"The only forgiveness that is essential...

is for yourself. You must forgive yourself for having needed, for having been small. You must forgive yourself for coping the best you could... You must forgive yourself for the limitations you've lived with as an adult. You must forgive yourself for repeating your victimization... You must forgive yourself for needing time to heal now, and you must forgive yourself as generously as you can, all your compassion and understanding, so you can direct your attention and energy toward your own healing. This forgiveness is what's essential."

Bass and Davis

the Fool

“the principle of courage, state of no fear, ecstacy and peak experience... all is movement all is change, in the deepest blindness is the deepest sight... experiencing absolute faith and trust, a feeling of protection, a sense that all will work out, being open to whatever... paradoxical nature wisdom and foolishness, leaping off into some new phase, expect the unexpected... trusting one's 'elf', the void which contains all possibilities, pure spontaneity... the image of a spirit totally free, beginning, optimism, failure to follow your instincts... a sudden unlooked for opportunity, an unexpected influence, possibility of adventure or escape, abandon the old ways start something new and untested, jump...inspiration, naivete, moments of decision, opportunity hidden within apparently difficult situations, mysterious liberating factor that cuts across form... the spirit in search of experience, folly, mania, extravagance, negligence... the Joker, the novitiate... the child within, beginningless beginning, sourceless source, endless ending, all things and no-things, having faith that the 'Universe' will take care of you... a passive being who does not know where he is going, the bottomless abyss, the absolute, whatever is beyond our understanding… trusting silence, receiving protection through your faith and innocence, anything or nothing, the sum total of all the other cards, Gd is in all things unto all things”

10th anniversary

Tuesday, January 09, 2007



The first thing I ever made, that I really thought about making as I made it, was a squirrel. I was in the first grade. Make an animal. I can still smell the dark grey school clay and feel it in my hands cool and damp. It took a few days to dry. I remember I kept glancing over at it on the drying table. I couldn't believe how much it looked like a squirrel to me. I saved it for about 45 years. Then one day in the midst of a major clean I tossed it out along with a lot of other 'sacred' stuff. But I kept the sign that the teacher had made for the display cases in the hallway. Go figure. Today I saw a squirrel that made me feel exactly the same way I did then.
