Profound commitment to a dream does not
confine or constrain: it liberates.
Even a difficult, winding path can lead
to your goal if you follow it to the end.

Our Zen Fountain — July 11, 2008   5 comments

(First Posted July 11, 2008)Zen Fountain

 

The Water Flows

It’s hard for me to believe that it was six weeks ago
when I ordered the materials and began the preliminary
preparation for a fountain in our backyard.
There are many reasons why so long,
not the least of which was the delayed delivery of
the fountain pedestal, which finally can in yesterday.  

By working with nature, you can look into your own nature.

“The secret of life is enjoying
the passage of time
Any fool can do it”

You, George Carlin — A Postscript, June 24, 2008   1 comment

(First Posted June 24, 2008)(I love this Associated Press photo of George Carlin, so I’m sharing it with the following poem.)

You, George Carlin

You,
George Carlin
were a genus
among geniuses
an original

You,
George Carlin
found your voice
by being out of step
and using two-way words

You,
George Carlin
spoke for us
yet to find our voices
as we recognize truth

You,
George Carlin
causing us to listen
knowing freedom
to exercise our demons

You,
George Carlin
observed our institutions
making nothing off-limits
developing lists of our follies

You,
George Carlin
bridged the generations
making funny faces
becoming the voice of Fillmore

You,
George Carlin
were a provocateur
self-expressed new wave,
remaining old school

You,
George Carlin
Made radio human
with sorted disc jockeys
and the hippie dippy weatherman

You,
George Carlin
made words heard
but never believed
now everyone else will listen

“Every man’s foremost task
is the actualization of his unique, 

unprecedented and never-recurring potentialities,
and not the repetition of something that another, 
and be it even the greatest, has already achieved.”

― Martin Buber
