Life Begins




I think I just got this song...
thanks...
for the picture,
for yourself,
for life...

for winter,
and spring...
and all the magic between them

enjoy

"this is where my life begins
this is where it takes me in
this is where the rivers flow
this is where the seats will grow

this is what the ancients know
this is what the stones will show
this is where my life begins
this is how I want it to end

this is where my life begins
this is where they take my hand
this is where the rivers flow
(???) streams and never slow

falling down for them to know
i'll be here and then I'll go
this is where my life begins
this is how I want it to end"

Una carta en el armario

“Diario? Nocturno!”

salió

cerré la puerta y respiré... muy profundo... por primera vez en 27 horas y media. de mi salió lo último del agobio y tristeza que quedaba. sonreí...

me quedé pegada a la puerta unos segundos. pero esta sintió la ambigüedad de mis pensamientos, y con ira me empujo hacia mi habitación. busqué lo que quería entregar, lo miré, vi su luz... lo encerré en mi puño y baje corriendo las escaleras... muy tarde.

vacilar, dudar... perdemos tanto.
mi lección.

en ese momento alguien gritó "se fué!!!". pensé "que pena". abrí la mano y vi la luz que quise entregar. de paso vi mis pies entre las hojas y ese semi-cuasi-lodo que se forma en la acera cuando llueve. moví los dedos entre las hojas de javilla y los restos de lluvia, y recordé la delicia de estar descalza en el suelo humedo, que tando disfrutaba de pequeña.

así que di un paseo corto, comulgue con la luna y las estrellas.
di las gracias...

y entonces regresé, totalmente renovada para sentarme frente al computador a escribir esto... que contradicción...

así que me voy a dormir.

buenas noches.

Simple Treasures



No me fui del todo,
dejé mis sueños en tu almohada.

No te fuiste del todo,
dejaste besos en mi cuerpo...

y en la cama
aun queda algo muy de ambos...

Quixotic

New word... I share...

Some of his plans were quixotic and much too good for this world, but he never wavered in a cause that he considered just and he commanded the respect of all who opposed him.
-- "Dr. John Dewey Dead at 92; Philosopher a Noted Liberal," New York Times, June 2, 1952

He is buying up commercial buildings in his hometown of Archer City and filling them with used books -- hundreds of thousands of used books gathered from all over the country -- as part of a quixotic scheme to turn this sleepy rural community into a mecca for book lovers.
-- Mark Horowitz, "Larry McMurtry's Dream Job," New York Times, December 7, 1997

I was amazed to learn that he didn't have much experience climbing mountains and that he wasn't intending to do any intensive training for his quixotic expedition.
-- Michael D. Eisner, Work in Progress
