    I’ll just leave this here for anyone that needs it.

    There is no mysterious essence we can call a 'place'. Place is change. It is motion killed by the mind, and preserved in the amber of memory.

    Some pics from this year:

    To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    Most of my life I'd find my special spot connected to some nature scene and sit there for hours at a time. Living only in the city turns my heart grey.

    I'm trying to work towards living permantly far enough into nature that I don't see other people but instead see wildlife. A month ago I made eye contact with a large deer and it filled up my heart with its purity and wildness of spirit. I've also been friends with trees and only understand peace and meaning when sitting quietly and transcending words.

    The Lake Isle of Innisfree
    William Butler Yeats

    I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
    And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
    Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee,
    And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

    And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
    Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
    There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
    And evening full of the linnet's wings.

    I will arise and go now, for always night and day
    I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
    While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
    I hear it in the deep heart's core.

    I've been noticing all kinds of new things on my walk this spring. Yesterday I saw some waterfowl I'd never seen before. There was a different kind of duck (obviously not a mallard!) and a large very dark gray bird with a yellow beak. The day before that, I saw a vulture alight on a bare tree, with a few crows one, by one, joining in to harass it. The crows would kind of fly around it, then rest on a nearby branch, then fly around it again. Apparently crows do this kind of thing all the time, but it's the first I've seen it.
    A path is made by walking on it.

    Meh. Sleeping on the ground sucks. Lol. But I would again, so there's that.

    Isn’t it? Like all photos of nature...those images don’t even come close to doing being there justice. It is like an enchanted forest and whenever I’m there I’m thinking I’m going to come upon a fairy or Frodo or something like that at any moment.

    Also, thank you so much for posting the Yeats poem. I have always loved/identifed so strong with it...and yet I had forgotten it existed . I will keep it close now.
