I have been in the conversations where people used a talking stick or
another object which could be held to denote them as speakers at that
moment. Yet, I have never heard such a powerful and deep explanation of
its origin as Ray Evans Harrell gave in this post.
I will have a totally different relationship to the talking stick from
now. With the framing that Ray provided, I will be able to use it in the
generative conversation sessions I facilitate. So far, I have never done
so as it did not feel comfortable. I understand now why - I was ignorant
of the significance of the object and did not know how to use it properly.
Thank you, Ray.
