In Case You're Curious

For anyone who might be interested, I'm now on Dreamwidth, also as thothmes.dreamwidth.org/  [Thanks for the tip on the invite code, Zip].  Not, mind you that I've done anything there yet, or even started to set up a reading page, but as I intend to hang out over there too, it just seemed uncivil not to create a home there where people can find out about me when I leave comments.  I'm hoping that a small idea I have for a  small fic will bear fruit, and if so I will post it there by way of introduction to the populace there, but RL is rocketting along just now, so no promises.

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.



Every Gaudy colour
Is a bit of truth.

-Nathalia Crane


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

-Samuel Coleridge
