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.
