|Day 12: "Lunch" The best part, anyway!|
|My college mentor used to call me Ophelia...|
The pattern of the air around that leaf
is like someone tracing my ribcage
with his index finger
and then walking away.
Who can blame us for wanting other worlds,
but shall we take them,
or let them come to us? Is the spirit just an ear
more like a mouth
that bites the air and turns it into blood?
[Katie Peterson, from 'Meditation Denying Everything' in Permission]
Only one day left til the weekend! What a relief.
[the title quotation is by Arnold Newman, and reads in its entirety: “A lot of photographers think that if they buy a better camera they’ll be able to take better photographs. A better camera won’t do a thing for you if you don’t have anything in your head or in your heart.”]
