Yes, because it's Thursday - that pretty much sums it up.

I bet the swamp jessamine is gorgeous - I actually have never seen it (or was aware that I'd seen it). As for poetry, it's as mysterious to me as science is - so I suppose that I find it to be a comfortable place. Understanding it (or understand what others might understand) - perhaps that's a goal, perhaps it's irrelevant, I don't know.

Will I be seeing you guys on Saturday?


All I know is that I feel good when I read your stuff....even though I don't understand it most of the time. Just keep writing.


That's why we have always had shamans and storytellers, myth and metaphor, someone to tell the tale around the campfire.

We like to think that we make the majority of our day to day decisions based on logic, reason, analysis of data, etc., but what most psychological studies reveal about that is: not really.

Art, the real stuff, gets that. And, on some level, when we look at art, we get that it gets us.


Dan, I have no idea how this happened, but I completely missed this post when it went up (go figure). As you know, I generally pick up the phone and call you when I really like one of your posts. Since it's been so long, I'll post it here: great stuff, made me remember one of the reasons I like you.
