Additional #VerseThursday verse -- since it's not all about me. It's about sharing and celebrating minds, and right now I am thinking of this song --

Gītāñjali 10, Rabindranath Tagore

Here is thy footstool and there rest thy feet where live the poorest, and lowliest, and lost.

When I try to bow to thee, my obeisance cannot reach down to the depth where thy feet rest among the poorest, and lowliest, and lost.

Pride can never approach to where thou walkest in the clothes of the humble among the poorest, and lowliest, and lost.

My heart can never find its way to where thou keepest company with the companionless among the poorest, the lowliest, and the lost.

Poem (continued) 

The engine whirls. No need to hasten or tarry.
We are on the right road, and neither of us know
How many days or years it’ll take till we make it.
And right now, in this hour smelling of soil and dew,
Before you slowly waken to gentle skylight,
We’re together, and this is all that really counts.

Ahead, barbed wires and checkpoints are still expected.
We risk shortage of fuel, meds, water, underwear…
Maybe courage, faith, and crystal-clear desire, too.
Next we’ll stop by some place, to rest a bit and heal,
To do what we should and it will be beautiful,
And take turns to carry forward each other’s dream.

It's #VerseThursday somewhere down the road. I bring you an original poem I wrote in the past week.

Aubade (of the roads)

Nothing quite prepared us for this, but here we are.
You lie asleep in the back seats, and all I see,
Through the rear mirror, are empty roads unfolding.
Turning off the headlights, as golden solar rays
Are about to fall from the sparsely-clouded sky,
I drive on, not too fast, in the wordless morning.

My eyes and feet are weary: They still remember
The star-strewn darkness, the unwatched land, how we found
Belonging, loneliness, passion, and how and why
We utterly gave in to each other, trembling
From the cold air of the night, and with the knowledge
That for a moment or two we were safe and free.

Good morning Party People, we are broadcasting live from the waiting room of a downtown clinic on this particular

thinking aloud 

I kind of feel bad that I've been a ghost here for the last week-ish (for a good reason though lmao) but I want my friends to know that I miss them and still care about them

he's one of those guys I don't have season tickets to but I have to box score open in another tab because what if Pi or The Wrestler happens again

Darren Aronofsky has made a few movies I really like a lot but he's the most frustrating kind of director because I have to respect the idiosyncrasies (i.e. I think The Fountain is fine, but what balls to even try) but he's like a broken clock that's figured out a way to be right a third time

Good morning Party People, welcome to the middle of the week


luckily I have a doctor's appointment booked for Thursday, I'm still sore as hell but I'll be good y'all ❤️

and yesterday random spots appeared on my arms and legs? They don't itch or anything and they're already starting to fade now? What is up with me?

This is the damnedest collection of symptoms I ever did have: after I took off the portable EKG device on Sunday, I strayed getting a ton of tension along the sides of my legs and and the of my knees, to to point where Sunday night it was hard to walk. Not the locomotion piece of it, that's fine, but it felt like I worked out way too hard. Today it's better, and it's mostly just below the knees now, plus my calves. The only constant has been pins and needles on under my feet.

Good afternoon Party People, it's a sick day for your boy, and I'm watching Wild at Heart
