Go without a coat; find out what cold is. Go hungry; keep your existence lean. Wear away the fat, get down to the lean tissue and see what it’s all about. The only time you define your character is when you go without. In times of hardship, you find out what you’re made of and […]

We have time for everything Sleep, run back and forth, regret we made an error and err again judge others and absolve ourselves, we have time to read and write, edit what we wrote, regret what we wrote, we have time to make projects and never follow through we have time to dwell in illusions […]
“I talk about love, forgiveness, social justice; I rage against American materialism in the name of altruism, but have I even controlled my own heart? The overwhelming majority of time I spend thinking about myself, pleasing myself, reassuring myself, and when I am done there is nothing to spare for the needy. Six billion people […]

“You don’t know anyone at the party, so you don’t want to go. You don’t like cottage cheese, so you haven’t eaten it in years. This is your choice, of course, but don’t kid yourself: it’s also the flinch. Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most […]
davidkaniganDeep in Thought
Most days I cling to a single word. It is a mild-mannered creature made of thought. Future, or Past. Never the other, obvious word. Whenever I reach out to touch that one, it scurries away. —Laura Kasischke, opening lines to “Riddle” from Space, in Chains Laura Kasischke was awarded the 2011 National Book Critics Circle Award in poetry for Space, In […]

It’s Saturday. 5:30 am. 45F. Drizzling. Zeke is up early. Which means his keeper (Susan) is too. She’s at the kitchen table sipping coffee and reading The Times. He’s looking up at her, being cute, sitting like Royalty, waiting for a hand-out. It’s Banana today. Dog loves bananas. Who knew? He watches me warily. It […]
Your Miscellaneous Way Occupying your own skin with joy, I watch you listen to yourself living, discovering each day how much less of everything steadies you into being. - Terrance Keenan Credits: Image – Mme Scherzo. Quote: Whiskey River. More on Terrance Keenan @ this link.

“We yearn for silence, yet the less sound there is, the more our thoughts deafen us. How can we still the noise within?…In Vipassana you concentrate on sensation in stillness, sitting down, not necessarily cross-legged, though most people do sit that way. And sitting without changing position, sitting still. As soon as you try to […]

“The outcome of my days is always the same; an infinite desire for what one never gets; a void one cannot fill; an utter yearning to produce in all ways, to battle as much as possible against time that drags us along, and the distractions that throw a veil over our soul.” ~ Eugene Delacroix, […]
“But please remember, I don’t sit around wondering how people see the world, or how they feel about things. I don’t attempt to express their feelings. I only write about the way I feel. I mean, I’m not arbitrator of public tastes or opinion. I don’t have a following of people who are waiting for […]

His paternal grandparents were Croatian. He is an American actor, producer, director, and fashion designer. Over the last 30 years of his career, […]

My philosophy is: It’s none of my business what people say of me, and think of me. I am what I am, and I do what I do. I expect nothing, and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier. — Anthony Hopkins Credits: Portrait - geektyrant; Quote – Emotional Alegbra

Dread. It started in the shower. Stomach sour – doing loop de loops. Northern Michigan. Late November, 1980s. The morning shower is followed by a long walk in the dark from the dorm. Square into the teeth of a wicked Northern Michigan wind. Mitts. Goose down coats. Parkas. Sorel boots. Students filing in for the […]

“I’d like to answer all my phone calls, return all emails in a timely manner and mean the how-are-yous; not hide my broken hallelujahs, not save my gratitude for characters in books. Put love on sale, like I should…I’d like to whisper to only a few souls under a blanket instead of shouting at hundreds […]
“I think I grow tensions like flowers in a wood where nobody goes. Each wound is perfect, encloses itself in a tiny imperceptible blossom, making pain. Pain is a flower like that one, like this one, like that one, like this one.” - Robert Creeley, ”The Flower” Robert Creeley (1926 – 2005) was a major American poet […]
There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” - Nelson Mandela (July 18, 1918 – December 5, 2013) Image Credit. Quote: Sundog
