20 November 2008


I'm looking through a small catalogue of Uncommon Gifts, and one of them is a pillow with a Winnie the Pooh Statement on it:

"If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you."

The statement strikes me as strange and I want to disagree until I think of Winnie the Pooh saying it. I read the Tao of Pooh a long while ago and liked it.

I love you!

And, all the life-changing reads you've introduced me to, like:

A Just Anger
Marge Piercy

Anger shines through me.
Anger shines through me.
I am a burning bush.
My rage is a cloud of flame.
My rage is a cloud of flame
in which I walk
seeking justice
like a precipice.
How the streets
of the iron city
flicker, flicker,
and the dirty air
Anger storms
between me and things,
A good anger acted upon
is beautiful as lightning
and swift with power.
A good anger swallowed,
a good anger swallowed
clots the blood
to slime.
