After weeks of watching the roof leak
          I fixed it tonight
by moving a single board

A Quote by Gary Snyder on creativity and life

In the belly of the furnace of creativity is a sexual fire; the flames twine about each other in fear and delight.  The same sort of coiling, at a cooler, slower pace, is what the life of this planet looks like.  The enormous spirals of typhoons, the twists and turns of mountain ranges and gorges, the waves and the deep ocean currents - a dragonlike writhing.

A Quote by Gary Snyder on blue, light, moon, and stars

in the blue night
frost haze, the sky glows
with the moon
pine tree tops
bend snow-blue, fade
into sky, frost, starlight.
the creak of boots.
rabbit tracks, deer tracks,
what do we know.

A Quote by Gary Snyder on sky, stars, powers, thoughts, space, and mind

Gratitude to the Great Sky who holds billions of stars -
and goes yet beyond that -
beyond all powers, and thoughts and yet is within us -
Grandfather Space.
The Mind is his Wife
