'the whole secret of existence is to have no fear. never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. only the moment you
reject all help are you freed.' - buddha

'the best art and writing... is so vibrant that you feel compelled to make something in response. Suddenly it is clear what you have to do. For a brief moment it seems wonderfully easy to live and love and create breathtaking things.'

excerpt from the 'love' section of learning to love you more
(so very true)

i hear you
live with eyes, open
ears two, how?
to get from there, two
hear (without raining) from
eye, take my hand.
sea? it was made
four holding
your heart. beats
brain, shape fits mine
like jigsaw,
sow, the sky holds
tears, my heart apart
i see you, and
we eight.

'youthful, caressing, boisterous, tender
middle aged thoughtful, ten thousand noticings of shore ship or street,
workbench, forest, household or office, opera-
that conning his paper book again to read aloud to those few chinese boys & girls
who know enough american tongue to ear his hand-
loath to select one leaf from another, loath to reject a sympathetic page
-the tavern boy's look, a stone prisoner's mustache-sweat, prostitute in the sun, garrulous old man waving goodbye on the stoop-
i skim leaves beginning to end, this year in the middle kingdom
marvel his swimmers huffing naked on the wave
and touched by his desperado farewell, 'who touches this book touches a man'
tip the hat on my skull
to the old soldier, old sailor, old writer, old homosexual, old christ poet journeyman,
inspired in middle age to chaunt eternity in manhattan,
and see the speckled snake & swelling orb earth vanish
after green seasons civil war and years of snow
white hair.'

working on my last paper for college right now.
theres been lots of editing the past few days in several different contexts - photo + the broad scope of life in general. everything is changing fast (including my perception of change and its resonating implications).
