Marjolein Moorman describes her belief in politics as the only place to find collective solutions for problems we are facing today. (Interview Trouw November 27 2021) Moorman defines the lack of trust in politics as rooted in an absence of real attention (for people). Besides this, she signals a loss of imagination and the belief we can change things together.
This week has brought new changes in policies to contain the major increase of COVID contaminations in the Netherlands. Living these intense times, Moorman inspires me to return to what is really important: attention, faith, imagination, change, together. This weeks poem, ‘Het leven is kromgetrokken’ by Toon Tellegen emphasises where to start: attention.
