A Seductive Display of Vanity

Picture of one human under vast skies, Feet planted in the sand; To the human, the stance is firm, But we know better - Don't we? With no intent toward subtracting a single atom from the worth of the one, Surely we must know and see those feet Planted in that surf-pounded sand, 'neath those … Continue reading A Seductive Display of Vanity

I said hi to a hunter in the sky: A constellation meditation

Last week, late one night, Orion rolled up over the side of the horizon. I hadn't seen the rough old bastard in a while. I never see him in the summer. So I said hey, what's up.

Yet, indeed, even a wizard such as I may be drawn down to the lowly temporal by the petty circumstances and trivial victories and defeats of the … Continue reading Spirit as Tall as the Mountain, as Wide as the Sea
