i never held her
but sometimes i still rock her
swaying in the dark

my aspirations are caught
up in the tresses
of the beautiful people
that congregate
on the corner of Harmony
and Andrews
in the early morning light
they shiver in the coveted woolens
the green and gold and white
and if i get there in time i might
get to go along
for the sunshine ride


…for the heart that loves this way is desperate
and the eye that loves is blind.

A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl. ~Stephan Hoeller

Why don’t the Beatles get back together?
Why don’t nobody sing of romance?
Oh, baby, all you want to do is dance~

A dame that knows the ropes isn’t likely to get tied up.

I’ve dreamt dreams in my life that have stayed with me ever after and changed my ideas; they’ve gone through me and through me like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.
Emily Bronte

The reasonable man
adapts himself to the world:

the world to himself.
all progress depends
upon the unreasonable man.

George Bernard Shaw

It is only in modern times that we have become so uncomfortable with depression and despair that we medicate it away; for centuries, people exorcised it all through art and music.
