You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it.
That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies,
that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems
and suffer and understand, for all that is life.
Sketch - drawn Spring 2009. It is a rare drawing to see eyes open. I grapple with feeling pain, but remembering that I, too, have caused pain..."for all that is life." My heart can't stay there too long. We climb back into the boat and float a wee bit further down this river of peace...the water of Now.
