Traffic, people about their business, even birds in flight.


For the shortest moment it’s as if we all agreed to draw our curtains

“Does it matter whether you hate yourself? At least love your eyes that can see, your mind that can hear the music, the thunder of the wings.”

“I've changed my ways a little, I cannot now
Run with you in the evenings along the shore,
Except in a kind of dream, and you, if you dream a moment,
You see me there.”

The path to art will not be paved by either languorous witticisms or caustic one-liners.

Before I go on, two disclaimers. The first, Gay Walley is a colleague and a friend. The second, I am a 60-year-old man. It is important that I state these facts a

I'm not aware of any political poetry more astute than Jeffers'. No poet saw and wrote as clearly of the consequences of our interdependency and the monsters our cities would become. His portraits of the natural world are rare in their clarity—withou ...more

Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa
“All this shouldn't last; but it will, always; the human 'always' of course, a century, two centuries... and after that it will be different, but worse. We were the Leopards, the Lions; those who'll take our place will be little jackals, hyenas; and the whole lot of us, Leopards, jackals, and sheep, we'll all go on thinking ourselves the salt of the earth.”
Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa
