OK, BabyBlue and I occasionally wave to each other across a considerable divide (perhaps a chasm, perhaps just a freeway) and we sometimes really really really get on each other's nerves, but, when she sets her mind to it that woman can write! Just a few days ago she wrote an essay titled, "A Journey from ConCom to FedCom?" In it BabyBlue gives us something of her journey and her heart's desire, and like Dorothy of Wizard of Oz fame she also gives hints that there is no place like home, if only home could be found. It is a fine piece.
I was amused by the "ConCom" designation in her title and essay because it made me think of a similar designation in Seven Days in May, a movie about a possible military takeover of the United States. In that movie there was a "site Y" where a military group called "EComCon" was training. It was supposed that "EComCon" might be about emergency communication control. In my mind, such as it is, I flashed an inversion of that and thought perhaps ConCom had to do with Control and Communication in Anglican-land.
"FedCom" and "ConCom" are wonderful abbreviations, and lo, they were created right there in our nation's capital, apparently on Dupont Circle. Funny and wonderful as they are, I find the distinction between the two modes of realignment thinking artificial. I don't believe they are two separate modes at all but rather concentric efforts in a plan for realignment and replacement.
But I find nothing artificial at all about BabyBlue's unfolding of her own journey. We should all hope to be as skillful in telling the story of our own journeys.
