Poem by Kathleen Jamie

toendtobegin:

I walk at the land’s edge,
turning in my mind
a private predicament.
Today the sea is indigo.
Thirty years an adult –
same mind, same
ridiculous quandaries –
but every time the sea
appears differently: today
a tumultuous dream,
flinging its waves ashore –

Nothing resolved,
I tread back over the moor
– but every time the moor
appears differently: this evening,
tufts of bog-cotton
unbutton themselves in the wind
– and then comes the road
so wearily familiar
the old shining road
that leads everywhere

A good book … leaves you wanting to reread the book. A great book compels you to reread your own soul.
– Richard Flanagan; The Narrow Road to the Deep North (via wordpainting)
Who are we, if not measured by our impact on others? That’s who we are! We’re not who we say we are, we’re not who we want to be — we are the sum of the influence and impact that we have, in our lives, on others.

Young women play on a seesaw in Korea, 1931

Original Cirque du soleil in hanbok. Looks fun — assuming you manage to maintain balance in the air and land properly! The fulcrum looks like a pile of rugs with someone sitting on it for stability. That is old school.

If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere, insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?
– Alexander Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago (via visualturn)
