“The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the other…. The whole purpose of life is to live by love.”


Radical love as purpose has been cropping up everywhere so far this early year. Dreaming of bookshelves and a case to hold as sacred the to-do list to the sky. Lots of creation awaits, our wills should abound to keep up with our intellects. Parallel lines, reverberating beside one another. Wrapped up in the possibility 365 days offer. EveryDaySomething.

Hello dear friend!

I thought I’d share with you today a first forray, 

The day went something like this…

We entered a silver morning, dew settling upon our coat sleeves, feet slipping on muddy banks, hoping we weren’t harming the foliage from which we took wreath cuttings. We drove slowly through the deserted cemetery, peaceful estate, eyes ready for any branch or leaf or berry poised to become visual inspiration. Tactile fodder, we cut our fingertips on holly’s caution, we let water drops land in our hair, we took to strolling and abandoned the car. At one point, we came upon a stone totem, carved to resemble a tree, and pondered the two lives lived for this monument.


Winding branch and leaf into some shape like a circle or a square, using twine to secure sharp edges and to strengthen points of frailty, took the smaller portion of the afternoon which by this time had turned to early evening.


Lunar Love

Lady! Hope this reaches you in time/you already know:

Expect a total lunar eclipse tonight, starting around 10:30 pm.  It also happens to fall on the Winter Solstice, the first time these two coincide for 456 years.  Since our blog namesake stems from a school of thought that takes these events very seriously, I felt it quite necessary to discuss.  I am very happy to be alive on nights like these, you know?

Called I want to be her!

But I don’t, I just want to emulate

her insouciance,

to purchase her red bag

and to breeze around NY

right about now.
