Pandemic Diary: 27 Dec 2020

Proof of the incarnation. We could never embody beauty this way without an indwelling spirit. Just what I needed at the end of this sad and tragic year. Thank you, Yuzuru Hanyu.

Pandemic Diary: 24 Oct 2020

Only a few days of this particular glory in the fall wetlands, before the fire burns out and the silvery smoke of bare trees remains.

Oh, and I tested negative for COVID antibodies. My grandson can rest easy.

Pandemic Diary: 27 Sept 2020

Jesse & Casey, Saguaro East (Dec 2006)


Today, like every other day,
we wake up empty and frightened.

Don’t open the door to the study and begin reading.
Take down a musical instrument.

Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
