Thurman

"In order to create something -- first you have to imagine it"

Disraeli

"There is no greater risk than matrimony. But, there is nothing happier than a happy marriage."

Covey

"Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change."

Liberating Love

Intertwining Individual Bliss
shared perfectly
between my heart and yours
a loving union
is virtually inconceivable in
real actualization
completely interrelated
supreme bliss
automatic oblivion
joyous nirvana
Our Highest Goals
independent and limitless
all previously binding chains
having been annihilated
in the cosmic instant
when total involvement
became an unavoidable certainty.

My truth becoming
Yours
Your reality becoming
Mine.

Cessation
Termination
Extinction
of our dualistic designs.

Your hand in mine
for all time.

Perfect Domesticity

"A house in the country
to find out what's true
a few linen shirts,
some good art
and you."

Explore

exploration of the
mind and body

liberation of the
senses and soul

my dream experiences
lead me to
another consciousness

dream lucidly
die lucidly

knowledge of this life
in the next
in the between
in the transitional experiences
of today

remembering the environment
and landscape
of yesterday
and incorporating
that knowledge
into today’s actions
develops my senses
for tomorrow’s journey

every cycle
every repetition

propelling me forward
refusing to slip
back
to old patterns
to old thoughts
to old mistakes

and, yet…
every mistake has created a grain of
enlightenment

for use in the next voyage.

"There are four questions of value in life... What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for? and, what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same...... Only love.”

salman rushdie

'A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.'

Watts

"Just as the highest and the lowest notes are equally inaudible, so perhaps, is the greatest sense and the greatest nonsense equally unintelligible."

Hesse

"When someone seeks then it happens all too easily that his eyes will see only the thing he is seeking, that he cannot find anything, cannot let anything in, because he is always thinking only of that thing he seeks. Because he has a goal, because he is possessed by that goal. Seeking means: having a goal. But finding means: being free, being open, having no goal. YOU may indeed be a seeker for striving toward your goal, but there is much you do not see which is right before your eyes."

Proust

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."

Valentine

I dwelt in darkness
refusing to trust
refusing to believe
refusing my love
for you.

You….
The angel whose light
Brightened my life.

You….
Pulled me out of myself
Created a trust unknown
Pushed my soul to connect

Your Love.
Your Passion.
Your Flame.

You….
Ignited my life
my mind
my soul.

You made me whole.

Garland

“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.”

Dig

commercial art?
makes no sense
like
selfish love?

This
Real Life
Has
Real Meaning

continued learning
unpredictable growth

experiencing
midwife
symptoms

helping
birth
other
creations

uninspired
in
my
own....

a muse
needed
to stimulate

lucrative
social
anomalies

I dig
to retrieve

? quintessential ?
hidden
dreams

c. lloyd

"We are born onto this earth with no clear set of instructions written on the inside of our arms. We can look for instructions in a variety of religions; we can wander the planet searching; we can get a decent job and try not to think about death, purpose, meaning, and other cosmic party tricks. As we grow up we develop various ethical and religious beliefs that can point us in certain directions, but within these belief systems, there are still many choices and so much uncertainty...."

Decomposition

creeping
crawling
through the darkness

moving -- slowly
waiting for...

no breath
no pulse
no thoughts

pushing the momentum
of the moment
through to the next

silence
stillness

another beating heart sensed

known
in the
night

moonlight -- glinting
through the clouds

creating shadows
reflecting pale skin
stop.

W. Blake

"To see a world in a grain of sand
And heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

secular

Kierkegaard

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself."
