I’m Sister EarthChild
journalist with Youth Radio
speaking with Mother Time,
who recently published her hilarious
“Journeys With Father Time:
Wasted Journals of Mother Time.”
First, I want you to know
I’ve been reading your book
as if it were my own story.
So, why the “wasted” journals?
Our issues of apparent matriarchal waste
in cooperative nature
may be better grasped
as ecosystemic boundary issues,
between Fr. Time’s Journey
and my Journal,
confined to the back pages
my point is this waste is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Energy and resources from one organism,
invested in one species,
contribute to supporting deductive lower-order
consumer co-owned foodchain providers
inductive higher-order ecosystem nurturers,
WinWin matriarchal cooperative networks,
Apparent deductive decomposing waste
to help cooperatively maintain
our spiraling flow of energy
and sacred environmental seasonal stability
for all transitioning organisms,
great and small.
So my matriarchal journals
are about wastes of history,
when matriarchal cooperative ecopolitical systems
were not yet fully commodified
and were under-invested
of and for more cooperative values
of democratic trust
and mutual freedoms,
rights and lefts together.
You talk funny.
Are you asking us to reconsider
matriarchal waste as symbiotic exchange
between and within partnering Patriarchs with Matriarchs?
And, if so,
but isn’t that rather an old school invitation?
Journeys With Father Time
are nutritional gambles,
where even trees hedge our bets,
extracting nutrients from old leaves
freely absorbing as needed
but no more.
And, if less,
we do not blame them
for wasting what they never had to give.
of your journeys in dialogue with Fr. Time,
“these are sustained by resource richness
producing excess dissonant waste,
re-investments supporting higher
nutritionally healthy outcomes.”
Is that faith
in the supremacy of cooperation
do you think?
I was just wondering,
trying to follow the regenerative string
of your co-creation story.
We can look at matriarchal history
to find apparent RightBrain waste
as potential LeftBrain abundance.
become energy sources for something other,
some polypathic nutritional system
of Earth’s co-intelligence.
This is a liberating process,
but freedom of authority
including responsible limits on cooperatively available energy,
within any one journey,
limits of polypathic diversity,
pressured through competitions
about what is waste and what is of healthy value,
yet continuously within WinWin
Any final thoughts?
We’re almost out of time.
Almost out of time for Patriarchy Knows Best Journeys.
To your generation of sisters,
work on lower carbon-cost investments
for re-investing deductive/inductive
decompositional journalistic materials,
designs for regenerative network building.
And, I guess we’ll have to leave you with that.
Whatever that was.
can we talk about my favorite story,
The Rise and Fall of Roman-Capitalist Colonialism?
That’s your favorite?
The one where the Patriarchal God of Love
builds ballistic bombs and bullets
so we can militarize and criminalize
worshiping this Patriarchal God of Loving Mistrust,
made in our own memories
of further travels with Fr. Time?
Yes, that one!
Kind of a mix of gothic horror
with operatic tragic-comedy.
I think that’s my favorite wasted journal entry too.
