Self Cruelty 


I hate my mistakes
For I expect perfection
Savage to myself
I exhibit no kindness
This is not a healthy thing

Reading Gary Snyder 

The morning quiet

I’m reading Gary Snyder

His words speak to me

My journey overlaps his

Mountains, rivers without end


Snyder’s has long been amongst my favorites. My personal overlap with his life a big part of that. My journeys through the Pacific Northwest, through Oregon, California; life and an eclectic array of work all make me feel a spirit connection.
