The Old Man

Sitting in the corner
is an old man.
He is cracked,
humbled, full of wisdom.

I gaze into His eyes
and another dimension
opens up.
He sees into me,
he peers into my soul.

There is no exactness
to this science.
The cloud of unknowing
parts and I see clearly:
How is it the old man is me?
I am Him? 

There is a place where everything disappears from existence, and the dance of life and the dancer are one in the same.

Life Is A Bicycle Philosophy

~ A man may be born, but to be born he must first die, and in order to die, he must first awake. -Carl Sandburg

~ Many people live lives of quiet desperation and go to their graves with the song still in them. - Henry David Thoreau

~ There is nothing that will not reveal its secrets if you love it enough. -George Washington Carvel

~ Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing. -Salvador Dali

~ Doing what you want to do is life. And there is no real satisfaction in living if you are compelled to be forever doing something which we do not like to do, and can never do what we want to do. The desire to do it is the proof that you have within you the power to do it. -Tennessee Williams

~ Dreams are born in your heart and mind, and only there can they ever die.    -Art Berg

~ Ideas are elusive, slippery things. Best to keep a pad of paper and a pencil at your bedside, so you can stab them during the night before they get away. -Earl Nightingale

~Be the change you want to see in the world. -Mahatma Gandhi

Dark Thoughts

Dark thoughts gather nourishment from dark images. Emotional violence creates storms on the inside and then manifest themselves on the outside.
Keeping a watchful eye on your thoughts is of great importance. If storms are brewing on the inside who is the one to restrain your actions? Your anxious thoughts give rise to all the problems in your life.
You blame others for your misfortune, but do not see the devil's cleverness and the devices he uses to engage you in all your violence.
The entrance into the mind must be guarded. Guard your thoughts. Make beautiful images with your mind and when darkness creeps in remember God.

The Story of Sapphire and Arion: Ten Questions

Do tell me Beloved:

How long must this illusion go on before I am committed to an asylum?

How long can a lover wait before her heart gives out and she dies?

Haven't you had enough time to compare me to all your other lovers? And did it not make you yearn for the one whom makes you feel alive?

Do you have any pictures of me? Do you have any sketches of me? And if so, may I see?

Am I just an idiot for thinking this could possibly be real?

Sometimes, I hear a song and it reminds me of you. I have to drop everything I'm doing to hear the song. Does this ever happen to you?

Please do tell me if nothing else, what color are your eyes?

Your Darling
