, misunderstood and circled back to the beginning to try again; we did our best to stay curious, listening for ways to move beyond cynicism and dualisms to find common ground. Not every conversation ended well, but the space made for civil dialogue was at least genuine. We learned from one another, often over tea and coffee, to then add another coffee stain on the painting panel in recognition of our hard work. We need both wings, afterall, to lift toward a broader perspective.
