the goal of living is to grow)
forgetting why,remember how
in time of lilacs who proclaim
the aim of waking is to dream,
remember so(forgetting seem)
in time of roses(who amaze
our now and here with paradise)
forgetting if,remember yes
in time of all sweet things beyond
whatever mind may comprehend,
remember seek(forgetting find)
and in a mystery to be
(when time from time shall set us free)
forgetting me,remember me.
“So you think that you’re a failure, do you? Well, you probably are. What’s wrong with that? In the first place, if you’ve any sense at all you must have learned by now that we pay just as dearly for our triumphs as we do for our defeats. Go ahead and fail. But fail with wit, fail with grace, fail with style. A mediocre failure is as insufferable as a mediocre success. Embrace failure! Seek it out. Learn to love it. That may be the only way any of us will ever be free.”
the Magus says to change three things. the Seer says "an act of nature will render a conflict irrelevant."
cards say Great Change, with an entire self on the other side.
"accept yourself for who you are. thats the first lesson."
but theres such a block.
tomorrow i hope to begin to begin again.
"Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good-hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives… and to the “good life”, whatever it is and wherever it happens to be."
may apples open, waves of horsetail. dark moon in taurus tomorrow. a good start.
the woods cold and wet the sound of water and the bird on the wire stands waiting on one foot for sunshine.
the rain rides up the ragged cuff of my jeans, my clogs so blown out it impairs my progress.
duct tape on a splinter, the baby liked my bread. beautiful beads of words strung spontaneously and of course i have nothing to write on and the beads turn to birds and make a beautiful circle over the city of my brain before lighting in the spire of Lethe's cathedral. my lungs love the weather but my spirit could use a little sunshine. its hard to be good but its worth trying. i doodles brains, or intestines, something crenellated and essential.
