Typewriter: Share Your Words @ Commitment March DC

These two pages were typed by people in attendance at the Commitment March in Washington D.C. on 8/28/2020, at the base of the Lincoln Memorial directly after speeches by Martin Luther King III and Yolanda Renee King, the granddaughter of Martin Luther King Jr., on the anniversary of his “I Have A Dream” speech, at the height of the George Floyd Uprising.

Typed on my 1958 Hermes 3000 manual typewriter, incidentally of the kind popular among journalists at the time of the 1963 speech – not obtained for this significance, just the kind of typewriter that I own.

These two pages were made over just about two hours, masks worn, gloves offered, and keys sanitized between contributors. The typewriter was set up on a bench, in the kindly forfeited space of one person. Some of my neighbors helped invite others to write, and contributed additional sanitation supplies. People of many ages stopped by to satisfy their curiosity and come up with something to say, and I had to keep up with the enthusiasm.

This exercise, which I call Share Your Words (a succinct explanatory sign), brings forward voices often unheard, in exactly their words of expression. It’s not exactly an exquisite corpse, which has each participant continue the contribution of the previous according to rules, but a freeform collective page. Typewriter pages exist as created in the moment, lending a measure of trust to the messenger. I also love offering a moment where people can interact with this empowering technology, which doesn’t require electricity, creates instant transfer to physical copy, and is strictly for the creation of words and records. Every time I’ve shared my typewriter for a collective event, more often just for the fun of literary gatherings, it is someone’s first time using one. I’ve seen the spark of enjoyment light many faces, often people who didn’t expect their thoughts to be carried to an audience or become part of a record. Just the appeal of a novel experience invites people to try it who may not see themselves as writers, and the casual nature of bystander freeform contribution allows people to express themselves without the pressure of importance. Lightheartedness ensues, as well as raw honesty.

A previous Share Your Words session was held at Standing Rock Reservation during protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline, on Veteran’s Day 11/11/2017. The record is on this author website, and has its own Facebook page.

The Commitment March pages were initially quick-shared on my main project website, bonesofstarlight.com, and my own facebook feed. Now they’re getting a post on this author website with searchable text transcriptions, a spot where they can stay. I also intend to make its own facebook social media page, as I did for Standing Rock. The page images are welcome to be shared anywhere, by anyone, under CC-0 open copyright.

The original images are included below with both a transcription edited for clarity, and an exactly-worded transcription.

-say anything you think or feel today-

Today is a day we can start anew. To see the different beautiful faces
brings hope.

As Queen, I was very pleased with the outcome of this movement.

Stop seeing us as our black skin. I am human, I am a woman, I am a mother, I
am an auntie, I am a sister, I am a daughter, my blood is red. My heart breaks.

I love you, please learn to love yourself. KO

I’m tired. AC Pope

Black trauma – the pain, this should not be a thing for every generation.

I am here today not for myself, but for my generation and the generations to come,
to know that we stood against injustice and for equality. – Justin Agudosi

Enough is enough is enough. The time for change is not in the future, it’s now.

From Javier Chicas – What a learning and deep experience it was today, with the whole
Black Lives Matter movement, today on August 28 2020.

Our freedom cannot be accomplished under capitalism. Free
the people, free the press, and then we see economic and social
liberation blossom.

Come together right now, peace.

Free Dr. Cosby Free R. Kelly transcribed ELE

I am pregnant, and scared for the world my baby will live in.

magnanimous is a state one achieves when one ascends to entelexeia.
entelexeia is acquired when integrity is curated within one’s character.

repeated actions are driven by one’s choices.

one’s choices are inspired by a collection of thoughts.
true thoughts that move one’s self are intrinsically magnanimous.

In essence, life in flow is found when one remembers not to
look too far for what one seeks. It is always there within, just beneath the surface
just waiting to be expressed. One must feel it with their everything to find its

Typewriter: Share Your Words at Standing Rock

On Veteran’s Day 2016, I brought my typewriter to Oceti Sakowin Camp, Standing Rock Reservation.  Bearing a sign reading “SHARE YOUR WORDS”, I carried it with table and chair to different locations: an action gathering point, the communications hill, volunteer table/book stand by the sacred fire, and Grandma’s Kitchen.  All different kinds of people contributed their thoughts and statements throughout the day, resulting in six pages of collective history.

First the images were immediately shared on facebook & imgur, and the text transcriptions were posted on the Share Your Words @ Standing Rock facebook page.  Now that they’re complete, I’m giving them a page on my author site for extra perpetuity.

I would be glad for these pages to have as many homes online as possible.  By all means, repost in part or entirety everywhere and anywhere, to share with related communities and for posterity.  This was a special place in time where many people realized their connections to each other and to the land – we can remember it like this.

The images and words of the 6 pages of Share Your Words at Standing Rock are available to the public under a CC BY 4.0 Attribution license (at bottom).  That means these pages are available to public works for personal, educational, and commercial re-use with attribution to Oceti Sakowin Camp, Standing Rock Reservation.

I come from Sitting Bull’s people. I carry the name Sitting Bull. People call me Kola Manny. But my real name is Emanuel Red Bear, and I am from South Dakota. I’m a high school teacher and a college professor of Lakota culture and history. My thoughts are that the people that are standing on the frontline of this cause are the true warriors, because they are protecting a way of life, protecting the water.

We’re here to stop the self-sabotage of our species.))

To me, veteran’s day means that our people have been assimilated and acculturated to serve Uncle Sam, foreign and domestic. They could attack us here if they want. The National Guard are going against us. We are the true warriors.

The power of love isa fire
The earth is my Mother
prayer is the answer while we stand together
mni wiconi

Frm
From Her comes the Life
with help from Above
Through darkness, the light
shin es forth with the Love
Creation Divine, the mind led astray
So clearly defined, its time to repay
Oh Give Thanks to the Mother
debts we owe
Forget not the Father
Power that Flows
Love for the Mother

I hitched aride from Milwaukee to Standing Rock with an alien conspiracy theorist. He was quite nice but halfway through the trip he launched into a several hour l ong rant about the three types of aliens that have infiltrated Earth.: the insectoids, the lizardpeople., and the grays. the grays arr the most aggressive; they’ve been kidnapping Americans for over a century for fertility experiments and the government looks the other way because of a covert agreement with the Eisenhaur

administration. In exchange, the aliens give the government advanced military te chnology. Humans were created as an agricultural experiment by aliens from Sirius. I missed a good bit of the story because, not wanting to vocalize my doubts, I zon ed out.  We later were pulled over because he was driving 28 miles over the speed limit.

Typewriter: Wordstock 2015

Recap, rescuing from Bones of Starlight story website and placing here where it belongs.

Wordstock 2015 is the first place where I offered my typewriter for collective writing, including occasional observations in my idle moments.  This was the result.

people forget what you said; they forget what you did; but they never forget how you made them feel……MayaAngelou
