El Greco’s masterpiece which is located at the Cathedral of Toledo, Spain.
Mrs. Abstract and I toured the cathedral yesterday. Lots of hard walking ascending and descending narrow, small-stone covered streets before arriving at the cathedral. 11,000 steps.
You come sweet little bird, greet
Us this morning, good tidings, a spirit
To light our souls, to see
The essence in every moment
Days when flowers bloom
Or nights when glasses are broken
When strength rises from suffering
When hope remains during uncertainties.
I’m reading Moby Dick, part of a group-read through dolcebellezza, bloggers reading together a selected book. In the month of August Moby-Dick was the choice. One can follow the link:book
May be the path has more leaves now
Than when we passed by the day before
Your mind is somewhere else since your friend left
You are not paying attention.
But you still return to the river to fish.
Walking to the river is my quotidian proclimation
A morning with flashes of sharp breeze and exaggerated cloud formations
A fugitive or a caged bird
Life, a quilt floating in time, fertile and vulnerable
Always lacking in certainty
Piecing parcels together fuels the effort
Ages I scale are experiences of different personalities
Each stage has its own expressions and demands:
Writing, cooking, doing laundry—little things, mundane and sacred
The progression, a knowing like I felt everything
Fishemen, artists, lactating mothers, even geniuses
Want to live a real life of home.
Nothing in particular
you should write particulars
two balloons, two l’s, two o’s
two hot air balloons and one red balloon
the driver forgets the tractor
few particular things unfinished.
She experienced a good fortune
She was hiking in the woods
Hungry and exhausted and lost
Found sweet, abundant, wild strawberries
Two young fishermen with new. rods
Eager to find answer to the test:
Do fish come with the tide?
Be a guardian angel
A caravan may need you
Walking for days looking for answers
For a practical place for winter living.
Would you rather study
different calamities in the world?
To memorize details may not be necessary or a time lost.
If you walk a lot
You may arrive at odd places
Kindness is rare, start the day with gratitude.
The simplest way to change the world,
Restore glaciers and abundant forest
And slows down the wind.
The caravan will find the oasis
The nomads can walk forever.
