Burden Bearing is about relationships.
About being in relation.
Of relations - their initiation, their maintenance, their survival.
Burden Bearing is the (extra)ordinary labor of sustaining the survival of relations -
between the self and the self,
between the self and the other,
between the self and the material world,
between the self and the immaterial world.
Burden Bearing is not heroic or superhuman.
It is human.
There is a choreography to it - in terms of traditional subsistence labors in indigenous nations and lands.
Gathering. Harvesting. Transporting. Storing. Offering.
