“We need hope, the sense of a future”

“To live on a day-to-day basis is insufficient for human beings;

we need to transcend, transport, escape; we need meaning,

understanding, and explanation; we need to see over-all patterns

in our lives. We need hope, the sense of a future. And we need

freedom (or, at least, the illusion of freedom) to get beyond ourselves,

whether with telescopes and microscopes and our ever-burgeoning

technology, or in states of mind that allow us to travel to other worlds,

to rise above our immediate surroundings.”

— Oliver Sacks

“The sea answers all questions”

“The sea answers all questions…

…and always in the same way; for when you read in the papers
the interminable discussions and the bickering and the
prognostications and the turmoil, the disagreements and the
fateful decisions and agreements and the plans and the
programs and the threats and the counter threats, then you
close your eyes and the sea dispatches one more big roller
in the unbroken line since the beginning of the world and it
combs and breaks and returns foaming and saying:
“So soon?”
— E. B. White, “On A Florida Key”

“There are only ten minutes in the life of a pear when it is perfect to eat.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

On my morning walk
I found this last lonely
perfect pair,
unreachable by deer,
unscathed by birds,
unappreciated by walkers-by.
And so it’s victory
earned this study.
