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.

How to be Happy

When all your desires are distilled
You will cast just two votes

To love more,
And be happy.


what can we say
about life?

is it really as complicated as we would make it?

we rush through our days
we work
and play
and seek the grail
which holds the water of life

but ultimately our titles
our houses
our cars

all our prestige

is mere foolishness

all we need (isn’t this a song?)
is love

not all we need
(food and clothing are nice
as is a place to live
and perhaps a little medical care)

but really
if we have someone who loves us
someone who makes our heart sing
or, perhaps
 someone who simply allows us to be
who we really are
and if we commit ourselves to love

we have a better than average chance
to be
