L'Chaim



i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any–lifted from the no
of all nothing–human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
e.e. cummings
1894-1962

World Poetry Day

To celebrate world poetry day, I offer Emily Dickinson's 466:

I dwell in Possibility –
A fairer House than Prose –
More numerous of Windows –
Superior – for Doors –

Of Chambers as the Cedars –
Impregnable of eye –
And for an everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky –

Of Visitors – the fairest –
For Occupation – This –
The spreading wide my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise –

Seattle Monorail Ride


Well, this is an experimental post.  I don't even know if this video will show up on most computers or phones.  It's with my new camera, which I didn't realize recorded in AVCHD instead of mp4.  I'm checking it out on different computers to see which ones will play it.

It's a very short clip of the start of the monorail ride back to downtown Seattle from the Space Needle, a trip that goes through that very interesting structure on the way.  If you can't see this and really want to experience the monorail in Seattle I would recommend a trip to the city.  It's truly an amazing place that I have fun exploring!
