Favorite Quote:
Enjoy life today, yesterday is gone, and tomorrow may never come.

Why are we so stuck about this?
Do we think that the only way is to riddle ourselves?

When you started, you felt something
And now
You check those words,
Those phrases against your own original feeling,
Are they in sync with what you were reaching for?
You try to describe
This world we live in
But the language pushes back,
The reality of the world
Pushes back;
The lack of fit is a gift.
Revision: collaboration with self over time,
To open yourself up to impulses-and new visions of yourself.

In revising, you align yourself more and more with what
You feel to be true.
In you,
Discovering life by adding to,
Changing and working,
