Welcome my Journal

I really don't have too much to say just now.  I'm new at this lj thing, and as my older kids will tell you, I'm totally not the type.  Not edgy enough.   It's a typical day at our house: chaos, confusion, disorganization, and disorder.  Five year old daughter is wandering about in bride costume, telling everyone how to live their lives.  Bridezilla already.  I'm SO proud.  Twelve year old is trying to lose herself in a book in order to mentally escape the fact that her skate bag was lost/stolen today.  Twenty-two year old daughter called in to report near miss in starring roll as the pedestrian in a pedestrian vs. auto accident.  Haven't heard from eighteen year old son, but twenty-two year old reports that he was out running and grumpy about being interrupted doing same.  Best of  all, Mr. Bear (husband) has uncharacteristically wandered in before 11 pm and is currently making dinner.  So, a happy ending tonight.

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
