since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom

lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
-the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh leaning back in my arms

for life's not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

-ee cummings

New knowledge is the most valuable commodity on earth. The more truth we have to work with, the richer we become.

My goal…. is to uplift people as much as I can

To inspire them to realize more and more of their capacities for living meaningful lives

Because there certainly is meaning to life

- John Coltrane

Stop Waiting
Feel Everything
Love Achingly
Give Impeccably

Let go.

me. mini-skirt. pair of navy blue ass-kickin' keds. Visiting Liz in the studio was so nice.

the idea of keeping hold of one's own personal identity while still being in a healthy relationship is so nice.

I have one month of classes left. April of 2006 was one to remember in pieces; April of 2007 will be one to remember as a whole.

Man with the Long Hair: They say that dreams are only real as long as they last. Couldn't you say the same thing about life?

Speed Levitch: On really romantic evenings of self, I go salsa dancing with my confusion.

Quiet Woman at Restaurant: When it was over, all I could think about was how this entire notion of oneself, what we are, is just this logical structure, a place to momentarily house all the abstractions. It was a time to become conscious, to give form and coherence to the mystery, and I had been a part of that. It was a gift. Life was raging all around me and every moment was magical. I loved all the people, dealing with all the contradictory impulses - that's what I loved the most, connecting with the people. Looking back, that's all that really mattered.

Pinball Playing Man: There's only one instant, and it's right now. And it's eternity.

Guy Forsyth: The trick is to combine your waking rational abilities with the infinite possibilities of your dreams. Because, if you can do that, you can do anything.

Speed Levitch: Life is a matter of a miracle that is collected over time by moments flabbergasted to be in each others presence.

The ongoing WOW is happening right NOW.
Boat Car Guy: The idea is to remain in a state of constant departure while always arriving.

Old Man: As the pattern gets more intricate and subtle, being swept along is no longer enough.

we needed a night out
by Timothy Gager

you in your towel
"come on upstairs,
i'm getting ready."
i'm not early
you're not late
just getting ready
wrapped in two towels
bathed in candlelight
i'm trying not to look
tonight we need to leave the house
get out for some fun
conic towel on your head,
unfurled hair cascading down
you lean bending
toward the blow dryer
the soft curve of your bottom peeking
umm, i'm trying to find a book
plan failing
we need to leave the house
"what's wrong honey?"
you jump onto my lap
warmth under towel two
me mumbling something me mumbling
umm, as you push me down
"let's go bowling"
kiss again
"we need to leave the house," you say
and i'm thinking that i can't tell where you begin
and the damp towel ends
my stomach growls
but I growl louder
as lips lock, we both softly moan
as I slide on top
splitting you, your towel, everything smooth complete utter
making love again, again
and later
eat peanut butter and jelly in bed

the ability to find peace in stillness and quiet

the achievement over my fear of commitment and the enjoyment of the lack of a brass band

the ease with which I move forward in my ambitions, but at the same time now am more grounded and living in the present than ever before

I find happiness from these calms and being wholly within these calms.

"I always had one foot out the door, and that prevented me from doing a lot of things, like thinking about my future and... I guess it made more sense to commit to nothing, keep my options open. And that's suicide. By tiny, tiny increments." - high fidelity (thanks liz conger)

Aaron Sorkin's episode of SN: "The Giants Win the Pennant! The Giants Win the Pennant!"

[Dan just found out that Isaac missed Bobby Thompson's "Shot heard 'round the world"]

Dan: Were you bummed?
Isaac: For a while -

- but then you get older,
and it just joins all the other things in your life that happened
while you were looking the other way.

Dan: Did you see your daughter get born?
Isaac: Yeah.
Dan: Did you see her graduate college?
Isaac: Yeah.
Dan: Are you watching "Sports Night" tonight?
Isaac: Yeah.
Dan: Then shut up.
27th-Feb-2007 09:23 am - snapshot: this moment
I sit in my downstairs room of 1029A Douglas Street, aka 'the moon capsule', and Mutual Kumquat is playing.

"untitled" to be specific:

... [our] days [are] numbered - wish I could spend them all with you

but I will love you

and now DMB: "Stolen away on 55th and 3rd" -

I HAVE BEEN THERE. Walking from work down to the subway stop at Lexington, it's so beautiful so perfect in simply just being there

this life is so beautiful, this moment is so beautiful, my friends are so beautiful -

right now I hold on tight to the beauty and truth that lives within these people who make the very blood pump in and out of my heart.

and now Tom Rush: "No regrets" -

i know your leaving's too long overdue... no regrets....

i feel like dave eggers as he's ending AHWOSG with him and his fucking fucking fucking lattice

Mt. Pleasant is a lattice

this lifetime is a lattice

weaved together and stronger than any of us individually understand

something inside me rises up and shouts a battle cry as I read posts by JT and FW about people and friends who make you go "Awwwwwwwwwwwwww" - Jack Kerouac has nothing on my fajita friends.
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Falling in love is like owning a dog
an epithalamion by Taylor Mali

First of all, it's a big responsibility,
especially in a city like New York.
So think long and hard before deciding on love.

On the other hand, love gives you a sense of security:
when you're walking down the street late at night
and you have a leash on love
ain't no one going to mess with you.
Because crooks and muggers think love is unpredictable.
Who knows what love could do in its own defense?

On cold winter nights, love is warm.
It lies between you and lives and breathes
and makes funny noises.
Love wakes you up all hours of the night with its needs.
It needs to be fed so it will grow and stay healthy.

Love doesn't like being left alone for long.
But come home and love is always happy to see you.
It may break a few things accidentally in its passion for life,
but you can never be mad at love for long.

Is love good all the time? No! No!
Love can be bad. Bad, love, bad! Very bad love.

Love makes messes.
Love leaves you little surprises here and there.
Love needs lots of cleaning up after.

Sometimes you just want to get love fixed.
Sometimes you want to roll up a piece of newspaper
and swat love on the nose,
not so much to cause pain,
just to let love know: Don't you ever do that again!

Sometimes love just wants to go for a nice long walk.
Because love loves exercise.
It runs you around the block and leaves you panting.

It pulls you in several different directions at once,
or winds around and around you
until you're all wound up and can't move.

But love makes you meet people wherever you go.
People who have nothing in common but love
stop and talk to each other on the street.

Throw things away and love will bring them back,
again, and again, and again.

But most of all, love needs love, lots of it.
And in return, love loves you and never stops.
