a sense of peace / October 14, 1968 -- 19 years old

















Am I my mind, I ask myself again
and watch images that race
beyond me into the crazy
whirling mindless self
that occupies the
emptiness
of
me

Today is the Feast of St. Nicholas. As I understand from what I've read, this is a secular holiday when celebrated in the Netherlands. It's a celebration "not about belief or non-belief, but a faith in the capacity of people to find pleasure in each other and in their lives." Those are the words of Tolbert McCarroll, the author of A Winter Walk.
