Favorite Quote:
I believe that there is one story in the world, and only one.... Humans are caught -- in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too—in a net of good and evil... There is no other story. A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well -- or ill?


A bud
Like an eye
As it opens
First look at sky
As it flowers
Soaking in
On leaf filled arbors
Life's vit and vim
Youth flit-flies
Begins to sigh
As it crinkles
And starts to fade
A withered stem
Waving goodybe
