Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

Waiting for the sun

“The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.”
― Gloria Steinem


Some days it is better
Not to get off the porch

All wisdom is contained in the choice
to sit watching the rain
fall gently outside
and feel the misty grayness

and let the storm pass

sometimes it is better to
wait for the sun to return

to stay silent
until the birds
once again sing
