AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Homer, The Rapids, Hudson River, Adirondacks, 1894


Fifty years ago I learned to jump off the calendar
but I kept getting drawn back on for reasons
of greed and my imperishable stupidity.
Of late I've escaped those fatal squares
with their razor-sharp numbers for longer and longer.
I had to become the moving water I already am.


- Jim Harrison, from "Calendars"

Keep reminding me.
