an ode to the SOLE Grannies
A lot of ifs forthcoming...
If it's true a teacher should have more questions than answers
and that a teacher, if they give answers, should do so detached from certainty,
and with openness to more than they know,
and if it’s true that the ancient philosophers and mystics,
tell us that happiness and peace
comes from emptying ourselves and detaching from ego
that only seems to know things,
and if having no answers and all questions and wonder
means we are empty and detached
then isn’t teaching is this way, empty of knowing,
as great teachers do,
as the Grannies do,
pointing us toward happiness and peace?
