Find Me Where the Wild Things Are

“He said, 

“you are beautiful”

I told him

“beautiful”

is a lazy and lousy way to describe me”

Everybody Dies, But Not Everybody Lives

Struggle and criticisms are prerequisites for greatness.”

Apply Within

You once told me
You wanted to find
Yourself in the world –
And I told you to
First apply within,
To discover the world
within you.

You once told me
You wanted to save
The world from all its wars –
And I told you to
First save yourself
From the world,
And all the wars
You put yourself
Through.

― Suzy Kassem, Apply Within

Replete

Today I’m flying low and I’m
not saying a word
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.

The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.

But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though really I’m traveling
a terrific distance.

Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.

— Mary Oliver
