barrels of wine, and pinholes for dancing

"Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?"~Friedrich Nietzsche

"I don't want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance."  ~George Balanchine

sun beams hit your eye lids, if you are awake, you are alive.
The sweat of the Sun licks my window pane, there are droplets of wonder filling holes in my rib cage. These lips are wet with grape juice, and I feel happier than a flask~brushing drunk.   Everyday, there are so many things to celebrate.  Today, there is a tuned guitar, warmed oats, milk, bare legs, a river calling, and a bucket of blueberries.  I want to slip into nakedness, I want to scribble apple trees. I want to catch my spirits and seal them in a jar.  If only everyone had sealed buckets for our good days, we'd spend less time weeping.

The ponderous sky is making a home for me. 
Beneath the Tree's elbow, Below the Oak petal, Beside the Rabbit's surrender.
Today, I am alive with the drunkenness of love. 


On Tuesday of the passing week, I found my crooked feet in a bookstore.  
When your lost inside of a book sanctuary,  there is always stillness,  and silence.
A stillness to the untouched paper trees. A silence from the gatherers, and book readers.  When, I am colored by the turning of pages, and the quietude of the people,  I am reminded of how silence can be treasure.  If only more places wore silence like jewelry, pausing time to be motionless.     On this day, a sweet and hairy boy took my hand, and placed books of Rumi from the Poetry Tree.   
I am Happy, my heart is being furnished by Sunlight, and I have found wealth in the palm of a flower.


"We gather at night to celebrate
being human. Sometimes we call out low
to the tambourine. Fish drink the sea,
but the sea does not get smaller! We
eat the clouds and evening light. We
are slaves tasting the royal wine." *Rumi





Kisses, hugs, and a light to find your way home.
Enjoy the day. xoxoxoxo

  9. This is one of my favorite outfits of yours lately, I think. I don't know, it's just that it's kind of simple and sweet but it's still so gorgeous! The little bow is also an adorable touch. :) Ah, and bookstores are basically the most wonderful places ever, besides libraries of course.
