Creased gossamer

"...When everything happens at once, no conflicts can occur.
Reality is an impasse. ..."

From "Of Distress Being Humiliated by the Classical Chinese Poets" by Hayden Carruth

Gosh, isn't that the truth. Can you even imagine life without conflict? I think that's almost 'flat line' isn't it???? I've been in a cave! How are you Lori???! I also had a computer crash that took my mac to the MacGraveYard...I bought a new little mac, but lost all my bookmarks and blogs so I just now found you again!

I love your Shelfari...I may have to get one of those. I just picked up Tuesdays with Morrie. I can't believe it took me so long to get that book. I'm so behind...figures...I'm still on dial up. ;0)

Hope you are glad I found your blog again...

that color looks like it would taste of lemons and butterscotch and somehow end up tasting good besides.

WS Merwin just read just a couple hundred miles from where I am. Alas, couldn't go to sit at his feet. But it was nice to think of poems floating round the atmosphere.

absolutely love this photo, I can't even describe why--it just is beautiful--I can feel the warmth and the texture of the fabric just by looking at it-

nice quote too.

Froth of autumn!

Lori, I've been too long away from your shenanigans. And enjoyed looking through all I've missed these past few weeks.
