Don’t give up.
The poems in Wanderings at Deadline were written over a number of years. After I left journalism, I wrote in solitude for a long time, before I started publishing. In my 20’s and 30’s, I spent a lot of those years just filling notebook after notebook. Most of that time, I didn’t own a TV, so I read a ton and had a lot of time to write. I was 43 before I finally submitted and published my first poem and 47 when I published my first book.

Original Wisdom: Stories of an Ancient Way of Knowing Original Wisdom: Stories of an Ancient Way of Knowing by Robert Wolff

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is a remarkable book. It brings the reader face-to-face with several mid-20th century cultures that continue to reside on the other side of an unfathomably deep chasm with post-Enlightenment Western viewpoints and values. It also brings us into the world of the Sng’oi, an ancient aboriginal people Read more of this blog post »

Jane Hirshfield
“Everything has two endings-
a horse, a piece of string, a phone call.

Before a life, air.
And after.

As silence is not silence, but a limit of hearing.”
Jane Hirshfield, Come, Thief: Poems

Jane Hirshfield
“Tree

It is foolish
to let a young redwood
grow next to a house.

Even in this
one lifetime,
you will have to choose.

That great calm being,
this clutter of soup pots and books--

Already the first branch-tips brush at the window.
Softly, calmly, immensity taps at your life.”
