It is a delight to see you here in blogger land again, Eva. Perhaps now that you are riding on a wave of personal love (and pain) we might find you here more often - where the air is more poetic and less political. You certainly are capable of contributing to the poetic.

I ponder a contradiction in words and deeds. It is best explained in a rant that has no beginning and no end...so...let's call it a snap shot into my thinking:

When a man turns his back upon someone and walks away, it is so easy to see that he walks away. But when a man hits upon a method of turning his face towards the one he is walking away from, walking backwards while with salutations he greets the person, giving assurances again and again that he is coming immediately or incessantly saying 'Here I am' although he gets farther and farther away by walking backwards ... then it is not so easy to become aware. And so it is with the one who, rich in good intentions and quick to promise, retreats backwards farther and farther from the good. With every renewed intention and promise it seems as if he takes a step forward, and yet he not only remains standing still but really takes a step backward.



So . . . which way are you walking? From which side of your mouth are you talking?

*In an effort to be true, but knowing full well that all these words are orchestrated for your approval...peace*
