« “It was better for me when I could imagine greatness in others, even if it wasn’t always there,” said Charles Bukowski, a generally cranky writer not renowned for his optimism. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, this strategy will also work wonders for you in the coming days. Trying to see what’s great about other people will tend to activate your own dormant greatness, and will just generally make you feel good. So ask yourself: What’s beautiful, smart, interesting, and successful about the people you know? Fantasize aggressively. »

Wonder Woman Talks On Rope to the Foremost Job Candidates
by Darryl Price


It’s not about the lasso. That’s so easily dangerous and
Petty. Instead it’s always going to be about you learning
To accept and respect what awesome powers it represents, that
It’ll so quickly place into your sore and bleeding hands
Like crushed ice. It’s an immediate, felt responsibility. There must
Ever be striking the cold clang balance between what usage
Does while in your care to yourself and what changes
It may bring forth in all others just as it’s  
Finding fashion for justice or for ill—because you’ll likely  
Strum along with your own body in motion. And that  
Will have its own lingering consequences for answering for the   
Rest of your life; a mission you’re expected not to
Survive. But the grand mystery of things has never been
Solved to my own personal satisfaction. I believe there’s every
Chance you’ll find a lasting Grace with which to walk.

100edgeeffects:

Pocket Sometimes a snake passes that is the length of a street. It is made from shadows. The poison that seeps from its skin sets whom it contacts into a dreaming where tiny suspended fragments from bluegrass songs dissolve in drops of water that coalesce in the air. Absorption gives way to countless pinpoint views of a river on which a dory hovers in a glass surface stillness.  The same tiny view is everywhere repeating. The air is paper rubbed on asphalt, porous and collapsing. As I peer into a pinhole I expand it: a side-effect of focus becomes the frame that I step through.  Then all that remains of the border is white tracery decay.  The dory and the river it’s on disappear into the glass surface stillness.  Maybe this is what  poison does, stuffs you into a pocket and leaves you there.

Sonnet On Approaching Italy  by Oscar Wilde
I reached the Alps: the soul within me burned,Italia, my Italia, at thy name:And when from out the mountain’s heart I cameAnd saw the land for which my life had yearned,I laughed as one who some great prize had earned:And musing on the marvel of thy fameI watched the day, till marked with wounds of flameThe turquoise sky to burnished gold was turned.The pine-trees waved as waves a woman’s hair,And in the orchards every twining sprayWas breaking into flakes of blossoming foam:But when I knew that far away at RomeIn evil bonds a second Peter lay,I wept to see the land so very fair.

Sonnet On Approaching Italy  by Oscar Wilde

I reached the Alps: the soul within me burned,
Italia, my Italia, at thy name:
And when from out the mountain’s heart I came
And saw the land for which my life had yearned,
I laughed as one who some great prize had earned:
And musing on the marvel of thy fame
I watched the day, till marked with wounds of flame
The turquoise sky to burnished gold was turned.
The pine-trees waved as waves a woman’s hair,
And in the orchards every twining spray
Was breaking into flakes of blossoming foam:
But when I knew that far away at Rome
In evil bonds a second Peter lay,
I wept to see the land so very fair.

sleep is important, dreams are important by cara fox

Someone once told me that no one ever sleeps with anyone, that sleeping is the one thing that you do on your own. That same person also told me that he believed in me, but that was a long time ago now. The last three nights I have slept with a empty notebook as a cold lover. A pen sits in it’s open spine waiting. This is to be my dream journal. Some article told me to write down everything I remember from my dreams, that when I wake up at dusky dawns to tell my new friend everything I can. This, the article tells me, is the first step to lucid dreaming. I know people who want to lucid dream so they can fly, create impossible worlds to live in while their eyes are closed. I used to dream about being pregnant a lot. Walking barefoot on cold linoleum with my swollen belly in front of me. I was so happy in those dreams, I woke up feeling like warm honey was rushing through me. My favourite dreams are about love, and lovers. Sometimes I wake up coming. But most mornings I wake at 5am because that is when my cat does. Even sleeping on a friends couch thousands of kilometers away from him I woke at dawn thinking I could hear him calling for me to let him inside, or feed him breakfast. Instead I found my neck cramped and a message from someone I once thought I could of fallen in love with.

What This Is

This is a ball of faint white lines.  This is a cut paper world populated with transparent creatures and tiny sounds that drift down silver and turning and fine. This is networks of letters. This is a late night stillness made of cotton balls filled with helium and the giant wooden dinosaurs and plastic insects that hover in it.  This is sightlines left by ghosts
