About meCurrent favorite words:

Rain. (Especially when dancing and sizzling.)

Loveliness -- as in, "That poet's ambition with language is to embody 'loveliness'."

There are uncounted other variations. Celebrate yours.

Silence. (A favorite sound I endeavor to embody in poems as successfully as birds sing it.)

Love sparrows, and -- be forewarned -- actively defend them against negative criticisms. Especially love hearing them in clusters talking all at once and keeping the neighborhood awake with NOISE!

Turtles are not intellectually slow; they are contemplating.

Law, and legal history, have much to teach about that which isn't new: human behaviors and the need to regulate them for the sake of public safety.

Buddhism, says Thanissaro Bhikkhu, is at core "psychology and values". I agree. (Zen is as transparent and empty as water that has evaporated.)

I have other views but space is limited. Those expressed above may change without warning. Or stay the same -- also without warning.

About my libraryI have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. -- Jorge Luis Borges, "Poema de los Dones," from El Hacedor.
