ORANGE IMPATIENS 8 A.M. / I'M PATIENT






















Today my Zen Calendar says:

"When you get free from certain fixed concepts of the way the world is, you find it far more subtle, and far more miraculous, than you thought it was."

(Alan Watts)

A few days ago I got my turntable out of the closet, along with my collection of Bob Dylan albums.

"What's the matter with me,
I don't have much to say . . . "

(from "Watching the River Flow" -- Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, Vol. II, 1971)


































"Your vision will clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens."

(Carl Jung)


"No one ever told me that grief felt so much like fear."

(C.S. Lewis)


"Fear is felt in the upper chest and breathing passages. It is a sense that somehow our life and survival are being threatened. It is felt as a sense of dread and anxiety which eventually spreads throughout the entire body."

(John Friel and Linda Friel)
