ON BEGINNING NEW BOOKS: January 2014



In praise of white
In praise of possibility
In praise of poem
In praise of pure
In praise of salt and emptiness and snow
In praise of footsteps taken and erased
In praise of nothing
In praise of breath and bird and tree
In praise of falling
In praise of wings
In praise of winter
In praise of endings and beginnings
In praise of blank
Blank page
In praise of mystery
of story
In praise of ice and sky and moon
of drift and shadow
In praise of words waiting to be written
So many words
Waiting in the white

  1. Lovely! I am right there, in the midst of blank-page-possibilities, ready for new beginnings. :)

  2. Lovely...a snowy landscape always evokes newness and a chance to begin again.

  3. Thanks for reading. It was a sweep of white, and it came at exactly the right time to dream a new book to life.
