"I missed you even when I was with you. That’s been my problem. I miss what I already have, and I surround myself with things that are missing."
"I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses."
"I have always loved the gaps, the spaces between things, as much as the things. I love staring, pondering, mulling, puttering. I love the times when someone or something is late—there’s that rich possibility of noticing more, in the meantime…Poetry calls us to pause. There is so much we overlook, while the abundance around us continues to shimmer, on its own."
"The idea that intelligence is linked to English pronunciation is a legacy from colonial thinking."
"I didn’t realize it, but the days came along one after another, and then two years were gone, and everything was gone, and I was gone."
Thought for the day: I’ve learned if you don’t talk to your mountains, your mountains will talk to you. All through the day, those negative thoughts will come. They are your mountains talking to you. You can sit back and believe those lies, or you can rise up and declare: “God is in control here. I will not allow my mountains to talk to me. Mountain, I’m saying to you, ‘Be removed. You will not defeat me.’”
