the river flows

what makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn’t have any doubt ~ it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn’t want to go anywhere else. ~ hal boyle

rain drops

rain makes me 🙂

the only noise now was the rain, pattering softly with the magnificent indifference of nature for the tangled passions of humans.

“please” ~ “no”

some knitters say that they buy yarn with no project in mind and wait patiently for the yarn to “speak” to them. this reminds me of michelangelo, who believed that every block of stone he carved had the statue waiting inside and that all he did was reveal it. i think i’ve had yarn speak to me during the knitting process, and i’ve definitely spoken to it. perhaps i’m doing it wrong, or maybe my yarn and i aren’t on such good terms, but it really seems to me that all i say is “please” and all it ever says is “no”.

reflections & shadows

3 ~ from here & there

every man carries with him through life a mirror, as unique and impossible to get rid of as his shadow. ~ w.h. auden, the dyer’s hand

reflection

do you ever wonder if the guy in the puddle is real, and you’re just a reflection of him? ~ bill watterson
