I can be analytic,
but I prefer to eat and drink my art.

Holding On




















What can we hold onto?
When everything changes,
When everything passes,
When the years recreate who we are,
Sometimes lifting us,
Sometimes tearing us apart.

O love,
The clich├ęd word so easily pronounced,
The greeting card verse
Spoken without feeling,
O love,
If kept alive and breathing . . .

There is so much to love in this world.
Even when you are old and confined
You can love a memory.
Even when memories fall away
You can love an idea.
Even when cognition falters,
When fear invades,
When the dark idea of godless death threatens,
Believe!

Hold onto love,
However untranslatable it may seem.
Love will persist.
You will be saved.

When you don’t have enough to eat, you treasure every bite.

Only the poor understand how lucky the rest of us are.

I n a perfect world,

there would be no need for emulsification.

Enlightenment comes from removing the barriers you have erected to what is already here, what has always been here.
