Give Me Your Hand

May 21 2016

Chances are somebody already said it better than I ever could.

Poems I like:

God speaks to each of us as he makes us,

then walks with us silently out of the night.

These are the words we dimly hear:

You, sent out beyond your recall,

go to the limits of your longing.

Embody me.

Flare up like a flame

and make big shadows I can move in.

Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.

Just keep going. No feeling is final.

Don’t let yourself lose me.

Nearby is the country they call life.

You will know it by its seriousness.

Give me your hand

-Rainier Rilke

Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.

-Kurt Vonnegut in Cat's Cradle

My therapist says I have a problem with vengeance. We'll see about that.

-Stewart Francis

Ladies, I'm single and ready to mingle. I always hate it when my single female friends tell me they can't find a good guy, and yet they just ignore me as a prospect. It's like saying you're hungry when there's a perfectly good bagel on the ground outside.

Telling myself I understand,
