P.S. The last time I saw you, you were certainly one of the nicest people I had ever seen.  Now I hear that you are learning to dance.  That makes you just about perfect.


Letter from Kurt Vonnegut to his Daughter Nanette Vonnegut, 1965

Wind, Sand, & Stars https://www.22pagespdx.com/blog/2013/1/wind-sand-stars  

“The first stars tremble as if shimmering in green water. Hours must pass before their glimmer hardens into the frozen glitter of diamonds. I shall have a long wait before I witness the soundless frolic of the shooting stars. In the profound darkness of certain nights I have seen the sky streaked with so many trailing sparks that it seemed to me a great gale must be blowing through the outer heavens. ”

The Peace of Wild Things https://www.22pagespdx.com/blog/2012/12/the-peace-of-wild-things  




When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

By Wendell Berry

the secret garden https://www.22pagespdx.com/blog/2012/8/the-secret-garden “As she came closer to him she noticed that there was a clean fresh scent of heather and grass and leaves about him, almost as if he were made of them. She liked it very much and when she looked into his funny face with the red cheeks and round blue eyes she forgot that she had felt shy.”

the longest day https://www.22pagespdx.com/blog/2012/6/the-longest-day summer-1

today the sun will appear to stand still as it hovers at it’s highest point as seen from the northern hemisphere.  


and from this place, the sun will formally introduce summer.  this introduction comes with a gentle reminder that these longer days will not last forever and from this place, minute by minute, the days will slowly wane until they are no longer apparent.   then, as if the sun knows how hardening and consuming darkness can be for our spirit, it will appear from the opposite side.  from this new place,  the sun will formally introduce winter, but not without a gentle reminder that these dark days will not last forever.  from this, the days will swell slowly until they are no longer distinguishable.  then, as if the sun knows how hardening and consuming light can be for our spirit, it will appear again, bringing with it another reminder, that these bright days will not last forever. 



I believe the sun will continue to do this until we no longer need reminding.

we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.

NE 26th-1

Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string. Accept the place the divine providence has found for you, the society of your contemporaries, the connection of events. Great men have always done so, and confided themselves childlike to the genius of their age, betraying their perception that the absolutely trustworthy was seated at their heart, working through their hands, predominating in all their being. And we are now men, and must accept in the highest mind the same transcendent destiny; and not minors and invalids in a protected corner, not cowards fleeing before a revolution, but guides, redeemers, and benefactors, obeying the Almighty effort, and advancing on Chaos and the Dark.

Self Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sweet Dancer https://www.22pagespdx.com/blog/2012/2/Sweet-Dancer


William Butler Yeats


The girl goes dancing there
On the leaf-sown, new-mown, smooth
Grass plot of the garden;
Escaped from bitter youth,
Escaped out of her crowd,
Or out of her black cloud.
Ah, dancer, ah, sweet dancer!


If strange men come from the house
To lead her away, do not say
That she is happy being crazy;
Lead them gently astray;
Let her finish her dance,
Let her finish her dance.
Ah, dancer, ah, sweet dancer!

possible intention https://www.22pagespdx.com/blog/2011/12/possible-intention Morning Poem by Mary Oliver

Every morning
the world
is created.

Under the orange
sticks of the sun
the heaped
ashes of the night
turn into leaves again

and fasten themselves to the high branches —
and the ponds appear
like black cloth
on which are painted islands

of summer lilies.
If it is your nature
to be happy
you will swim away along the soft trails

for hours, your imagination
alighting everywhere.
And if your spirit
carries within it

the thorn
that is heavier than lead —
if it’s all you can do
to keep on trudging —

there is still
somewhere deep within you
a beast shouting that the earth
is exactly what it wanted —

each pond with its blazing lilies
is a prayer heard and answered
every morning,

whether or not
you have ever dared to be happy,
whether or not
you have ever dared to pray.
