HowieIt was love at first sight!Clad in shimmery purple and green, he had the most handsome face.As he admired my petuniasthat breezy fall afternoon,the first words out of my mouth were, “I love you! Please come back!”He’d strike a pose within the trees, dancing from limb to limb,as I tried to photograph him.He was playing hard to get.Soon every day we’d rendezvous— a date for drinks in my back ga Read more of this blog post »

“Follow your inner moonlight; don't hide the madness.”
Allen Ginsberg

“The weight of the world is love.
Under the burden of solitude,
under the burden of dissatisfaction
the weight,the weight we carry is love. ”
Allen Ginsberg

“Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.”
Allen Ginsberg

“Poetry is the one place where people can speak their original human mind. It is the outlet for people to say in public what is known in private. ”
Allen Ginsberg

“[...]the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road
