If you don't find friendliness, hospitality, and compassion where you live, flee.

Playing Games

never play chess with someone playing poker. never.

the poker player sees all you see on the board, but you will never see what they see in their hand. play poker and they will have as much uncertainty as you and will judge their risks with a great deal more caution. in deed, make this double-game player uncomfortable with uncertainty by playing their game and you will find they usually fold.

Theives' Honor

among thieves, honor is a pragmatic necessity, not a character trait.

The Science of Science

I love science. It fascinates me, continually pointing to truths tho never illuminating. The spiritual does this. And because I have such regard for the derivative understandings of existence science provides, I have little regard for those who close its books and make it their religion of hostility to everything science isn't. In a way, their belief system is a sacrilege to the pure motives of science. Take a look at all the science news; it is a cavalcade of discoveries, a process of learning, not just 'knowing'. And in its fabulous discoveries are discoveries of its errors. In deed, the history of science is rife with mistakes and its landscape littered with the bones of martyrs for its corrections. It would be well to see its landscape littered with the bones of those who continually attempt to make science an iconoclastic ideology.

Perfect Isn't

perfect grammar is not perfect truth
perfect mathematics is not perfect reality
and perfect structure is not perfect beauty

The Low Door to Love

i once came to love by a gate
to a door i was too tall for
and ruminated on the chore
until it was too big to state,

then i recalled the old wooded gate
with its stone wall and door so low
and how i stooped and bent my back
and to the other side walked through slow.

A Petal Falls

is it a flower when a petal falls?
and can the same be true for love?

Natural Love

a natural source
knows its natural course
and can do nothing less nor more,
and in moving to its end
it moves to its beginning.
there is nothing new in this knowing.
we have known it before we knew,
tho in knowing it anew
we are astonished
because we see the other
in the mirror of our soul
and feel at home.

Love Wrecks

A love that moves too fast usually crashes into another love.
