My challenge to you here, is to journey into a deeper intimacy with the world
and your life without any promise of safety or guarantee of reward
beyond the intrinsic value of full participation.

While we sleep upstairs, the potatoes in the cold cellar are quietly growing, reaching, reaching, first they will get the juice on the second shelf, then the apple sauce on the top shelf, and who knows what those spindly tentacles will grab next. ‪

There is no such thing as the perfect cast.
There are only casts that catch fish and casts that do not.

Shagadelic

I was out for a sunrise walk in Rockland. The water was glassy, reflecting just the right mixture of clouds and sky. Then a lobster boat went by, throwing up a perfect wake. As I was photographing, a cormorant (locally called “shag”) surfaced.
