But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

“I saw a poet chase a butterfly in a meadow.
He put his net on a bench where a boy sat reading a book.
It’s a misfortune that it is usually the other way round.”

The secret lies in the present —
if you pay attention to the present,
you will be able to improve it.
And if you improve the present,
whatever happens afterwards will be better too.
Each day brings us Eternity,

Old Baldy And A Poem I Will Never Write   Leave a comment

Super Trail Vista (1 of 1)-5Hiking The Super Trail On Mt. Wrightson — This image by kenne is of Old Baldy from the Josephine Saddle.

Thinking about a poem I’ll never write.
With gut on wood and hide, and plucking thumb,
Grope and stutter for the words, invent a tune,
In any tongue, this moment one time true
Be wine of blood or rhythm drives it through —
A leap of words to things and there it stops.

— from the poem “A Stone Garden” by Gary Snyder

Learning is all about connections,
and through our connections with unique people,
we are able to gain a true understanding
of the world around us.
