Cleaning off my desk -

Today is devoted to sorting through the books and papers on my desk.  It is a big desk and can hold a great deal.  I count at least 30 most precious books, two plants, cards, magazines, articles, candles and a lamp.

I come across many treasures in this archaeological dig. These quotes I sent to a friend after her friend died are with me now.  Each moment, birth and death, inhalation, exhalation, breath.

John Squandra:

When you love, you complete a circle.  When you die, the circle remains.

A.R. Ammons:

The reeds give way to the wind and give the wind away.

Ursala Le Guin:

Only in silence the word, only in dark the light, only in dying life.

Gustave Flaubert:

Tears are for the heart what water is for fish.
