Beth is a force for tolerance and understanding. She offers comfort to those in pain, and champions those who have difficulty speaking for themselves.

Beth has a delightfully lascivious mind, which she exercises with finely-honed restraint.

Beth is helpful and kind.

Beth writes well, with attention to mechanics, form, character, and content. She can handle pathos and dark moments with delicacy and romp through crackfic with delight.

Beth is well read.

Beth leads an examined life, and shares the fruits of that work.

Beth has a great, and wide-ranging sense of humor, which she shares with us all.

Beth is a year older better today.

Many happy returns of the day, lolmac, and may the year ahead be full of growth, opportunity, and shared laughter.

I send you a clear, cool, mountain day, with scudding high clouds that will coalesce to spread misting rain by morning (because I know you miss it sometimes), a delightful picnic lunch, and a crowd of your nearest and dearest to share it with.

A Few Words from the Wise

Speak to him, for there is none born wise.

-The Maxims of Ptahotep

~~~~~~~~~~


In mourning or rejoicing, be not far from me.

- an Ancient Egyptian Love Song

~~~~~~~~~~


But your embraces
alone give life to my heart
may Amun give me what I have found
for all eternity.


-Love Songs of the New Kingdom, Song #2

~~~~~~~~~~


To Know the Dark


To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is travelled by dark feet and dark wings.


-Wendell Berry

~~~~~~~~~~


Up in the morning's no for me,
Up in the morning early;
When a' the hills are covered wi' snaw,
I'm sure it's winter fairly.

-Robert Burns

~~~~~~~~~~


Visit to the Hermit Ts'ui


Moss covered paths between scarlet peonies,
Pale jade mountains fill your rustic windows.
I envy you, drunk with flowers,
Butterflies swirling in your dreams.


-Ch'ien Ch'i

~~~~~~~~~~


Mistress of high achievement, O lady Truth,
do not let my understanding stumble
across some jagged falsehood.


-Pindar

~~~~~~~~~~


Every Gaudy colour
Is a bit of truth.


-Nathalia Crane

~~~~~~~~~~


I counted two-and-twenty stenches,
All well defined, and several stinks.


-Samuel Coleridge
