Some thoughts on what’s to come…

April 6, 2010

Of late, I’ve been sojourning and spinning tales and have, alas, neglected this here project.

But while I’ve been bearing a particularly bouyant albatross of late let me tease and tickle (that is to say) soon

we shall discuss dinner with a delightful, debauched old man who has more life in his 80 year old self than many 20 somethings with all their muscle and fustle.

We shall, again, baffle at how uncomfortable people are with any and all things that aren’t stripped from the book (or the box)

The space (the open, untouchable but knowable space) above my head.

For now, I leave with you with words, words, words (of my great-grandfather that is, Sir Tolstoy)–passed from him, to a friend, to the net, to me and now you.  I’ve saved my favorite of his, one concerning the big L, for a full-on, all-out musing.

May you shine, shimmer and simmer in the Spring sun,

Amor amichi,

H to the olly

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”

“Historians are like deaf people who go on answering questions that no one has asked them.”

“In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.”
“Our body is a machine for living. It is organized for that, it is its nature. Let life go on in it unhindered and let it defend itself.”
