Here we go round the prickly pear
    Prickly pear prickly pear
    Here we go round the prickly pear
    At five o’clock in the morning.

   
    Between the idea
    And the reality
    Between the motion
    And the act
    Falls the Shadow

— from The Hollow Men by T. S. Eliot

Love Should Manifest Itself . . .   2 comments

Yellow Cactus Blossoms — Tiled Gallery by kenne

Suffering occurs when we want

other people to love us in the way

that we imagine we want to be loved,

and not in the way that love should manifest itself

— free and untrammeled,

guiding us with its force and driving us on.

— Paulo Coelho

Did you ever

trip and fall

on a cactus?

Try hiking

Blackett’s Ridge

in the light of

a full moon.

Colors give life

to that without

motion —

but what is existence

without motion,

locked in time

forever!

“. . . the truth is that as soon as you start walking,

all that noise, all those rumours, fade out.

What’s new? Nothing:

the calm eternity of things, endlessly renewed.”

“So beautiful of course compared
with what a man looks like
with his two bags full
and his other thing
hanging down out of him
or sticking up at you like a hatrack
no wonder they hide it with a cabbageleaf.”

— from Ulysses by James Joyce
