Alway open for you...

This place holds a soul; enter and ye shall find thee...

... and the man who must act for his own benefit who needs to start putting things right.

There's That Unflinching Spark


Come, come, whoever you are. 
Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving.  
It doesn't matter. 
Ours is not a caravan of despair. 
Come, even if you have broken 
your vows a thousand times. 
Come, yet again, come, come.

Why We Get Depressed At The Holidays, And How To Deal

Why We Get Depressed At The Holidays, And How To Deal

Judge a Moth by the Beauty of Its Candle

You are the king's son.
Why do you close yourself up?
Become a lover.

Don't aspire to be a general
or a minister of state.

One is a boredom for you,
the other a disgrace.

You have been a picture on a bathhouse wall
long enough. No one recognizes you here, do they?

God's lion disguised as a human being.
I saw that and put down the book
I was studying, Hariri's Maqamat.

There is no early and late for us.
The only way to measure a lover
is by the grandeur of the beloved.

Judge a moth by the beauty of its candle.

Shams is invisible because he is inside sight.
He is the intelligent essence
of what is everywhere at once, seeing.

David & Eli by Lucian Freud
"...died yesterday" was in July 2011. This is his last painting. And was unfinished. I have his self-portrait in here somewhere.

Closing Time

Closing Time by Joseph Peller

He addresses this song and many of those in here during this very informative honest interview in 1993 on MTV where the interviewer has listened very closely and is, like many, in awe...
