“The ideal art, the noblest of art: working with the complexities of life, refusing to simplify, to “overcome” doubt.” ~ Joyce Carol Oates
“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.” ~ Gilda Radner
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
Sunrise with snow . . . a little allusion to beat the heat, or at least to pretend it does . . . and at least it’s not as smokey as yesterday. Being a Floridian, I can easily handle the heat; I’m just being cranky. Ummmm, I gotta take that back. I just went outside. It is smokier than yesterday. Dag nab it! The stuff is so thick you can taste it. Regardless, I have to go into town to get some first aid stuff. There’s a loose toenail needs tending, which forces me to go into town when I don’t want to. It’s just a mundane day, and I appreciate that greatly.
All is well. Goof gloriously.
