Vera Nazarian
“The desert and the ocean are realms of desolation on the surface.

The desert is a place of bones, where the innards are turned out, to desiccate into dust.

The ocean is a place of skin, rich outer membranes hiding thick juicy insides, laden with the soup of being.

Inside out and outside in. These are worlds of things that implode or explode, and the only catalyst that determines the direction of eco-movement is the balance of water.

Both worlds are deceptive, dangerous. Both, seething with hidden life.

The only veil that stands between perception of what is underneath the desolate surface is your courage.

Dare to breach the surface and sink.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

“[I]t is not by being richer or more powerful that a man becomes better; one is a matter of fortune, the other of virtue.

Assuredly, whomsoever this concupiscence leads into marriage deserves payment rather than affection.”
Héloïse, The Letters of Abélard and Héloïse

Steve Goodier
