I found this man in New Harmony, Indiana. Robert Lax

This poem was written on a placard outside the entrance to a beautiful secret gardent.

"And in the beginning was love. Love made a sphere: all things grew within it; the sphere then encompassed beginnings and endings, beginning and end. Love had a compass whose whirling dance traced out a sphere of love in the void: in the center thereof rose a fountain."

~ The Circus of the Sun ~ Robert Lax ~

"Our reluctance to throw ourselves into life with all that we are -- to abandon ourselves, come what may -- is born of the fear we may not be enough to succeed. But the truth is that within us dwells more than we take ourselves to be . . . and only by leaping do we learn of unseen wings that open only in mid-air."

~ Guy Finley

"There are too many small miracles around us for us to think anything other than everything will be all right."

i've always loved this one.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle Autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.

Don't call it uncertainty--call it wonder.

Don't call it insecurity--call it freedom.

Healing Path

Teach me how to gather
The fragments of my soul,
Reclaiming lost potential,
I seek to become whole.

Let me find forgiveness,
Embracing a new way to be,
Releasing the hurt and anger
Toward all who wounded me.

Let me heal my human body,
The sacred vessel of my soul,
Mending all the unhealed aspects,
I find within my Medicine Bowl.

Let me find the courage
To face the enemies within,
Healing all my weaknesses,
Honoring the warrior therein.

Let me honor my sacred promise,
To be loyal to my healing quest,
Never deserting my Medicine,
Nor the heart within my breast.

~Jamie Sams

It's so beautiful outside right now. I only wish that I were waking up to greet the day rather than finally making myself go to bed. School starts on Tuesday. It would be so nice to have a healthy schedule on the sun's time. :o) I do love the moon, but I see it too much. The sun makes me happy. The sun reappears everyday to light my life, all our lives... It is my hope. Time to cling to it. <3

One aspect of ‘modernism’ has been its effort to annihilate history, to create an art without precedent, to renovate sensibility, to canonize the New. We have had more than a half-century of newness, and suddenly it has aged....

Our century has licensed extremes of chaos and violence on the grandest scale known to man....The fragmentary, the nightmarish, the mad, exploited to their capacity of excess, have become mechanical, repetitive, deadened.

The essence of ballet, on the other hand, is order....

...The response of the audience to good dancing is a release of body and breath, a thanksgiving that is selfless, generous, complete, and leaves the spectator corroborated in the hope that, despite the world and its horrors, here somehow is a paradigm of perfection....

The whole operation of a ballet company is a microcosm of a civil condition. The frailty of its operation is that of any artistic or cultural institution in a civilization that prefers to spend its bounty on armaments and consumer goods. However, a ballet company, existing in the interstices of the community, almost vaunts its hardy frailty. In an infinitesimal way, each good performance clears a small area of menace, and for the moment reminds us of the possible which, if it is not perfection, approaches it.

Ending a Sentence with a Preposition
© Copyright 2003, Jim Loy

People sometimes warn us against ending a sentence with a preposition. An example is "That is the house I live in," which can be written slightly more clearly as "I live in that house." I say "more clearly" because the prepositional phrase is "in that house," which is not as clear in the first example. If a sentence is unusually long, and the ending preposition will be a long distance from its object, then it is best to avoid ending with the preposition. Apparently Latin has a rule against ending a sentence with a preposition. English has no such rule. It is sometimes preferable to avoid ending with a preposition, and sometimes it is preferable to end with a preposition. "Where are you from" is more natural than "From where are you."

When Winston Churchill was once criticized for ending a sentence in a preposition, responded, "That is the kind of thing up with which I will not put." Of course, he was making fun of the nonexistant "rule." Here is an exteme example of the hazards of ending with a preposition:

Child: I want to be read to.
Mother: Which book would you like to be read to out of?
Child: Robinson Crusoe.
Mother brings Swiss Family Robinson.
Child: What did you bring me that book to be read to out of for?

from here: clicky
dayumn, that's a lot of posts from me todai.

I am watching the Tsunami Aid Concert of Hope. There are some touching moments here. Some of it is moo-y and commercial and whart?, but it is a good cause. It is a good thing. And I am for all that is good. And it is wonderful to see people joining together to help others. The love and caring for others is the best part... gives me some hope in humanity and for the things that I most believe in...

I love to play. I got to play, cuddle, and communicate with long lost family members for 5 days. It was wonderful. However, I was running on light, and now I am paying the price. I would deeply enjoy it if we got together more than only once a year. The connections that I have with each of them are to be treasured and enjoyed, and life is short. Spring sounds nice... there is more, but not just yet.

I want to write more habitually in this journal. I like this journal. It is much more positive yet less mollified and hackneyed than my other. Good-bye for now. <3

Mood: content.
I love being in the flow of things. I love it when everything just works and life feels magical. I love it when I notice the little things. I love it when I can see beauty in anything. I love it when I am completely myself and let go of all chains and masks. I love it when I feel free. I love it when everything makes sense. I love to be at peace.

I need to remember to let go.

(I also need to remember to write more often!!!)

Love.
