A Meditation On Artifical Intelligence

Today I wonder
As I consider AI
And our species’ drives;
Is our long-term legacy
Organic or digital?

Dreadful thoughts from a young mind 

“My dad is dying”

My son’s friend was telling me

“I don’t want to go”

“Not there when I needed him”

Dreadful thoughts for a young mind 

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.
