Hopes for the blog:
offer up the wild intersectedness of lived experience and engage others in creative, expressive, perhaps irreverant, hopefully playful, and respectful encounters....
enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

In the contradiction
lies the hope

Bertoit Brecht

Poetry begins with a lump in the throat

Robert Frost

While all are conditioned to resist sadness
a poet must embrace and be attentive to sadness

R.M. Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Live life; don't solve it

No clue who offered this as a statement for reflection; but I like it!


  1. I read this last night.
    I did not know what to say.
    I have re-read it this day.
    and still don't know what to say.
    Something like live life.
    But to find a comment
    for a good post
    requires a solution.
    Maybe not Absolution.

  2. All good thoughts for reflection, especially the last one about not trying to solve life, which does, indeed, get in the way of living.

  3. This is really lovely, thank you for sharing. All of this is speaking to me right now, especially the first one,(as many things are) and I need to mention something, one thing:

    Thank you for your continued comments and encouragement on my blog. My life is a hug hassle right now, with barely any time to write, let alone read much, but I look forward to your ever-constructive insight and input. Thank you!

  4. Punch-- thanks for this stanza of sweet sentiments, and the line about Absolution resonates with me. So thoughtful.
    Crow-- I am glad you were caught be the last quote; I will have to track down the author and give him some credit; but it speaks to me, too. thanks for the visit.
    Seventy-niner--thanks for the visit and the kind comments. It is a pleasure to read your writing and to see the amazing project that you are living in your blog. I am glad you welcome my comments and warn you that I will be a regular reader and commenter. :)
