Blackett’s Ridge Trail — iPhone Image by kenne
I exist in thought and action,
continually interpreting each
not knowing myself once and for all,
never being present once and for all.
I exist in mind and body,
continually maintaining each
not by what I know, but
by what I don’t know.
I exist to establish connections
between the spiritual and material
sinking to stabilize self by
staying connected to nature;
knowing that the world is always
different for each individual,
as it is for my needs, values
and expectations as they evolve.
I exist to understand my being
to think and feel differently by
learning from the poets,
reading poetry every day.
Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
— Oscar Wilde
