    "Augusta (replied the noble Youth) I thought you had a better opinion of me, than to imagine I would so abjectly degrade myself as to consider my Father's Concurrence in any of my affairs, either of Consequence or concern to me. Tell me Augusta with sincerity; did you ever know me consult his inclinations or follow his Advice in the least trifling Particular since the age of fifteen?"
    "Be-and yet know the great void where all things begin,

    so that, this once, you may give it your perfect assent."

    It was wise enough to know itself, and brave enough to be itself, and wild enough to change itself while somehow staying altogether true.

    Oh yes. Fulcrum had broken, but that wasn’t wrong . Eggs break. Horses break. Waves break. Of course he broke. How else could someone so all certain- centered let his perfect answers out into the world? Some things were just too true to stay.

    Both quotes are from Slow Regard of Silent Things by Rothfuss

    Default lost

    Lost really has two disparate meanings. Losing things is about the familiar falling away, getting lost is about the unfamiliar appearing. There are objects and people that disappear from your sight or knowledge or possession; you lose a bracelet, a friend, the key. You still know where you are. Everything is familiar except that there is one item less, one missing element. Or you get lost, in which case the world has become larger than your knowledge of it. Either way, there is a loss of control. Imagine yourself streaming through time shedding gloves, umbrellas, wrenches, books, friends, homes, names. This is what the view looks like if you take a rear-facing seat on the train. Looking forward you constantly acquire moments of arrival, moments of realization, moments of discovery. The wind blows your hair back and you are greeted by what you have never seen before. The material falls away in onrushing experience. It peels off like skin from a molting snake. Of course to forget the past is to lose the sense of loss that is also memory of an absent richness and a set of clues to navigate the present by; the art is not one of forgetting but of letting go. And when everything else is gone, you can be rich in loss.

    'Consciousness is not simply a sensory-perceptual affair, a matter of mental imagery, as the contents of our mind would have us believe. It is deeply enmeshed with the brain mechanisms that automatically promote action readiness' - Jaak Panksepp

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
    - A.A. Milne.

    Rebecca Solnit, from A Field Guide to Getting Lost



    The dancer slows her frantic pace in pain and desperation
    Her aching limbs and downcast face aglow with perspiration
    Stiff as a wire her lungs of fire
    With just the briefest pause
    The flooding through her memory
    The echoes of old applause

    And she limps across the floor
    And closes the bedroom door

    The writer stares with glassy eyes
    Defies the empty page
    His beard is white, his face is lined and streaked with tears of rage
    Thirty years ago how the words would flow with passion and precision
    But now his mind is dark and dulled by sickness and indecision

    And he stares out the kitchen door
    Where the sun will rise no more

    Some are born to move the world
    To live their fantasies
    But most of us just dream about the things we'd like to be
    Sadder still to watch it die than never to have known it
    For you the blind who once could see
    The bell tolls for thee

    Default a double voice

    All through autumn we hear a double voice: one says everything is ripe; the other says everything is dying. The paradox is exquisite. We feel what the Japanese call “aware” — an almost untranslatable word meaning something like “beauty tinged with sadness."

    Default I wish I had

    I wish I were a poet.

    …the vast majority of the universe is composed of dark matter. The fragile balance depends on things we’ll never be able to see, hear, smell, taste, or touch. Life itself depends on them.
    What’s real? What isn’t real?
    Maybe those aren’t the right questions to be asking.
    What does life depend on?

    I wish I had made things for life to depend on.
