Dream Time

It’s been a month or more for most of us, with perhaps at least that much more to go.

Most people have found that time has grown slippery: we’re not sure which day it is, and we have no idea how long we’ll be in this suspended reality.

But suspended reality is a good time to consider how things could or should be when the more usual reality reasserts itself.

There’s still too much denialism, more than enough nostalgia, and plenty of speculation (not to say wishful thinking).

What there’s not nearly enough of is productive dreaming — the creative, strategic, intentional use of this break in time to consider what sort of world we want to re-emerge into.

What needs to happen? What needs to be built? Who’s it for?

And what can you start doing today, step by tiny, inexorable step, to make it real?
