It issued forth
from the Crow's mouth
but it was prayer
on my lips.
It pierced the morning
separating night from day.
I clung to its echoes
the way a bird clings
to a ferocious wind
as it cleaves its space from the air.
Slicing the indivisible
the way a moment
slices future from past
yet changes in each instant
always different, always the same.
I knew the day'd be bright
whether or not the sun shone
for I'd spent my ~time~
in the blackness of that night.

"Magic is just science we don’t understand yet.
- Arthur C. Clarke
In creative work — creative work of all kinds — those who are the world’s working artists
are not trying to help the world go around, but forward. Which is something altogether different
from the ordinary. Such work does not refute the ordinary.
It is, simply, something else.
Its labor requires a different outlook — a different set of priorities."
- Mary Oliver

“At worst, one is in motion; and at best,
Reaching no absolute, in which to rest,
One is always nearer by not keeping still.”

Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance,

"But when I lean over the chasm of myself -
it seems my God is dark
and like a web: a hundred roots
This is the ferment I grow out of.
More I don't know, because my branches
rest in deep silence, stirred only by the wind."
- Rainer Maria Rilke

“Of all evil I deem you capable: therefore I want good from you.
Verily, I have often laughed at the weaklings
who thought themselves good because they had no claws."

The teacher who is indeed wise
does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom
but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind."
